Some retired military personnel in the Nigerian military has warned Nigerians calling on the Armed Forces to take over power in the country to stop such call, noting that democracy was the best style of governance for the nation.
Recall that the Defence Headquarters had in a statement by the Director, Defence Information, Brig. Gen. Tukur Gusau, on Friday night, described the request as wicked and unpatriotic.
Reacting to the calls for a military takeover, Maj. Gen. Ishola Williams (retd.), said the military should disregard the calls and cease making statements on the matter.
Also speaking, a retired captain from the United States of America Army, Bishop Johnson, said he could not fathom why people were calling for a military takeover, given that there were many ‘sacrifices’ for Nigeria to achieve democratic rule in 1999.
