A Nigerian soldier, Ojikutu Ridwanullahi has taken to his Facebook page to plead with Nigerians to give them a little respect rather than add to their problems.
The soldier, reminding Nigerians that they are the ones fighting Boko Haram wrote;
Take for instance, if there is an attack u cannot go there but to run off the place to avoid death but we with just one life like u will run to it and make it stop. We can die as well because we have blood in our veins.
You have never clapped for our struggles but talk bad about us, u have never prayed for us but plan on how to injure us are u our enemy as well. Before i joined Army, i thought Soldiers were bullies but wen i joined i got to know that since u cant stop a moving car but pushing or pulling it den u cant stop soldiers from being rugged and chausing because thats the programming.
Stop adding to Soldiers problem and give us our little respect as warriors. In those days, no one dears try a knight or soldiers but nw not the same.
Our soldiers die everyday for the country. If you want to know more, come for the training and lets post you @ Maiduguri or Chad or Cameroon then you will know. Gallant Soldiers pls pass this on till all Nigerian will see it. Cos when ever I remember all I and my regulars went through water fell from my eyes. we re rugged, we re not coward ”
GOD BLESS NIGERIAN ARMY,I rep 74″
