The Chief of Army Staff, Luitenant-General Buratai, has given officers and men of the Nigerian Army with doubtful loyalty to the Federal Government Friday deadline to resign from service.

Buratai gave the ultimatum at an expanded weekly meeting with Principal Staff Officers, General Officers Commanding and some field commanders at the army headquarters in Abuja.

He said, the foundation of military professionalism is discipline and without discipline an army cannot stand.

Buratai also said that the expanded meeting was to review security strategies put in place for the Presidential and National Assembly elections on Saturday.

He recalled that two weeks ago, the strategies were planned in a similar meeting until the elections were rescheduled to Saturday and March 9, from Feb. 16 and March 2.

The army chief decried some politicians’ reaction to President Muhammadu Buhari directive to security agents to deal ruthlessly with ballot box- snatching.
