In a statement, yesterday, George said his appeal to the two is in the interest of the country, being a former junior officer to the duo.He reminded the two former Generals to recall the military ethics, which says: “We don’t wash our dirty linens in the open.”
George’s position is coming on the backdrop of the recent outcry by Chief Obasanjo that his life was under threat as a result of his tough position on Buhari’s style of governance.
“Chief Obasanjo is a man of towering distinction and excellence, who ruled Nigeria both as a military Head of State and as a civilian president. He is an international figure who is motivated by patriotism.
“President Buhari is equally a patriot, a gentleman and officer whose totality of vision is about the growth and welfare of our commonwealth. As a military man, I know these senior officers very well. I have worked at close quarters with the two of them. I have no doubt about their selfless commitment to our nation.
“I am appealing to the two personages as a junior officer to sheathe their swords and resolve their differences behind the curtain. That is the military style. We don’t wash our dirty linens in the open.”
