FFK reacts to Soldiers’ Protest in Borno says Buhari has no respect for the military


Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, this morning reacted to reports of Nigerian soldiers who protested against their transfer from Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state to another local government last night. The soldiers who reportedly shot indiscriminately into the air, said they should be sent back to thier families instead of another peace keeping mission after they spending four years already in Maidufuri.


Taking to his Facebook page to react, FFK wrote

”Yesterday soldiers threatened to shoot their superior officers in Maiduguri. This was because they were being sent to certain death at the frontline after being posted to Maiduguri for four years without seeing their families or getting all their benefits. This is sad and unfair.

Our soldiers deserve better. They must be treated with fairness, compassion, decency and respect. They must be paid their salaries and allowances when due and they must be honored for the sacrifices that they are making.

They must not be treated like animals or, when killed, they must not be buried in secret mass graves like dogs.

Nations and leaders are meant to honor their soldiers but here we humiliate, shame and disgrace them. This is unacceptable. Buhari has no respect for the military. He only uses them to intimidate innocent Nigerians and crush his enemies”
