The Nigerian military has said that politicians are inducing its personnel, with a view to using them to derail the 2023 general election.
General Lucky ‘Irabor, the chief of defence staff sated this at a ministerial media briefing in Abuja.
Irabor adds the military would rather do President Muhammadu Buhari’s bidding on having a free and fair election.
He explains that the military is re-training its personnel for professionalism. Irabor said the rules of engagement before, during and after the elections have been codified and distributed to officers and men of the military.
The CDS insists that the military is neutral and apolitical.
