Buratai, who spoke during the decoration of 39 newly promoted major generals on Friday, said Democracy has come to stay and the Nigerian Army would not tolerate any plot to scuttle the current democratic dispensation.

Disclosing that the Army hierarchy was aware that some of the newly decorated generals were being approached, Buratai said they must act within the confines of the constitution.

“Democracy has come to stay. We will not tolerate any agent of destabilisation. The years of military misadventure in politics have never carried us anywhere. It is over.”

“Do not hobnob with politicians. At this rank of two-star generals, do not lobby for appointment. If you want to lobby for appointment, lobby the Chief of Army Staff and you can only do this through hard work, discipline and loyalty.

“The crop of officers decorated will never be dragged into any interest that is contrary to the sustenance of democracy in our nation.

“All our eyes are on you. We know there are several moves to get your attention. You must make sure that whatever you are doing, and when some persons approach you, you must act within the confines of the constitution.” he said.

KanyiDaily recalls that Burutai had also ordered Nigerian soldiers to treat all individuals in the northeast as Boko Haram suspects until properly identified.
