“Recruit 50 million youths into Army to tackle insecurity” – Tinubu tells Buhari

National Leader of All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu has suggested President Muhammadu Buhari to recruit 50 million youths into the military to tackle insecurity within the nation.

The former Lagos state Governor made this submission on the twelfth colloquium held for his 69th birthday celebration in Kano State on Monday, March 29.

Tinibu emphasised that Nigeria is under-policed to fight the rising charge of banditry and theft within the nation.

He went on to proffer an answer to the nagging downside. According to him, the federal government ought to enlist 50 million Nigerian youths into the army. He added that the recruits will eat cassava, corn and yam grown within the nation.

He stated;

“We are under-policed and we’re competing with armed robbers and bandits to recruit from the youths who’re unemployed —33 per cent unemployed?

“Recruit 50 million youths into the military, what they may eat —cassava, corn, yam, we develop right here.

“Don’t talk about illiteracy, anybody who can hold a gun, who can handle a gun, who can cock and shoot is technically competent to repair a tractor in the farm.”
