Senator Ali Ndume has said the Nigerian Army is finding it difficult to solve security challenges in different parts of the country because it doesn’t have modern equipment required to fight terrorism.
Ali Ndume disclosed this during an interview on Channels TV’s Politics Today.
He said, “I will say it again, the purpose of government is security and welfare of the citizens. The Nigerian Army doesn’t have the number. They don’t have the equipment; they don’t have the technology that is required to solve or handle these challenges we have.
“The earlier we prioritise this seriously and even declare a kind of state of emergency in the areas of security and welfare of citizens the better for us because that is what the government is all about.
“The constitution is very clear that the purpose of government is security and welfare of its citizens. The earlier the government and people of Nigeria in all the arms of government concentrate on making sure that our country is secure and our citizens welfare is taken care of, the better for us.
“I will say again that Nigerian army I know is up to the task if given what they need. And if they are given what they need, they should be given timeline.”
He said terrorists released the victims of Kaduna-bound train attack because they were settled.
He added, “As for the action taken by the army, that is an action expected of them but that goes to show in total that if the army has the number, the modern equipment that they require, they can tackle this problem within the shortest possible time.”
