The Nigerian military authority has declared those who have been calling for military coup in Nigeria as evils.
The Chief of Defence Staff, General Christopher Musa, on behalf of the military, declared: “anybody calling for anything other than democracy is evil and does not wish us well.”
He stressed that Nigeria is better under democracy than any other system of governance.
The General, who spoke during his operational visit and inauguration of facilities at Headquarters 6 Division of the Nigeria Army, in Port Harcourt yesterday, February 22, emphasised that the country’s democracy is achieved through great efforts.
According to him, insinuations from some quarters for the military intervention in the current democratic system portray lack of”patriotism.
“People making such calls for a military takeover do not love Nigeria.
“We want to make it clear that the Armed Forces of Nigeria is here to protect democracy.
“We all want democracy; we do better during democracy, and so, the armed forces will continue to support democracy.”
He insisted that those who are advocating a coup d’état are adversaries, who do not have the country’s best interests at heart.
“We can see that with democracy a lot of things are happening in Nigeria. Yes, we are going through a trying period, but in life, nothing is 100 per cent.
“Everybody (country) went through trying periods, and it is what you do with them (that matters).”
The army chief said that the government has initiated actionable measures to address the array of challenges facing Nigerians.
He emphasized that instead of calling for a military takeover, all citizens should rally behind the government to resolve the present circumstances.
“It is when you go through difficulties, and you come out of it better, that you will truly appreciate what it is to build a nation.
“The country is going through its trying period, but I can assure Nigerians that the situation will get better.
“All we need is to unite and work together to defeat enemies of the government and country, those who do not want us to succeed.”
General Musa pledged the military’s loyalty to the government,adding the armed forces would preserve peace and order in the country.
