Politicians Warned Against Wearing Military  Uniforms For Campaign Posters

 
The Defence Headquarters, DHQ  has  noticed with dismay that some  politicians have formed the habit of  wearing military uniforms and accoutrements for electioneering campaign posters.

 
The Acting Director Defence Information, Air Commodore Wap Maigida said that “the campaign posters of some Governors, dressed in military camouflage uniforms, are displayed in noticeable  areas in their respective states”.

 
 
Maigida said “this is manifestly illegal and an abuse of the privilege of allowing civilians  wear military uniforms during military training exercises”.

 
 
According to him, it is necessary to restate that the Armed Forces of Nigeria, as a professional institution, remains  apolitical and, as such,  would not want to be dragged into any form of political bias.

 
He noted that it is important to advise politicians and  others to desist from the use of military uniforms and accoutrements for political events and other engagements henceforth.

 
“Please note,  anyone found culpable in  this regard would be liable to prosecution,” he said.
