Buhari to revamp 'war against indiscipline' brigade

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari initiated the so-called war against indiscipline brigade to tackle corruption and moral turpitude in the West African countryNigeria said Tuesday it is reviving a “war against indiscipline” campaign in a reincarnation of President Muhammadu Buhari’s strict social crusade when he served as military ruler over 30 years ago. Buhari initiated the so-called war against indiscipline brigade to tackle corruption and moral turpitude in the West African country after seizing power in a military coup in December 1983. The now-notorious campaign, which saw whip-wielding soldiers enforce neat queues at chaotic bus stops and tardy public servants do humiliating frog jumps, cemented Buhari’s reputation as a disciplinarian — a trait that endears him to Nigerians craving order and accountability.
