Lt. General Tukur Buratai, the Chief of Army Staff, Wednesday, picked hole on the statement of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP),  asking the Nigerian Army to disregard President Muhammadu Buhari’s directive that they deal ruthlessly with ballot box snatchers in the coming general elections.

Buratai described Atiku’s statement as most unfortunate given that he was in the highest level of government in the country before and knows fully that the Nigerian Army in particular and the military, in general, are meant to obey the orders of the Commander-In-Chief of the Nigerian Armed Forces to the latter,

Hence, Buratai is asking the former Vice President not only to withdraw the statement but to also apologise for attempting to invite the Army against what he termed as “constituted authority.”
