The Nigerian military has changtl substantially from what it was at political independence and in the first half of the decade of national government. According to Ihonvbere (1998) “at initial time, the military organisation was certainly looked down upon by the larger society as a place for dropouts, thugs and persons who could not succeed in other spheres of life. The level of education, even among the officer corps, was very low and many had been promoted to higher ranks as a precipitate reaction to the departure of European officers and the need for indigenous leadership in the armed forces”. Military professionalism of managing conflict was emphasized. However, since the military seized power in 1966 and even moreso since the civil war of 1967 to 1970, the military has changed. There has been non-military uses of the military in Nigeria. Thus, a work on the non-military uses of the miliary becomes imperative. There are categories of performance, economic, social, religious, administrative and political.
