Discharge your constitutional duties firmly – COAS


The Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt.-Gen. Faruk Yahaya, has urged troops of the Nigerian Army to remain resolute and focused in the discharge of their constitutional mandate.

The Director, Army Public Relations, Brig.-Gen. Onyema Nwachukwu, in a statement on Wednesday, said the COAS made the call while addressing troops of 2 Brigade in Uyo, Akwa Ibom.

The Army chief called on officers and soldiers to avoid being dragged into any form of politicking during electoral activities soon to commence around the country.

He said the role of troops during elections was that of supporting the Nigeria Police, the lead agency in the security architecture of elections.

Yahaya also called on the troops to protect national economic assets by checking the activities of criminals and economic saboteurs bent on sabotaging the nation’s economy.

He assured the troops that their administrative and operational challenges would receive due and prompt attention, adding that the welfare of personnel was paramount in his command.
