Nigeria is not under military dictatorship: Jonathan to Buhari

Buhari Presidency Hijacked

In a Facebook post former President Goodluck Jonathan schooled the incumbent President Buhari on the tenets of democracy.

This is related to the recent announcement by the government that another military exercise Crocodile Smile will commence in the South South and the South West of the country.

Jonathan in opposing wrote;

“Nigeria is no longer under military rule. In a democracy, you separate the military from the police. The military is not meant to fight criminality within a nation because they are trained to fight a nation’s external enemies.

“It is the police that are trained to fight crime internally. When the military starts doing the job of the police and starts fighting or doing what they call a ‘show of force’, the effect will not be to reduce crime. The effect will be to intimidate people,”
