Nothing Will Hinder 2023 Elections – Defence Chief, Irabor Assures
The Chief of Defence Staff, General Lucky Irabor has stated that the Nigerian military will make sure the forthcoming 2023 general elections are a success.
Irabor spoke during a press briefing in Abuja on Tuesday at the defense headquarters.
He said the military remained unshaken with its commitment to protecting the lives of citizens and the democratic ideals in the country.
He assured that his men will do everything possible to ensure that nothing stops the poll from holding.
This comes as some people have expressed apprehension over the conduct of the 2023 polls due to insecurity.
However, Irabor, on Tuesday reiterated the military’s covenant to protect Nigeria’s democracy, noting that it has not changed its position.
It is the second in the series of engagements between the chief of defense staff and executives and editors of media organizations in Nigeria.
Irabor also used the event to reveal that the assailants linked to a suspected terror attack on the Saint Francis Catholic Church in Owo two months ago have been arrested.
The general, however, did not reveal the number of arrested suspects arrested.
