Kwara Governor Urges Nigeria Army To Remain Loyal To Democracy


Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara State, has admonished military personnel in various offices to prioritise loyalty to Nigeria’s unity and democracy.

Mr AbdulRazaq advised the military to note that democracy remains key for Nigeria as a country, which forms a part of the global village.

The governor gave the advice on Tuesday while speaking at the 45 Basic Medical Qualifying Course, Nigerian Navy College of Health Sciences, in Offa, headquarters of the Offa LGA.

Mr AbdulRazaq noted that Nigeria cannot be isolated from the larger space, adding that loyalty to constituted authorities must be unadulterated as discipline is the bedrock of the military.

Represented by Deputy Governor Kayode Alabi, the governor urged the graduands to exhibit deep respect for the rule of law and fundamental human rights.

The governor also urged military personnel to shun partisan politics and all acts prejudicial to the interest of the service and the nation.

“As you celebrate today, all graduands must bear in mind that a lot has been invested in your training by the college, the Nigerian Navy and by extension, our dear country, Nigeria,” stated Mr AbdulRazaq. “I am also mindful of the fact that the college has continued to update its course contents and programmes in line with global practices.”

The Kwara governor added, “All these efforts should be evident henceforth in the discharge of your duties as naval personnel and medical professionals.”

Mr AbdulRazaq, however, commended the commandant, instructors and entire college staff who have put in their best to improve the welfare and infrastructure in the college, within the limits of available scarce resources.

The governor stated that the Kwara government would support the college as deemed necessary to meet its requirements for both training and operations.
