The Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai, has warned all Army Generals against staging any coup to remove President Muhammadu Buhari from Office before his tenure expires in 2023,
Buratai vowed that the Nigerian Army will never tolerate any Agent of destabilisation bent on scuttling the current democratic dispensation.
He said this as the Army decorated 39 newly promoted Major-Generals.
His words: “Democracy has come to stay. We will not tolerate any Agent of destabilisation. The years of Military misadventure in politics have never carried us anywhere. It is over.”
Buratai also warned against lobbying with Politicians for appointments.
He stated: “Do not hobnob with Politicians. At this rank of Two-star Generals, if you want to lobby for an appointment, lobby the Chief of Army Staff and you can only do this through hard work, discipline and loyalty.
“All our eyes are on you.”
