How British, Nigerian Armies Intend To Tackle Insurgency by priiince(m): 4:37pm On May 27, 2015
With the motive to develop the Nigeria armed forces and make its fight against terrorism efficient, Nigerian and British Armies yesterday agreed to a 20-year training pact.

The 20-year development plan took place at a two-day seminar held in Abuja.

Major-General Letam Wiwa, the Director of Military intelligence was appointed the chairman of the committee handling the development strategy.

Wiwa explains that the seminar was conceived during series of meetings held by the committee over the development plan for the Nigerian Army.

According to him, the essence is to enhance the state of combat readiness and general national development in line with the development agenda of the federal government.

British Army has antecedents for training the Nigerian Army with the pioneering soldiers attending UK academies like Sandhurst and Mons.

In recent times, Nigeria has been battling with Boko Haram insurgency.

Lack of ammunition, poor wages and allowances, among other set back have adversely affected the morale of Nigerian soldiers.

As a result, many of the soldiers regularly desert battle front, in some cases engage in mutiny while others flee to other neighboring countries for safety.

Efforts by the Nigeria Army to cage the menace have over the years proved abortive until recently when neighboring countries team up to fight the insurgents.

Few days ago, Mahammadu Buhari, Presient-elect made an unannounced trip to London. The trip caused disquiet in his party as Buhari chose to travel with two of his aides.

While this could be a clear indication he would want to run his government independently, there are suspicion Buhari might have embarked on the trip for some undisclosed official moves.

Could the 20-year pact between the Nigerian and British armies be the outcome of Buhari’s trip to London? What do you think?

So they plan for this internal war to go on for 20 more years? Chai!!
These British want some thing back that they've surely missed
This could also be an excuse for Buhcari when he cannot curb his brothers in his constitutional 8 years

Whatever move PMB decides to make, We will definitely support him. Never again will our army become a laughing stock.

Nigeria will be more united and stronger more than ever before.

Why does Nigeria insist on having some of her military thought by forces abroad that may actually be inferior to Nigerian military. Why cant Nigeria build a small town as was done in that tin can place in Calaba for Nollywood movies. We should build a mockup Town for the training of our own commandos instead of sending them to be thought by the Pakistanis, Indians, British, Tom, Dick, Harry and even Chad by the Americans?

Even i could train fighting men and i have no experience but common sense not to talk of all the brilliant and experienced soldiers we have in Nigeria. Take some soldiers, strip them of all but dagger, and send them to live in the games reserves for a month and you're half way to an SAS solider.
