This Is How The Nigerian Army Will Use The $1 Billion Approved By President Buhari

Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, the Chief of Army Staff, has informed the press of how the $1 billion approved by President Muhammadu Buhari for the purchase of military equipment will be used by the Armed Forces to aid security agencies in the fight against insurgency.
Speaking at the Second Nigerian Army Procurement Seminar in Abuja yesterday, Buratai said the money will be utilized judiciously. He said: “Our capability is increased in terms of the platforms that would be procured, in terms of the further training that would be carried out. Once these equipment are procured, it means further consolidating on other areas where there are challenges so that the troops will be able to use these equipment and operate very efficiently to be able to defeat all those criminals.”
