The Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, has assured that the Nigerian Army would not be involved in politics.

He gave the assurance on Wednesday, July 12,  after commissioning a water treatment plant built by the engineering corps of the 82 Division of the Nigerian Army, Enugu at Abakpa barracks in Enugu.

"I want to assure that the Nigerian Army will remain apolitical and responsive in the discharge of its constitutional role," he said at the event.

On the water project, Buratai hoped that the treatment plant, which has the capacity to supply one million litres of water daily, would help to address water scarcity in Enugu.
