Thoughts Lead To Appreciation
Since the postponement of February 14, 2015 Nigerian presidential elections, several vocal Nigerians have been cynical about the real intention for a sudden turnaround of military strategies, from defence to offence.
Since, I have consciously ignored such acrimonus remarks against our military.
I break my silence with this piece that refutes the allegations over a politicised military.
Before that, as some of the sceptics have relations and friends in Nigerian Armed Forces:
Do critics disdain own family and friends within the army and air force?
Or is contempt reserved for all troops minus soldiers from own social circle?
Without current military offensive in the North-East of Nigeria:
1~ Will elections have held in many locations in that region?
2~ What ratio of disenfranchised electorates will have voted for Goodluck Jonathan?
3~ What percentage of votes will the President have lost?
4~ What percentage of votes will Muhammadu Buhari have lost?
5~ How many of the electorates who vote will have supported Muhammadu?
6~ Which presidential candidate gains when every voter is able to exercise civic duty of choosing a representative in Aso Rock?
As our brave military combat our enemies, it is essential for operations to reach an optimum and maintain positions at least five days to March 28, 2015 presidential elections.
