The genuine soldiers in the Nigerian Armed Forces’ loyalty and commitment is to Nigerians and the sovereignty of the Nigeria state.
Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai in a statement made available this morning through the army spokesman said the loyalty and commitment of the Nigerian Army is to the president.
This is annoying. This explain why the armed forces is failing in the fight against Boko Haram, banditry and other form of numerous killings going on across the country.
The Nigerian army under Buratai only have the power, tactics and capacity to kill innocent peaceful protesters. Boko Haram kills Nigerian soldiers almost every day since Buratai became chief of army staff.
The president is the commander-in-chief of the Nigerian Armed Forces does not make him the interest the Nigerian soldiers are expected to protect.
The president and the entire member of the armed forces are loyal to Nigerians. Men of the Nigerian Armed Forces only take order from the president.
The constitution of Nigeria is very clear, every public servant including the Nigerian army is loyal and committed to the Nigeria state. Not to any office. Or individual.
The civilian and non civilian army protesting against bad government and worsening living condition in Nigeria; will resist the criminal few in the armed forces. Buratai should take note.
The criminals in the Nigerian Armed Forces are ready to protect the interests of the president against the interests of the state.
The criminals betrayed public trust because of the numerous benefits they get from the office of the president.
For instance, President Buhari budgeted N133.208 billion to pay the salary and wages of the men of the Nigerian Army. Buhari again budgeted almost 300 percent of that same amount as special allowance under the army.
Buhari budgeted N327.749 billion as special allowance under the army.
Only few people mostly the criminals in an organization benefit special allowance. What majority benefit is their salary and wages.
Those that will eat the N327.749 billion may not even know how the Boko Haram terrain look like.
The big Ogas and the few people in their good book are the people that will benefit the special allowance.
Nigeria is a country where one staff will go for training repeatedly more than 20 times in a unit where several others have not travel for years for training or ask to carry out special assignment since they were employed.
They are always at the war front doing the work while the criminal few in Nigerian Army are using their names to steal billion through special allowance arrangement.
This explain why some soldiers escorting their boss who stole N400 million double cross the criminal and whisked away with the money during Buhari regime.
The N400 million is obviously money meant as special allowance for Nigerian soldiers. One criminal stole such amount.
Special allowance should be reduced by 85 percent.
Salary and wages which majority benefit should be increased by 25 percent.
The figure, 10 percent for increment of salary and wages across board. The remaining 15 percent for the creation of new employment for Nigerians.
