Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has assured that the federal government would continue to give priority attention to the operational requirements and welfare of the Nigerian Armed Forces.
Mr Osinbajo who was the Reviewing officer, made the remark during the Passing out Parade of 187 Direct Short Service Course 28 at the Military Training Centre (MTC), Nigerian Air Force Base Kaduna on Wednesday.
He said in a few years, Nigeria would become “by far, the greatest military force in Africa.”
He appreciated the armed forces for effectively containing the territorial ambitions of the Boko Haram terrorists, by substantially degrading their capacity to attack and wreak havoc.
He assured Nigerians that the threats of ISWAP, bandits and other criminals would be effectively contained to secure the country.
The vice president said the military should deploy effective propaganda to diminish the efforts of insurgents who now use the social media to dish out falsehood to shore up their non-existing strength.
