I Ask for Some Patience With the Acquisition of Equipment – Buhari
Nwolu Obiajulu

President Muhammadu Buhari has asked Nigerians to be patient with his administration as he strives to equip the military against security threat.

Buhari made the call in a tweet on his official twitter handle in the late hours of Monday 10 August, 2020.

This call comes after Buhari had a meeting with Governors from the six North-East states, all service chiefs and the Inspector-General of Police.

The Governors, who on Saturday, elected Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum, as Chairman of the region’s Governors Forum pledged to partner with the government to fight Boko Haram and requested for more hardware for the military to tackle insurgency in the region.

Buhari said, “We are working very hard to ensure the security situation in every part of Nigeria improves very soon. As part of our efforts, we are investing heavily in acquiring modern equipment. Soma have arrived, some are being cleared at the Ports, and we have others still on their way.

“Our government is doing its best on the question of equipment, and the military know. We understand the importance of properly equipping our personnel, so that they can deliver their best.

“I ask for some patience with the impact of Covid-19 on global supply chains. And when the equipment arrive, we need to train personnel for their usage, ahead of deployment to the field.

“I want all Nigerians to rest assured that we are doing our very best in this regard. You will see substantial improvements very soon, Security of lives and property of all Nigerian people will continue to be a priority for us.”
