The Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru has come out to ask for the support of the Senate in making sure appropriate funding for the Nigerian army is guaranteed.

He recently revealed this when members of the Senate Committee on Army, led by its Chairman, Sen. Ali Ndume, paid an oversight visit to the Army Headquarters in Abuja.

According to him, the right funding is absolutely necessary as it will aid the army to efficiently perform its constitutional roles and defeat all security threats.

He added that the courtesy visit is very timely because it afforded them the opportunity to interact and discuss issues that would impact on the funding of army activities and operations.

His words, “To curb and finally defeat these threats, the Nigerian army requires equipment, weapons, armour fighting vehicles, platforms and various combat enablers.”

“I urge you to as a matter of urgency, consider these critical needs as you legislate and appropriate funds.”

“I will be counting on your support, so that we can efficiently perform our constitutional roles and defeat all our threats.”

“That is why we are calling on the government to give the Nigerian army the necessary support and tools to execute the mandate that is highly expected.”

“Fortunately, we understand that the supplementary budget will be laid before the national assembly to take care of some of the loopholes and lapses that we saw in the 2021 budget.”

“And, knowing the new security challenges that we are facing in various regions we are pledging that the national assembly will give all the necessary support to the Nigerian army.”

“Especially, when it comes to the issue of budget or supplementary budget that is coming before us.”
