Nigeria is at war against all manner of insecurity. The military needs more funding – Gbajabiamila says

The House of Representatives speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila, says the military needs more funding because Nigeria is at war against many forms of insecurity.

Gbajabiamila said this at a public hearing on a bill seeking to establish a special trust fund for the armed forces today May 17. According to Gbajabiamila, the widespread insecurity in the country has made extra funding for the military a necessity.

“Even with these extensive and wider examination of our security challenges, we cannot exclude the need for and benefit of a well-equipped and better trained military in the fight against all forms of insecurity.

It is a historic fact that countries during war times do not fund their military through regular appropriation alone. From the USA, to the United Kingdom and all Western powers; their military was funded through extra budgetary means during periods of war.

Nigeria is at war against insurgency, terrorism, kidnapping and all manner of insecurity; hence the need to uplift the resources available to our armed services to enable them procures the best tools to help win this war. So, what we seek to do in this Bill is not new or unique to us as a nation.

The solution to our security challenges requires asymmetric actions across many policy areas. This is what we have tried to do as the representatives of the people. The concept of a Trust fund already exists for the Nigerian Police.

It only makes sense to also bolster our military capability as well through this unique vehicle. In this Bill; the board of the trust fund is full of eminent Nigerians from all walks of life; this should give confidence to all of the depth of knowledge and experience that will be available to manage this fund. The national assembly will equally play its part in over sighting this work of this Trust Fund.”
