President Bola Tinubu has sympathized with the Kale family, the Nigerian Army, and the society of medical practitioners in Nigeria on the passing of Major-General Aderonke Kale (Rtd), mni.

The late Kale, who passed away at 84, is widely acknowledged to be the first female Major-General in the Nigerian Army and the first female Commander of the Nigerian Army Medical Corps. She retired from the Nigerian Army in 1997.

The President described Major-General Kale as a pace-setter and her death as a painful loss to the country.

“Major-General Aderonke Kale was a pioneer in her field. She embodied the courage, professionalism, capacity, and resilience of the Nigerian woman. She thrived and conquered where many feared to tread. She was a towering figure; an inimitible role model,” the President said.

President Tinubu prayed for the repose of the soul of the late officer and encouraged her beloved family to take solace in the peerless legacy she left behind.

Major-General Kale was a recipient of many awards for her contributions to the field of medicine. She was also a philanthropist who positively impacted many lives.
