$1billion Arms Purchase: Weapon Cannot Fight War, Factor in Welfare of Soldiers – Shehu Sani

…Urges Govt to Remember Our Moribund Defence Industry Before Enriching Arms Manufacturing Nations

Abuja (Sundiata Post) – Senator Representing Kaduna Central district at the National Assembly, Senator Shehu Sani has reacted to the $1billion approved by President Muhammadu Buhari for the purchase of military hardware, saying that weapon cannot fight war.

He therefore urged the government to factor in the welfare of Officers and soldiers fighting the war.

The Kaduna Senator and human right activist reminded that we should first realise that our Defence Industry is moribund before enriching arms manufacturers in other nations.

We recall that President Buhari on Wednesday approved $1 billion for the purchase of military hardware for the prosecution of the Boko Haram war ravaging the north east of Nigeria.

Shehu Sani while reacting to this development said that a billion dollar to purchase arms will not make sense if we don’t factor the welfare and well-being of the officers and soldiers fighting the war.

He also said that a special fund for the injured, the orphans and widows of our fallen soldiers need also to be factored in.

The Comrade Senator said that our self-sufficiency should not be about rice alone.

Shehu Sani who stated this on his Facebook page and twitter handle @ShehuSani said:

“A Billion dollar to purchase arms will not make sense if we don’t factor the welfare and well-being of the officers and soldiers fighting the war.

“A special fund for the injured, the orphans and widows of our fallen soldiers need also to be factored in. A weapon cannot fight a war without the men to use it.

“We also need to remind ourselves that our Defence Industry is moribund, before we enrich arms manufacturers in other nations. Our self sufficiency should not be about rice alone”.
