By Eunice Peter

The Chief of Army Staff, Lt. General Tukur Yusuf Buratai, has warned generals against staging any coup.

Buratai gave the warning on Friday in Abuja as the Army decorated 39 newly promoted Major Generals.

He vowed that the Nigerian Army will not tolerate any agent of destabilization bent on scuttling the current democratic dispensation in the country.

Buratai said, “Democracy has come to stay in Nigeria and we will not tolerate any agent of destabilization. The years of military misadventure in politics have never carried us anywhere. It is over”

The Chief of Army staff also warned against lobbying with politicians for appointments.

“Do not hobnob with politicians. At this rank of two-star generals, if you want to lobby for an appointment, lobby the Chief of Army Staff and you can only do this through hard work, discipline and loyalty. All our eyes are on you,” he said.
