Buba said ongoing military operations across the country have continued to decimate the fighting force of terrorists and other criminal elements, and reduced their fighting capacity.

He said: “The leadership of these groups remain the prime targets of ongoing operations. Accordingly, the armed forces remains determinate to destroy the terrorists, insurgents and violent extremist groups in the country and degrading their military capability,” Buba said.

Terrorism will not be eradicated as long as security receives one of the highest budgets year on year.

If it stops, the budget reduces.

There has been positive responses from the military since the inauguration of the new President. May Nigeria be great again.

The buck stops on the table of the leader indeed.

Insecurity is gradually improving.

I don't think the BH problem will ever go away. The generals will continue to cash out on defence expenditure and the citizenry is left to bear the brunt except for occasional killings of the rank and diles

Weldone, Galant soldiers!

It’s just that I do not see any end to all this terrorism, bandit, self determine, pirate etc. USA is playing game on us telling us they want peace. One of the major source of money for US & Russia is Armunition sales, who is buying it, what are they using it for, how are they manage to transport it there prefer location (this is called Black Market

Just make sure you don't go killing unarmed civilians and tagging them terrorists.

This has become the modus operandi of the Nigerian military lately.

Which kind of mentality do you guys have ?

You truly believe terrorism will magically disappear if Nigerian military get peanuts as budgets ? The IQ of most Nigerians really baffle me.

The weapons and armory our forces uses are not cheap, our military suppose to have the highest budgets in Nigeria if we really want to eradicate terrorists and insecurities.

Do you know how much country like Germany, France, USA etc put in their military every year? even those that are not at war and manufacture most of their weapons and equipment.

Many of you claim our military forces are poorly equiped but don't want high budget for them and which sector truly deserve high budget more than our forces that put their lives on the line to defend the country. What you should be demanding is accountability not underfunding the military.

USA have one of the best forces in the world today because their military have the highest budgets.
