The Last Time Weapons Were Bought For The Nigerian Army Was In 2006 – Alex Badeh

Immediate past Chief of Defence staff, Alex Badeh is not done talking about the lack of equipment in the Nigerian army. In an interview with Channels TV, Alex Badeh said the last time the Nigerian army received new equipment was in 2006 and that the Nigerian military flies the oldest fighter jets in the whole world. He’s now saying all this after he was removed as Chief of Defence Staff. I see!
“We found out that we had fifth columnist in the military that were leaking information to terrorist and then we also had challenges of serviceable equipment. If I go down memory lane, I think the last time any piece of equipment was bought for the Nigerian army was in 2006 and how many were they? They were few. In fact they were few and if we go way back to 1993, from then on, soldiers were not allowed to even go to range to go and practice. So a soldier that is not practicing how to use his gun, what kind of military are you going to have? So those were the challenges we had so when we were faced with Boko Haram, it became a very big challenge. We have been trying to increase the military by ourselves. You don’t give me budget and say go and build barracks. Barracks is capital intensive. So even if we recruit so many people in the military now, we don’t have where to house them. So it is a challenge too that government must face. Government must build barracks for us so that we can recruit more. For a population of over 170 million, what we have in Nigeria can not be adequate enough to protect us So those were the challenges we had. Inadequate equipment, obsolete equipment. In fact we are the ones that are flying the oldest fighter aeroplanes in the whole world. Alpha jets we bought them in 1981. That is the backbone of our operations in the Northeast” he said

    Abeg. Make we hear jor. A general is not supposed to be a coward! Why did you not raise all these issues while you were in service? And what happened to all the military budget as well as all the money released by Okonjo Iweala to fight book haram? Crocodile tears are unexpected of a gentleman that the military is supposed to be. So just hush!

      True Emmanuel . Alex Badeh should bury his face in shame . When Gov. Shettima said this obvious truth , Badeh was the first to deny it and call for Shettima’s head . Whatever this double tongued ”Bad-egg” general does now will not change the fact of his failure. He must be made to return every kobo of his loot !
