Nigerian Military Pledges Loyalty To The Constitution, Warn Personnel of Implication of Treasonable Offence

May 04 04:39 2021

The military high command has pledged its loyalty to the supremacy of the country’s constitution and the elected government of the day. It also reminded all military personnel of the implications of contemplating treason.

The warned that the full wrath of the law will be brought to bear on any personnel found to collude with people having such agenda. 

The authority said the current security challenges facing the country are not insurmountable. The Armed Forces said they are working in partnership with other security Agencies to ameliorate the challenge and believed that Nigeria will know peace again.

The authority was reacting to a statement made by one Robert Clark SAN, suggesting that current political leadership should hand over power to the military for the purpose of restructuring.

The Nigerian Military through a release by its Spokesman Brig-Gen Onyenma Nwachukwu distanced itself from such anti-democratic utterance and position. It stated categorically that the Armed Forces of Nigeria remain fully committed to the present Administration and all associated democratic institutions.

“We shall continue to remain apolitical, subordinate to the Civil Authority, firmly loyal to the President, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Mohammadu Buhari and the 1999 Constitution as Amended. We shall continue to discharge our constitutional responsibilities professionally, especially in protecting the country’s democracy, defence of the territorial integrity of the country as well as protection of lives and properties of citizens”. 

 The Military High Command however warned some misguided politicians who nurse the inordinate ambition to rule the country outside the ballot box to banish such thoughts as the military under the current leadership remains resolute in the Defence of Nigeria’s Democracy and its growth.
