We are better off under Democracy~Nigerian Military

The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) says the call for the military to interfere in the nation’s democracy is highly unpatriotic and wicked.⁣

A statement by the Director Defence Information, Brig.-Gen. Tukur Gusau on Friday in Abuja, said it was an attempt by unpatriotic elements to distract the military from performing its constitutional responsibilities.⁣

Gusau said the DHQ frowned at the report being circulated online about welfare issues in the Armed Forces of Nigeria.⁣

He said the leadership of the armed forces has given priority to welfare of its personnel and will continue to do so.⁣

“The military hierarchy detests any attempt by any individual or group to instigate the law abiding military to embark on any unconstitutional change of government in the country.⁣

“We wish to state unequivocally that the military is happy and better under democracy and will not get involved in any act to sabotage the hard-earned democracy in our country.⁣

“The armed forces under the leadership of Gen. Christopher Musa is determined to ensure its complete subordination to constitutional authority under President Bola Tinubu.⁣

“We will not be distracted from these roles that are well defined in the 1999 constitution (as amended),” he said.⁣
