The Guardian (Nigeria) - - NEWS - From Sax­one Akhaine, Kaduna

PRES­I­DENT Muham­madu Buhari has tasked the mil­i­tary to reded­i­cate it­self to democ­racy in the coun­try, by de­fend­ing the nation’s unity and ter­ri­to­rial in­tegrity.

Buhari gave the charge dur­ing the pass­ing out pa­rade of the com­bined cadets of 64 and 65 reg­u­lar cour­ses of the Nige­rian De­fence Acad­emy (NDA), yes­ter­day.

Rep­re­sented by the Vice Pres­i­dent, Pro­fes­sor Yemi Os­in­bajo, the Pres­i­dent said there is need for the mil­i­tary to en­gage all the forces of ter­ror­ism con­fronting the nation for rea­son of de­fend­ing democ­racy and Nige­ria’s ter­ri­to­rial in­tegrity. He re­minded the 689 of­fi­cer cadets; that “the nation has of­fered you its best in train­ing and will con­tinue to do so and you have the obli­ga­tion to com­mit your­self to the never-end­ing task of nation-build­ing, es­pe­cially at a time like this when our coun­try is ur­gently in need of peace, unity and co­he­sion.”
