Yoruba Youths, CSOs Commend Military, Buratai’s Transparency In Fight Against Boko Haram
The National Committee of Yoruba Youth (NCYY) and other 10 Civil Society organisations, have commended the fiscal transparency and accountability policy of the Nigerian Army, under the leadership of its Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai.
After a conference, yesterday in Lagos, the forum through its spokesman, Comrade Odeyemi Oladimeji, condemned what it called the latest politically motivated accusations of shortchanging of Military personnel serving in the Boko Haram ravaged North East region of the country, by the leadership of the Nigerian Army.
Oladimeji said: “At no time in our history, has the Army leadership, shown more commitment to the sustenance of a policy of accountability, prudence and transparency, than it is now been seen under the leadership of General Tukur Buratai.” Odeyemi noted that this is not the first time that these detractors and those he tagged as Boko Haram sympathizers will be coming out with such false accusations against the Nigerian Army leadership.
According to him, the youth group is becoming worried about the consequences of such campaign of calumny, on the morale of “our patriotic Soldiers, who are fighting day and night to restore law and order in the North East and the nation.”
He said: “As a result of the desperation of these enemies of the significant gains, so far made in the war against insurgency in Nigeria, by the Nigerian Army under the leadership of Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, we have resolved as patriotic Nigerians to embark on a National Advocacy to sensitize Nigerians about the achievements of the Nigerian Military particularly the Army under its current leadership, as a way of mobilising their support, towards achieving victory in the war on terror and the need to encourage our soldiers, who
have continued to fight hard, to protect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of our nation.”
