Shocking Revelation : The Last Time Weapons Were Bought For The Nigerian Army Was in 2006 - Alex Badeh(VIDEO)

Leave a Comment

 How true could this be? despite the insurgence. The Immediate past Chief of Defence staff, Alex Badeh is not done talking about the lack of equipment in the Nigerian army.
 In an interview with Channels TV, Alex Badeh said the last time the Nigerian army received new equipment was in 2006 and that the Nigerian military flies the oldest fighter jets in the whole world. He's now saying all this after he was removed as Chief of Defence Staff. 

"We found out that we had fifth columnist in the military that were leaking information to terrorist and then we also had challenges of serviceable equipment. If I go down memory lane, I think the last time any piece of equipment was bought for the Nigerian army was in 2006 and how many were they? They were few. In fact they were few and if we go way back to 1993, from then on, soldiers were not allowed to even go to range to go and practice. So a soldier that is not practicing how to use his gun, what kind of military are you going to have? So those were the challenges we had so when we were faced with Boko Haram, it became a very big challenge. We have been trying to increase the military by ourselves. You don't give me budget and say go and build barracks. Barracks is capital intensive. So even if we recruit so many people in the military now, we don't have where to house them. So it is a challenge too that government must face. Government must build barracks for us so that we can recruit more. For a population of over 170 million, what we have in Nigeria can not be adequate enough to protect us So those were the challenges we had. Inadequate equipment, obsolete equipment. In fact we are the ones that are flying the oldest fighter aeroplanes in the whole world. Alpha jets we bought them in 1981. That is the backbone of our operations in the Northeast" he said

Leave a Comment

 President Muhammadu Buhari is appealing to Nigerians abroad to remain wherever they are while the country battles the challenge of unemployment rocking the nation.

Buhari said this in a meeting with members of the Nigerian community in Benin Republic on Saturday evening.

In response to a question on what his administration was doing to facilitate their return home, Buhari told them [Nigerians abroad] to stay put because he would not want them to add to the problem of unemployment currently in Nigeria

He said: "I believe a lot of you are doing well and are better of here. So, the question of facilitating you to come home does not arise. We don’t want you to come back home and be unemployed. Don’t come and add to our problems. If you have something doing here please, continue doing it.”

Buhari also confirmed reports that his administration plans to reduce the number of federal ministries. He said: "Although we are trying to cut down on the number of ministries, the morale of Nigerians in the Diaspora must be considered. This is because we are so many. We are aggressive whether in business or other facets of life. So, we, as a government, will do everything possible to look after Nigerians wherever they are."

The President also appealed to Nigerians in other countries to remain law-abiding citizens of wherever they are staying, and be good ambassadors of the nation. He said: "“I have always told the Nigerian communities to respect their hosts’ culture and obey their laws. Some of them are in prison for committing a number of crimes. But for you who are so close home, you should do your best to be good ambassadors of the country."
