Breaking: Buratai threaten to flush out protesting soldiers unwilling to fight B/Haram
I observed how the attitude of quite a few bad eggs among us, whose commitment to our national/military cause has waned and led to setbacks in our operations.
The Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, has warned that all personnel of the Nigerian Army who are unwillingly to fight Boko Haram terrorists in the north east would be flushed out.
The Nation reports that Buratai said as an advocate of transformational leadership, he would not wait for such soldiers to get out of the way of the fight against insurgency in Nigeria.
A statement released by the Army spokesperson, Sagir Musa, said Buratai made the remark at the closing ceremony of Army Headquarters Transformational leadership workshop in Abuja.
According to Musa, a Nigerian Army colonel, the Chief of Army Staff said the Army is working to evolve and institutionalize formal mentoring frameworks to compliment the informal system.
Buratai said: “The NA is already working to evolve and institutionalize formal mentoring frameworks to compliment the informal system.”
“It is with a great sense of accomplishment that I address this distinguished audience to mark the successful conclusion of the maiden Army Headquarters Transformational Leadership Workshop 2019.
“In my opening remarks, I observed how the attitude of quite a few bad eggs among us, whose commitment to our national/military cause has waned and led to setbacks in our operations. I am glad that this workshop has clearly shown to everyone that we have great reasons to be proud of our nation,” Buratai said.
The Army Chief said the long standing culture of service, sacrifice and honour in the Nigerian Army has been reaffirmed in the various life lessons and examples by personnel – serving, retired or late – whose stories were highlighted during the workshop.
He said the culture should reinvigorate and motivate the participants as transformational leaders for selfless service to the nation.
