A former Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai (rtd), and Nigeria’s Ambassador to Republic of Benin has distanced himself from calls and campaign posters calling on him to join partisan politics and join the 2023 presidential race under one of the political parties.

Buratai  stated that he has never indicated interest, discussed with, or directed anyone on such matters. This was contained in a statement by his Brigadier-General Sani Kusheka (rtd)

“Therefore, such calls and posters should be  discountenance as they did not emanate from him, nor is he interested in them. It is entirely the handiwork of some people for reasons best known to them,” the statement read.

“His Excellency wishes to reiterate his contentment and commitment to national service in his present capacity as Nigeria’s Ambassador to the Benin Republic. He remains loyal and eternally grateful to President Muhammadu Buhari for the opportunity to serve. He, however, wishes to thank all well-meaning persons, friends and well-wishers who showed concern over this development,” it added.
