The Army Officers Campaigning for Buhari.

The Nigerian Army has dissociated self from Soldiers seen recently celebrating and endorsing President Muhammadu Buhari’s second bid as president.

           
The Army Ag. Director for Public Relations, Colonel Sagir Musa says that the attention of the Nigerian Army (NA) has been drawn to a picture of four armed men dressed in what looks like military camouflage in a 4 x 4 finger sign supposedly connoting a campaign symbol of a political party (APC) which is against the rules and regulations of the NA.

The Nigerian Army wishes to dissociate itself from the picture even as it has commenced immediate investigation with the view to ascertain the source and authenticity of the pictures and the "soldiers' involved.

If the outcome of the investigation confirms this to be true, appropriate sanctions would be provided.

The Nigerian Army of today under the command of Lt Gen Tukur Yusuf Buratai do not condone or encourage indiscipline and any form of professional misconduct, as on many occasions, the Chief of Army Staff has made it strongly clear that Army personnel will remain neutral, totally apolitical and will not compromise its constitutional roles under any guise.
