The Nigerian Army has told the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, to look elsewhere to be relevant rather than play politics with the Nigerian Army.
The Army told him sternly to stop politicising the military and its operations.
The Army issued the warning via its official twitter handle, @HQNigerianArmy.
“Gov Ayodele Fayose should stop politicizing the military [and] military OPs, seek other avenues for your relevance. The Army today is not corrupt”, said the post.
The Army’s warning follows a statement credited to the Governor on Wednesday.
Fayose, through his spokesman, Lere Olayinka had said the United States “Country Report on Terrorism 2016 proves that the military was corrupt.
“This report by the US Government has further lent credence to earlier revelation by the Transparency International that despite President Muhammadu Buhari government’s anti-corruption fight, corruption in the military is weakening Nigeria’s efforts to battle Boko Haram,” the Governor said through his spokesman.
