The Plight Of The Nigerian Military. by Kingcredo(m): 10:50am On Sep 29, 2020
The Nigerian military is the most powerful.
Wait, with scores of gallant soldiers who lost their lives defending the nation?
A rhetorical question, so to say.
I remember those days when tens of Nigeria Military are the equivalent of thousand Nigeria Mopols. A shock irony now that the same underrated Mopols have become the rescuers to the acclaim Nigeria Military.
Those days when a single combatant Soldier can radicalize tons of hoodlums in the street. It was those periods when terrorists shiver and take to their heels at the sight of Military camouflage. This was used to be a camouflage of pride and valor; a camouflage of briefness and rigidity.
It was the same Nigeria Military who provided save haven for the ECOWAS peace organization. They were the frontiers of peacekeepers; starting from Congo in 1964, and to the different engagements in Mali, Guineas-Bissau, and the peak of it in Liberia and Sierra leone.
The question now, what has gone wrong?
I think the answer is enshrined, encapsulated, and contained in the literary composition of Sun Tzu, Art of War.
He said: "In the operations of war, where there are in the field a thousand swift chariots, as many heavy chariots, and a hundred thousand mail-clad sol-diers, with provisions enough to carry them a thousand li, the expenditure at home and at the front, including entertainment of guests, small items such as glue and paint, and sums spent on chariots and armor, will reach the total of a thousand ounces of silver per day. Such is the cost of raising an army of 100,000 men".
Until the lawmakers and the law executors adopt and take into action the words of Sun Tzu, the glories of Nigeria military would forever be fold.
