Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai has said the army will not tolerate acts if indiscipline.

He said if recruits aren’t ready for the life of a solider, they should drop the offer for something else.

Buratai said this while speaking during the final screening of the 80 regular recruits at the Falgore forest training camp.

He said the army will be through with the screening so as to ensure that the best of men make the numbers.

“The Nigerian Army is not ready for that again. As such, you must make up your mind that you are ready to serve your country as a soldier and you should be ready, anywhere you are deployed, after your passing out. All of you will go to Sambisa at the end of your depot training.

β€œIf you are not ready to move to Sambisa and other parts of the country, and of course, our border areas to defend our country from any act of aggression, then you have not started.

β€œIt is not yet late, if you have any doubt if you are not ready for discipline and loyalty at any point, then you can stand up and go. There is no room for laziness and indiscipline in the army and no room for malingering,” the COAS said
