Charles Nengite, a colonel, at the weekend, beat 380 other postgraduate students to the top position at the U.S. War College (USAWC), Carlisle, Pennsylvania, breaking a 38-year record in the process. It was the best performance by a foreigner in that period.
In a post on the college’s website, the Commandant of the college, Maj.-Gen. William Rapp, described Nengite’s performance as arguably one of the best in the international fellows programmes at the USAWC.
Col. Nengite bagged six awards for outstanding performance in different courses. Pres. Buhari is also an alumnus of the college.
