The youth explained that they have no doubt that General Minimah has garnered enough skills and experience to tackle the multifaceted security problem confronting our the country.

“We therefore deem it fit and thought it wise to draw the attention of well meaning Nigerians most especially the unprejudiced lawmakers that cut across different religious and ethnic background.

“Sequel to the past antecedent of General K.T Minimah who join the Nigeria Defence Academy’s 25th regular course, a refined and dogged infantry officer who rose through the ranks to become the head of Lagos command, whose excellent performance earned him his immediate past appointment, commander of the Nigerian Army infantry corps Jaji. This availed him added opportunities to meeting sound minded Nigerians including the highest ranking officers of the Nigerian Army”, the statement said. See below for full text of the statement.

Press Release

The Northern Nigeria Youth Council has noticed with great concern publications in some national dailies the way the office of service chiefs especially the office of the chief of Army staff wants to be politicized base on sentiments.

However the council wishes to express with great dissatisfaction by aborting her foreign trip to express her views towards the development in the military shake-up and the mixed reactions that subsequently followed.
