Chief of Defense Staff (CDS) Gen. Lucky Irabor yesterday assured Nigerians that the armed forces will not betray public trust in their resolve to defend democracy.
The CDS restated the determination of the military to resist all pressures to compromise next year’s general election.
According to him, security agencies are constantly under pressure to compromise the electoral process, but the military has chosen to stay neutral.
Gen. Irabor spoke at this week’s edition of the ministerial briefing, organised by the Presidential Communication Team at the Presidential Villa Abuja.
Noting that pressure come through inducements, the CDS said necessary measures have been put in place to ensure that the military obey President Muhammadu Buhari’s directive to maintain neutrality.
