The National Committee of Yoruba Youth has commended the Nigerian Army for the implementation of the approved Order of Battle 2016, with the establishment of Fort Muhammadu Buhari Forward Operation Base, an Army Unit in Daura, Katsina State.
The group in a statement issued on Thursday and signed by its President, Comrade Odeyemi Oladimeji, said the establishment of the Army unit will further enhance security in the country, particularly in the Northern part, where there have been growing security concerns, owning to the activities of armed gangs, Cattle rustlers and some remnants of the Boko Haram insurgents, who might desperately be working their ways, back into the society.
The group also applauded what it described as the unequaled patriotism of the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, over his recent revelations, that some politically exposed Nigerians are planning to infiltrate the Army, in order to truncate the nation’s democracy.
“We salute the sense of patriotism of the Chief of Army Staff and the entire Army leadership, for their sense of patriotism and commitment to the sustenance of democracy in Nigeria. Their recent revelation has strengthened our beliefs, as Nigerians, that Nigeria is safe hands and the military should no longer be seen as a threat to our democracy.”
The group also admonish Nigerians to disregard the mischief that some persons have tried to attach to the clarion alert by General Buratai, stating that Nigerians must collectively arise to sustain the gains, that Nigeria has made under democracy, particularly the untiring commitments of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, towards restoring Nigeria back to the path of greatness
