Nigerian military on Thursday disclosed that although it is facing constant pressure to compromise the 2023 elections, Nigerians can be rest assured that it would remain neutral.
The Chief of Defence Staff, General Lucky Irabor, disclosed this to journalists at the 61st session of the State House Ministerial Briefing organised by the Presidential Communications Team at the Aso Rock Villa, Abuja.
According the him, military personnel face pressure through inducements, but the armed forces would remain apolitical as it is taking the necessary measures to ensure compliance with the directive of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) to maintain neutrality.
Irabor said personnel are being trained to be more professional even as the rules of engagement have been codified for distribution before, during and after the elections.
