The Nigerian Army has vowed not to interfere in politics as it is only focused on carrying out its constitutional roles as professionally as possible.
Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, made this known on Wednesday.
Buratai gave the assurance after commissioning a water treatment plant built by the engineering corps of the 82 Division of the Nigerian Army, Enugu at Abakpa barracks in Enugu.
I want to assure that the Nigerian Army will remain apolitical and responsive in the discharge of its constitutional role.
Prominent Nigerians in attendance were the governors of Enugu and Ebonyi states, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi and Dave Umahi.
Speaking on the project, Buratai expressed the hope that the water treatment plant would help to address water scarcity in Enugu.
On his part, Governor Ugwuanyi lauded the army for helping to provide security in Enugu.
He noted that Enugu’s image as a peaceful state was due to the role of the army and other security agencies.
