Insecurity: We need more military platforms, weapons – Osinbajo
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo said that as a huge country facing security challenges, Nigeria needs to increase its resources and the use of technology, as well as more military platforms, weapons and ammunition. The vice president said all of this is now happening.
Osinbajo, according to a statement made yesterday by his spokesperson, said this Saturday evening at the Presidential Villa when he received a delegation from the Christ Apostolic Church, (CAC) led by its president, Pastor Samuel Oladele.
Osinbajo recalled that the Tucano fighter jets ordered by the federal government and for which he fully paid more than $469 million about four years ago were only delivered last year.
He also said the government was reconfiguring the country’s security, “local ammunition manufacturing is on the cards and a lot of work is going on. We pray to see some of the results soon. He said: “Our country has potential if we can continue to have honest leadership.
When I decided to run for office, I thought we should even think about it. I have seen it for 7 years and I know it can be done”. The statement quotes Pastor Oladele asking President Muhammadu Buhari to do more for Nigeria’s peace and prosperity.
The statement said that Osinbajo, during a symposium organized by the Church Guardians Unit of the Cherubim & Seraphim Movement, Surulere District, Ayo Ni O in Lagos on Saturday morning, also urged all religious leaders in the country to inspire good values and greatness in the nation. in their leadership roles. “This is particularly the case, he said, because the church and other religious leaders have played a key role in nation-building and in the development of public and private institutions for many decades in Nigeria and this should continue.”
He said with rampant corruption, among other societal vices that had plagued the nation for decades, the church needed to rediscover its role as a shaper of values.
He added, “Nigeria’s destiny rests on the joint efforts of ordinary people doing their best where they can. That as citizens in a democracy, they have the power to direct the course of the nation by engaging in the electoral and political process; to seek godly men and women of ability and elect them to offices.
The Church Holds More Power Than She Knows “As a pastor who has spent over three decades in public service, I have unwavering faith in the ability of the Nigerian people to build a country that we can all be proud of. Like most of us, I have seen with my own eyes what Nigerians are capable of with the right environment and support,” the Vice President said.
