Nigerin Army Acquired15% Shareholding Of Proforce Limited. by NGpatriot: 10:48am On Sep 25
Lieutenant General Faruk Yahaya, the Nigerian Army’s Chief of Staff, has paid a visit to Proforce’s facilities as part of growing collaboration between the Nigerian Army and Nigeria’s largest armoured vehicle manufacturer.

Proforce said the visit on 22 September was an endorsement of the Proforce brand especially as Proforce is a major supplier to the Nigerian Army and its vehicles have been proven in battle in Nigeria, as well as Chad and other parts of Africa.

The COAS was given a comprehensive tour of Proforce’s facilities and capabilities, including its corporate vehicle armouring facility, Helmets and Vests manufacturing section, and maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facility. The latter repairs Nigerian Army vehicles like the Cobra and Steyr armoured personnel carriers (APCs) and Navistar and Caiman mine-resistant, ambush-protected (MRAP) vehicles.

Other areas of competence showcased to the COAS were Proforce’s unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and trainer jet facilities as well as the company’s military communications, signals intelligence (SIGINT), open-source and web intelligence (OSINT), and naval capabilities.

The Nigerian Army through its investment arm, Nigerian Army Welfare Limited by Guarantee (AWLG) has acquired a 15% shareholding of Proforce Limited. As a result, the Nigerian Army collaborates closely with Proforce, as well as other domestic armoured vehicle manufacturers.

Proforce is now a formidable military-industrial complex.

Very impressed...

Wow!!! Amazing!! Like Dangote Refinery, like Proforce. These are strategic private businesses and unlike in the past where government initiates and divest, n9w it's the private sector taking the lead ,prove their concept then government give them the push.

Congratulations to the founder of Proforce. You are a Patriot! Your patriotism eventually paid off. This technology could have been placed outside Nigeria but you chose to build it in your fatherland from the scratch. God bless you sir.


All the enemies of Nigeria will lose las las. They always lose. God bless Nigeria.

15% gives you a seat on the board, not to run the business. It shows that the NA is thinking and very smart. Most countries have stake in strategic institutions that will give you military advantage. It's a win win for Nigeria because a foreign competitor could buy the same 15% stake.
Congratulations to the NA and Proforce.

That's a negative and toxic mindset. Please wish them well. It takes a lot to build such a successful brand. If its your own hardwork, you will expect us to wish you well and support you. So give to others what you want so it comes back to you as divine favour.
The company is well managed and its major client is law enforcement agencies sector locally and internationally. 15% gives you a seat on the board, not to run the business. It shows that the NA is thinking and very smart. Most countries have stake in strategic institutions that will give you military advantage.
