Army Will Defend Nigeria's Democracy At All Costs - COAS by phylshan: 9:54pm On Aug 05, 2023
The Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Taoreed Lagbaja, has declared that the Nigerian military will always defend the nation’s democracy at all costs using every constitutional means.

Lt. General Lagbaja spoke at the Passing Out Parade of officers of Executive Commission Course One of the Army School of Infantry, Jaji, Kaduna State, on Saturday.

“He emphasized that the desire of every Nigerian is a flourishing, uninterrupted constitutional democratic governance, that promotes national values and the interest of every well-meaning Nigerian, irrespective of ethnic or religious affiliation,” the Director, Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu, said in a statement.

Neighbouring Niger Republic became the latest West African country to experience a military coup.

He is assuring of the unalloyed loyalty and commitment of officers and soldiers of the Nigerian Army to stoutly defend the nation’s territorial integrity and ensure internal security against non-state actors such as Boko Haram terrorists, bandits, Indigenous People of Biafra (POB) and other criminal elements.

The COAS, however, warned that the activities of Boko Haram and Islamic State West Africa Province terrorist groups in the North East, kidnappings and banditry in the North West and North Central as well as secessionist agitations by IPOB in the South East could undermine the nation’s cherished corporate existence and national security if they not immediately nipped in the bud.

The Army chief is asking the graduating officers to get ready for work.


According to the Army chief, the graduating officers must therefore brace up for the arduous task ahead. He said most of them will be deployed to the battlefields where their services are highly needed to surmount all security threats.

He is also warning the officers against indulging in any form of insubordination and to remain apolitical in discharging their constitutional duties of protecting their fatherland.

“I, therefore, charge all Nigerian Army personnel to be proud champions of our flourishing democracy and remain apolitical in discharging their constitutional duties,” the COAS added.

Ipob miscreants will be dealt with.

They are coup plotters

They constantly want the downfall of our beloved country.

They are delighted in hearing bad news about Nigeria.

They want Nigeria to burn down.

Every good news about Nigeria makes them sad.

They address Nigeria as ZOO but yet they want to sit in Aso Rock.

Their ill-manners have already ruined their chances of producing a president.

When it's 2095 and their great great great grandchildren start asking them why they never in the history of Nigeria produced a president, dem go explain tire, no evidence

Don’t bother yourself.

He will be dealt with just like Nnamdi Kanu is being dealt with now and nothing the chest beaters are going to do.

Nnamdi Kanu will be killed, Obi will be jailed, the chest beaters will do nothing.

If they do anyhow we won’t even wait for the government to deal with them. We will start flogging them like it was done in Akure and Lagos.

Good military rule is superior to bad civilian rule, which Nigeria currently has.

Stop this nonsense!
You are not a child.
Stop deliberately inciting people.

Also, be careful how you accuse the innocent, because in life, whatever you give will return to you in manifolds.
Life is not a joke.

If a coup wants to happen COAS will not know shit until the did is done.

All it takes is a regiment with their commander to give the order. It could be a bloodless parlace coup or very nasty, shit happens.
