The Nigerian Army remains the nation’s bastion of unity, hence, officers and men have been charged to always remain apolitical.
Minister of Defence, Major General Bashir Salihi Magashi (rtd), gave the charge in his remarks, at the Chief of Army Staff Annual Conference 2019 in Kaduna on Tuesday.
“Nigerian Army remains bastion of unity and most remain apolitical towards supporting Nigeria’s democracy,” he said.
Speaking further, he said the Nigerian Army has ensured the country’s territorial integrity, a feat they deserve to be praised for.
He congratulated Chief Of Army Staff, Army officers and men for a successful operational year 2019.
“I commend you for your sacrifices and commitment to the country.
“Some have paid the supreme price, they will always be remembered and families taken care of. Those injured are ensured of best medical care,” he assured.
