Ø Says ‘I was 50 and a General before I started travelling out’
The Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai, has dismissed calls on the international community to impose a travel ban on top military officers over alleged violation of human rights of some Nigerians during the #EndSARS protest.
Buratai made this known yesterday in Abuja, during a meeting with the General Officers Commanding, (GOC)’s, of the Divisions and Operation Commanders of the Nigerian Army over the #EndSARS protests.
Emerging out of the closed-door meeting, Buratai assured that, “subversive elements, detractors and other enemies of this great nation will not achieve their aims and objectives of destabilisation”.
The Army Chief said: “Criminal elements are threatening us with a travel ban, but we are not worried because we must remain in this country to make it better. The first time I travelled outside of this country, I was already 50 years and a General, so I don’t mind if I live the rest of my life here”.
He assured that the Nigerian Army is determined to ensure democratic stability in Nigeria. The best system of governance is democracy and we must all ensure that Nigeria’s democracy remains stable and steady.
