Nigerian Army has refuted news that there is discrimination against some ethnic groups in the ongoing nationwide recruitment exercise.
Army Spokesman, Brig.-Gen. Texas Chukwu, reacted in a statement on Saturday.
He described the allegation as untrue, unfounded and handiwork of unscrupulous elements attempting to drag the good name of the Army into the mud.
“For avoidance of doubt and to put the record straight, the Nigerian Army wishes to state that every eligible Nigerians are qualified to be recruited into the Nigerian Army providing such individual meet the set down standard meant for the recruitment”, Chukwu noted.
“That the Nigerian Army would ever remain apolitical in the discharge of its constitutional roles in aid of civil authority.
“Furthermore, no state of the Federation including, Adamawa State that would be exempted as alleged by the mischief makers.
“All the candidates for the recruitment exercise from Demsa, Numan, Lamurde and Girei Local Government Areas are currently participating in the ongoing recruitment exercise like any other candidates.
“The Nigerian Army wish to advised all well meaning citizens to disregard such an unfounded allegation which is an imagination of the writer.
“The allegation that the Nigerian Army selected a particular ethnic group from the South Eastern part of the country is completely false and has no bases. It is important to note that the Nigerian Army does not support any religion or tribe.
“The Army operates as an entity no matter your tribe or religion. Therefore, there is no iota of truth in the said allegation.
“The Nigerian Army once again stated its total commitment in protecting the sovereignty of the nation as well as carrying out its constitutional roles according to the constitution,” he said.
