Former Governor of Lagos State and the leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has asked the Federal Government to recruit 50 million youths into the Nigeria Army to battle the rising spate of insecurity in the country.

Tinubu added that the proposed recruited soldiers would eat cassava, yam and corn.

This was contained in his address at the 12th Tinubu Colloquium to commemorate hi 69th birthday held in Kano State on Monday.

Tinubu said, “We are under-policed and we are competing with armed robbers and bandits to recruit from the youths who are unemployed —33 per cent unemployed?

“Recruit 50 million youths into the army, what they will eat —cassava, corn, yam, will grow here.

“Don’t talk about illiteracy, anybody who can hold a gun, who can handle a gun, who can cock and shoot is technically competent to repair a tractor in the farm.”

The ceremony to mark Tinubu’s birthday took place in Kano, Abuja and Lagos, with remote attendance by participants.
