2019: Stop romancing politicians – Buratai warns soldiers

Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, has once again warned Army personnel to steer clear from politics.
Buratai spoke when he declared open the 18th Conflict Management and Peace Support Seminar of the Nigerian Army College of Logistics (NACOL), in Lagos on Monday.
He called on commanders of the force, at all levels, to provide the requisite leadership and ensure their personnel are reminded to uphold military professionalism.
Recall that Buratai had ordered the establishment of standing court martial to try any officers who show partisanship.
The army chief, who was represented by the Chief of Army Standard and Evaluation, Major General Adekunle Shodunke, said: “Commanders, at all levels, must ensure their personnel are apolitical, uphold the tenets of military professionalism and be guided by the provision of the constitution.”
He bemoaned the clash between herdsmen and farmers in the Middle Belt areas of the country, which had led to lost of lives and valuables, assuring that the army willcontinue to play its role in resolving the conflict and put in place measures for the safe return of displaced farmers to their homes and farmlands.
