Kogi, Bayelsa election,: Group warns army chief against deployment of soldiers

A political pressure group under the umbrella of Concerned Nigerians, has called on the Chief of Army Staff, Lt General Tukur Yusuf Buratai to frustrate any plan to deploy soldiers for the governorship poll in Kogi and Beyelsa States, stating that deployment of soldiers to the states will amount to interference in the process.
Speaking through the convener of the group who is also indigent of Kogi State, Comrade Deji Adeyanju, in a letter titled,  "Kogi and Bayelsa: An Urgent Appeal, the group stated that the murky water of Nigerian politics has continued to undermine the intelligence of the Nigerian Army for elections and has tainted the solid professional reputation of the Nigerian Army, built over the decades with enormous sacrifices, pains, sweats, tears and blood, while serving national, regional and global interests.
  In his words, 'you will recall that for this singular reason, you once set up a panel to investigate the conduct of soldiers during the 2014 governorship election in which some officers were found wanting and sanctioned. We had expected that that singular action was going to stop the use of Army for elections. But it is never too late for our Army to fully return to the path of professionalism and regain the trust of Nigerians.
"As we approach the Kogi and Bayelsa States gubernatorial elections, we believe it is paramount to remind the Nigerian Army that its involvement in the 2019 general elections left indelible scars and traumas in the hearts of most Nigerians. Reports by local and international observers documented how the deployment and involvement of the Nigerian Army in the elections led to widespread voter intimidation, voter apathy, and electoral violence.
In the letter jointly signed by Ariyo Dare-Atoye of the Coalition In Defence of Nigeria Democracy and Constitution, Adeyanju added that it is important to remind the Nigerian Army that it has been helped to ward off pressure being mounted by politicians to get involved in our elections, with several court judgements, which between 2003 and 2015 emphatically declared the deployment of soldiers during elections in Nigeria as completely unconstitutional and illegal.
It is against this background that we wish to strongly urge the Nigerian Army to jettison all plans to deploy soldiers for the forthcoming Kogi and Bayelsa States governorship elections. This should mark a turning point for the Army to regain the trust of Nigerians.
"We believe that history will look favourably on the Nigerian Army if it chooses to honour the Nigerian constitution by refusing to be a tool in the hands of politicians, and refusing to deploy our gallant troops during the forthcoming governorship elections. The Army is already overstretched with several internal operations and it should be saved from political distractions. The Police are adequately prepared to deploy officers for this election as they did during the general elections. If the police could adequately deploy its officers to 36 States during the elections, it won't have any challenges in just two states - Kogi and Bayelsa. 
"Our hope and prayer is that the Almighty God will continue to strengthen our gallant troops to faithfully and courageously serve Nigerians, and defend our country. And we hope that you will consider our urgent appeal as the concerns of Nigerians who want the Nigerian Army to return to the path of global reckoning.
