356 Soldiers Tender Resignation to Buratai, Cite Loss of Interest

No fewer than 356 soldiers in the North -East and other theatres of operation have applied to the Chief of Army Staff, Lt Gen Tukur Buratai, for voluntary retirement, citing “loss of interest ” as their reason for disengagement .
The soldiers wrote to the army chief on July 3, 2020 under Reference NA/COAS/001, quoting the Harmonised Terms and Conditions of Service soldiers/rating/ airmen (Revised) 2017.
The approval of the voluntary disengagement of the 356 soldiers was contained in a 17-page circular from Buratai, AHQ DOAA/G1/300/ 92, signed by Brig Gen T . E . Gagariga for the army chief.
Also, the document was copied to Headquarters, Theatre Command, Operation Lafiya Dole, Borno State, the Headquarters of 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 81, and 82 Divisions of the Nigerian Army and other formations.
Reports say majority of the soldiers applying for voluntary disengagement and citing loss of interest are from the North -East theatre of operation – a development which military sources attributed to loss of morale, poor weapons! unimproved allowances and the continuous loss of soldiers to Boko Haram attacks.
