Buratai Hails Own Performance




The immediate past Chief of Army Staff, Lt Gen Tukur Buratai (Rtd), says that he did well while he held sway as the nation’s army chief.

Buratai who was responding to a question asked him by a journalist after  a special gala night organised by members of the 29th Regular Course Association of the Nigerian Defense Academy in Abuja,  said  the criticism of his performance by  the  spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Kola Ologbodiyan did not deserve his response.

“I’m not a politician, so I have no word for the opposition. I have done well. I am happy that in July last year, my officers at the Army headquarters compiled a compendium of my achievements.

“In fact, I can’t even remember all the projects that we have executed. Is it in term of infrastructure? Is it in term of capacity building? Is it in terms of training?

“Since I was appointed, there was never a dull moment in terms of training.

“Remember the various exercises. These are training exercises from ‘Python dance’, ‘Crocodile smile’, and even the latest one ‘Exercise Sahel Sanity’.

“Is it in the area of medical? In terms of education of our children and wards, the Nigerian Army University are all great achievements.

“I think you can write volumes and volumes of books in terms of the achievements depending on the perspectives you want to take,” he said.
