‘Stop Cursing, Wishing Your Country Bad’ – Defence Chief Tells Nigerians




'You Are Not Complete Without Killing At Least One Boko Haram Terrorist' - CDS Tells Nigerian Army

The Chief of Defence Staff, General Christopher Musa, has appealed to Nigerians to stop raining curses on the country over the present economic situation in the country.

Musa stated this on Tuesday at a one-day seminar held by the Defence Correspondents’ Association of Nigeria (DECAN) at the Nigerian Army Resource Centre, Abuja.

He stated that cursing the country was not how to grow a nation, adding that insulting or wishing the country bad doesn’t mean those wishing her bad would grow better than they are.

The defence chief said Nigerians must take ownership of their country and do their part in ensuring that the country continues to develop.


Speaking further, Musa said the Nigerian military is deploying more non-kinetic approaches due to its effectiveness in combating terrorism and other security challenges in the country.
