Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike yesterday alleged that the military had lost its integrity because of some unprofessional personnel.
He spoke at an inter-denominational Church Service marking the 2020 Armed Forces Remembrance Day Celebration at the Saint Peter’s Anglican Church, Rumuepirikom.
“I am disturbed that the Nigerian military doesn’t hold mean anything to anyone anymore. If you go around Nigeria, you will see that nobody respects their uniform anymore.
“This is because of some unprofessional ones among them who go about causing harm and aiding corruption while wearing their uniform.”
“Those who come to rig election or kill Rivers people, Heaven will never remember them,” he said.
He also suggested that a reward system be put in place to help soldiers get their moralities back.
Wike urged members of the Armed Forces to choose the right path in the interest of Nigeria. He commended the Armed Forces for their roles in preserving the unity of the country, saying if not for their roles, kidnappers, cultists, insurgents and armed robbers would have taken over the country.
