Lt. General Tukur Yusuf Buratai, the Army Chief of Staff, has cautioned generals against staging any coup in the country.
Speaking on Friday, during the decoration of 39 newly promoted Major Generals, Buratai pledged that the Nigerian Army will never tolerate any agent of destabilization bent on scuttling the current democratic dispensation.
He said, “Democracy has come to stay. We will not tolerate any agent of destabilization. The years of military misadventure in politics have never carried us anywhere. It is over.”
Also, Buratai warned against lobbying with politicians for appointments.
“Do not hobnob with politicians. At this rank of two-star generals, if you want to lobby for an appointment, lobby the Chief of Army Staff and you can only do this through hard work, discipline and loyalty.
“All our eyes are on you,” he added.
