Wike To Burutai: Stop deploying soldiers to politicians

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike on Wednesday lacerated the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai on his repeated assertions that some politicians are approaching military officers for political reasons.

 

“Who are those approving battalions of soldiers to politicians? If they don’t want soldiers to follow politicians, they should stop giving soldiers to politicians.

“It is only in Nigeria that soldiers follow politicians. They should stop soldiers from being security details to politicians. Somebody comes home and they will give him battalions of soldiers and they say soldiers should not hobnob with politicians. “All over the world, it is only the commander-in-chief that is allowed to use soldiers. But here, you see soldiers following politicians everywhere.”

Wike told the Army chief to stop whining and get to work on doing the right things.
