Peace organ appeals to military to retain professionalism

10 April 2015, 09:15 Okoro Chinedu

Lagos - Member of the Peace Committee and former Foreign Affairs Minister, Prof. Ibrahim Gambari, has hailed the military for its professional conduct during the election period.

He commended the military for providing adequate security in ensuring free, fair and violence free polls.

Gambari urged the uniformed forces to retain professionalism for the polls scheduled for the weekend.

“You (Military) have distinguished yourself and proved your professionalism and all we ask is for you to enhance that in the forthcoming elections. We also commend you by ensuring that the people in the north east have the rights to exercise their franchise and we want you to ensure that the job is finished,” said Gambari in Abuja.

Gambari nevertheless advised that despite their commendable efforts in the last polls, a lot was still required to ensure that the forthcoming governorship and state assembly elections exceeded expectations.

Nigerians return to polls on Saturday, two weeks after they came out in numbers to participate in elections to choose the President and Senators.

The elections were hailed as free and fair, with the security forces commended for their role to ensure a largely conducive atmosphere.
