IBB’s call for equipping soldiers with modern weapons, training must not be ignored, says NEF

The Northern Elders Forum, NEF, has faulted the Federal Government’s approach in handling the issues of defence, security and law and order.

The Forum urged the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government to ensure that the advice by a former military president, Gen. Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (rtd.), for equipping soldiers with modern weapons and training was not ignored.

IBB also noted that there were many other things politicians ought to put right in bringing an end to the insecurity in the land.
