Delta State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa has come out to say that members of the Nigerian Armed Forces should not use their position to abuse the rights of others in the society.

He recently urged them to try as much as possible to be very humane while they discharge their official responsibilities in the country.

According to him, the advice has become key because the society is now more conscious of their rights and how they want to be secured.

He then thanked the military authorities for being conscious of the need for peace and security in Delta and for impacting the “Stronger Delta Agenda” of the state government positively.

His words, “I assure the Nigerian Army of this administration’s constant support as you continue to engage in intensive security duties in the state. I commend the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai for his thoughtfulness and strategic foresight in conducting Exercise Crocodile Smile VI ahead of the yuletide.

“From antecedents, the security issues prevalent within the yuletide are not lost on any of us as criminal elements move to amass wealth through underhanded means during the period”.
