The Nigerian Army has said that it incurred the anger of policticians because it refused to compromise the integrity of the 2019 General Elections due to its belief in the nation’s democracy.

The army said it also acted in the best interest of the country by assisting the police in the elections.

Maj.-Gen. Jamil Sarham, General Officer Commanding (GOC), 6 Division, Port Harcourt, disclosed this while receiving two individual Awards of Excellence at the divisional headquarters on Sunday in Port Harcourt, NAN reports.

As stated by Sarham, the elections in Rivers offered a unique experience to which the army satisfactorily carried out its responsibilities.

“The 2019 general elections which the division acted in aid of Nigerian police and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) offered the army a unique experience.

“This is because some subversive elements tried, but failed to cause the division to compromise the integrity of the polls.

“Their failure was due to the resilience and doggedness of our personnel, whom some of them, unfortunately paid the supreme price in defence of our democracy,” he added.
