The Oba of Benin, His Royal Majesty, Omo N’Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Ewuare II, has lauded the Nigerian Army for protecting the nation’s democracy.

The Oba gave the commendation on Monday in Benin, when he played host to Lt-Gen Tukur Buratai, the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), in his palace.

He said that the conduct of the army, in conjuction with other stakeholders, had contributed in sustaining Nigeria’s democratic process over the years.

He stressed that the role of the army in ensuring peace and security could not be over-emphasised.

He noted that the army had also helped restore peace in neighbouring countries.

He, however, commiserated with the army over the loss of some of its personnel in the war against insurgency.

The Benin monarch gave the assurance that the palace would continue to do its best and build on the legacies of his fore-fathers.
