Nigerian Army Rated 5th Worst In The World by BlowBack: 5:01pm On Mar 25, 2018
http://www.wearethemighty.com/articles/worst-armies


Nigeria is struggling with an ISIS-affiliated insurgency from Boko Haram (of “Bring Back Our Girls” fame). Despite Nigeria’s oil wealth (the Nigerian oil industry is the largest on the continent), its military is ill-equipped to combat this Islamist uprising. One soldier described it to BBC as:

“Imagine me and you are fighting, we both have guns but while you are wearing a bullet proof vest, I’m carrying an umbrella.”
Soldiers in the country’s Northeastern Borno State are so underequipped, their armored vehicles don’t actually move. Some soldiers are known to flee with civilians as they tear off their uniforms.

BH is the world's most deadly Terrorist organization

Fulani Militia who the govt terms mere criminals are globally recognized as the 4th most dangerous terror organization

The Nigerian army is ranked 5th worst military in the world citing training, equipment and discipline plus their piled up gross human right's abuse.

The country is truly a shithole

The Nigeria army and the police are filled with frustrated and jobless people who couldn't compete with their peers in the labour market but had to grudgingly put on the uniform as a last resort to survive hunger.

It is filled with nincompoops, urchins, touts, failures and social deviants.

Locally, nationally as well as internationally PMB is disgracing Nigeria back to back by making fool of the army...
Eg boko haram bandits came adopted over a hundred girls, decided to return them after a month, they drove through to and fro without any interception from the Nigeria military, what a disgrace?

Rate them how you want, even big-girls-blouse, if it'd make you sleep smiling for a night, but it won't change reality on the ground. Nigerian army will still kick butt and Bokoharam will still hide behind schoolgirls skirts instead of face army squarly.

What a shitholee country

''Electricity and clean water for everyone'' are NOT ''common''.

Only 20% of nations on earth are able to provide that to all of their citiizens.


The problem with you people is that you think everywhere outside Nigeria is like Switzerland or Japan (which is why many of you end up as slaves in Libya).

Majority of countries on earth are developing countries facing the same problems as Nigeria. Countries like Peru, Sri Lanka, Venezuela, Nepal, Burma, Bolivia, Chad, Honduras, Mali, Senegal, Libya, India, Mexico, Bangladesh, Jordan, Uzbekistan, Uganda, Madagascar, etc.

NOT UK, USA, France, Germany etc. Those are the MINORITY.

Also, you need to use your brain when reading stuff online.

Rather than swallow anything any fool posts online as the gospel truth, you should ask ''What criteria did this man use in drawing up this list''? By his criteria, we can equally say the USA is the worst army in the world. They've been fighting ragtag rebels in Afghanistan for over 15 years and still cannot win. They've been fighting ragtag rebels in Iraq since 2003 and still cannot win. They fought a ragtag Vietnam army and yet lost 50,000 soldiers, and lost the war... All these despite their trillion dollar defence budget. Anyone can draw up a list of countries they hate and label them ''the worst'' using any parameters they choose.

No matter what, we need to support NA because we have no other Military.

Nigerians thought it's all about corruption not knowing there are alot. PMB isn't good at Human Capital Management,

If Jonathan ever stole government monies, it's widely believed that NigerDelta oil funded the act. How do you then fairly judge who used his money to eat 'akara'.
Just? No

But the sharing partern of our Commonwealth encourages systemic corruption which only good social welfare plan and restructuring can solve.

If PMP is that innocent nepotism is enough as corruption. He used his position as CinC to put round pegs in square holes, that also comes with financial implications.

Corruption in Nigeria trives on our diversity and it affects all sectors.
