The Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, laments over non-commitment of some officers in tackling insurgency

The Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, has lamented that some officers insufficient commitment is affecting the success of the counter-insurgency operations in the country.
Buratai who spoke at the opening of a five-day leadership workshop for mid-level officers and soldiers in Abuja, said the rising terrorist attacks were due to “insufficient commitment to a common national and military cause by those at the frontlines.”
The army chief noted that there were proven cases of soldiers unwilling to carry out assignments given to them, adding that reluctant troops should leave the service as the army would no longer tolerate them.
Buratai added that an effect of modernization, globalization and Information and Communications Technology in the last decades had been the “decline in nationalistic enthusiasm.”
