Who you help with your interfering Oga military? No democracy until electoral bill is amended. What will have now is cheat & fraud democracy. Amend constitution, electoral reform, then we can talk about democracy. What an irony Nigeria is a democratic republic yet soldiers are seen everywhere beating innocent citizens by means of oppression,and recently seen taking bribes in motorpark what has never happen before.

CDS_Nig HQNigerianArmy DefenceInfoNG Stop interfering in the civil space. The military is responsible for the mess we're in today. We want you to demilitarize our streets, this is supposed to be a democracy like you opined. Nigerians are not your adversaries. The NA...1/ Because them dey see their own chop well well.

Personal opinion. So Irabor in your mind Nigeria is a democracy? A nation joined together without consultation with the people, ruled by those who are not necessarily voted for but are more violent than their rivals; run with a one sided military constitution is a democracy? I give up honestly!! You will probably be shot with the politicians if it happens. Let us all just pray for peace ✌

by SaharaReporters, New York Jan 14, 2022 The Chief of Defence Staff, General Lucky Irabor, has pledged that the military will support and be loyal to the democratic rule in the country which began since 1999.by SaharaReporters, New York Jan 13, 2022 Operations of the microblogging platform, Twitter, which was suspended over 200 days ago, by the Nigerian government have resumed.by SaharaReporters, New York Jan 13, 2022 The Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, has said that the National Assembly is concerned about the mounting debts of the country resulting from persistent borrowings.by SaharaReporters, New York Jan 13, 2022 Convener of Concerned Nigerians, Deji Adeyanju, has alleged that National leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, will sell the country just like he did with Lagos State if he eventually emerged President in the 2023 general elections.

General Lucky Irabor “Today, I believe that Nigerians are no longer in doubt as to the subordination of the military to civil rule; I believe that no one is in doubt that democracy has come to stay,” he said amid the recent military takeover of government in some African countries. “I believe that no one is in doubt any longer that the current military leadership, and of course, since the democratisation in 1999, that the military is well focused to perform its constitutional roles. It tweeted, “We are pleased that Twitter has been restored for everyone in Nigeria.” Recently, some countries on the continent experienced a forceful takeover of power by the military, including Mali, Guinea, and Sudan.63billion as of Q3 2021. The people of Guinea were taken by shock on September 5, 2021, when army putschists in the country said they had arrested President Alpha Conde and staged a coup. “We are deeply committed to Nigeria, where Twitter is used by people for commerce, cultural engagement, and civic participation. Seven weeks later, Sudanese armed forces detained Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok over his refusal to support their coup on Monday. May such a calamity never befall Nigeria.

Back in the country, General Irabor admitted that some Nigerians might still be struggling with their experience regarding military involvement in politics in the past.” We are pleased that Twitter has been restored for everyone in Nigeria. “Nobody likes taking loans or debt whether as an individual or a country,” the senate president said. He believes those who have very strong reservations in this regard may not actually allow escalation of discussions that have to do with repositioning and bringing the military to full focus in terms of what good it has brought to the nation. Speaking about the significance of the Armed Forces Remembrance Day, the defence chief stressed the need to educate the upcoming generation about the nation’s history “I am sure you also know that issues that have to do with civic responsibilities still require a little push; I am sure you know that literacy level in the nation still requires a little push; and so when you bring these factors among several other things, you know that quite a lot of work needs to be done,” he said. We are deeply committed to Nigeria, where Twitter is used by people for commerce, cultural engagement, and civic participation. “Going forward, I believe that some of these misperceptions that some Nigerians have had with respect to military engagement will begin to change.” Lawan also boasted that the National Assembly under his leadership had stabilised Nigeria’s economy and polity.” . The development was announced by the Chairman Technical Committee, Nigeria-Twitter Engagement and Director-General National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA), Kashifu Inuwa Abdullahi.
