Why Buhari treating Nigerian soldiers like animals – Fani-Kayode

Why Buhari treating Nigerian soldiers like animals – Fani-Kayode

Former Minister of Aviation and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic
Party, PDP, Femi Fani-Kayode, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of
treating Nigerian soldiers like animals.

According to him, the  president can not afford medical care and good salary payment for the people protecting the nation.

A lot of Nigerian soldiers have died in the fight of Boko haram and other terro group in the country but Buhari has never for one day show concerned or pay condulence visit to the families of those dead soldiers; we don't need a president who does't care for people of the this ountry especially those risking their lives to protect this nation; he added.

Fani-Kayode said Buhari had no respect for the Nigerian troops and
had refused to pay the troops who had been fighting in the volatile
north region their benefits.

He was reacting to the protest staged on Sunday by soldiers of the
Special Strike Forces deployed in Operation Lafiya Dole against their
posting to Marte, a Local Government Area (LGA) in Northern Borno State.

The former minister said, “Yesterday soldiers threatened to shoot
their superior officers in Maiduguri. This was because they were being
sent to certain death at the frontline after being posted to Maiduguri
for four years without seeing their families or getting all their
benefits. This is sad and unfair.

“Our soldiers deserve better. They must be treated with fairness,
compassion, decency and respect. They must be paid their salaries and
allowances when due and they must be honored for the sacrifices that
they are making.

“They must not be treated like animals or, when killed, they must not be buried in secret mass graves like dogs.

“Nations and leaders are meant to honor their soldiers but here we
humiliate, shame and disgrace them. This is unacceptable. Buhari has no
respect for the military. He only uses them to intimidate innocent
Nigerians and crush his enemies.”
