Nigerian military states position on call to take over power from Buhari
The Defence Headquarters has responded to the advice to President Muhammadu Buhari to hand over power to the Nigerian military.

Robert Clarke, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) demanded that the military should control the government temporarily and restructure Nigeria.

A statement by Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu, Director of Defence Information, said the Armed Forces of Nigeria remain fully committed to the present administration and all associated democratic institutions.

The spokesman noted that the military shall continue to remain apolitical, subordinate to the civil authority, firmly loyal to the Commander-in-Chief, President Buhari and the 1999 Constitution as amended.

Nwachukwu added that the military will continue to discharge its responsibilities professionally, protect the country’s democracy, defend the territorial integrity of the country and protect of lives and properties of citizens.

The statement warned politicians who nurse the inordinate ambition to rule this country outside the ballot box to banish such thoughts, assuring that the military under the current leadership remains resolute in the defence of Nigeria’s democracy and its growth.

“We also wish to remind all military personnel that it is reasonable to even contemplate this illegality. The full wrath of the law will be brought to bear on any personnel found to collude with people having such an agenda.

“The current security challenges are not insurmountable. The Armed Forces of Nigeria in partnership with other security Agencies are working assiduously to ameliorate the challenge. Nigeria will know peace again”, it read.
