“We want to make it clear that the Armed Forces of Nigeria is here to protect democracy.

“We all want democracy; we do better during democracy, and so, the armed forces will continue to support democracy,” he said.

According to him, those advocating a coup d’état are adversaries, who do not have the country’s best interests at heart.

Anybody calling for anything other than democracy is evil and does not wish us well.

“We can see that with democracy a lot of things are happening in Nigeria. Yes, we are going through a trying period, but in life, nothing is 100%.

“Everybody (country) went through trying periods, and it is what you do with them (that matters),” he added.

The military chief stated that the government had initiated actionable measures to address the array of challenges facing Nigerians. He emphasised that instead of calling for a military takeover, all citizens should rally behind the government to resolve the present circumstances.

It is when you go through difficulties, and you come out of it better, that you will truly appreciate what it is to build a nation.

“The country is going through its trying period, but I can assure Nigerians that the situation will get better.

“All we need is to unite and work together to defeat enemies of the government and country, those who do not want us to succeed,” he stated.
