The Defence Headquarters has announced that politicians wearing military uniforms and accoutrements for electioneering campaign posters will henceforth be prosecuted.
The DHQ said the campaign posters of some governors dressed in military camouflage uniforms are displayed in noticeable areas in their respective states.
“This is manifestly illegal and an abuse of the privilege of allowing civilians wear military uniforms during military training exercises,” DHQ said.
The DHQ communicated this in a statement signed by Acting Director Defence Information, Air Commodore Wap Maigida.
It read in part, “It is necessary to restate that the Armed Forces of Nigeria, as a professional institution, remains apolitical and, as such, would not want to be dragged into any form of political bias.
“Accordingly, it is important to advise politicians and others to desist from the use of military uniforms and accoutrements for political events and other engagements henceforth. Please note, anyone found culpable in this regard would be liable to prosecution.”
