The DHQ said the act amounted to an abuse of the privilege of allowing civilians to wear military uniforms during training exercises.
A statement by Acting Director Defence Information, Air Commodore Wap Maigida, reads: “The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has noticed with dismay that some politicians have formed the habit of wearing military uniforms and accoutrements for electioneering campaign posters.
“The campaign posters of some governors, dressed in military camouflage uniforms, are displayed in noticeable areas in their respective states.
“This is manifestly illegal and an abuse of the privilege of allowing civilians to wear military uniforms during military training exercises.
“Accordingly, it is important to advise politicians and others to desist from the use of military uniforms and accoutrements for political events and other engagements henceforth.
“Please note, anyone found culpable in this regard would be liable to prosecution.”
