The governor advised that at least 50,000 people from Borno should be engaged by the military with or without western education to prosecute the ongoing war on terror.
He made this known while playing host to the House of Representatives’ Committee on Defence led by its chairman, Hon. Babajimi Benson, on Wednesday.
According to him, the war against insurgents cannot be competently fought and successfully won without manpower, technology and proper funding.
Zulum told Benson during the visit that;
you cannot fight this insurgency to an end without technology and without manpower and without funding.
Take my words, they (the military) don’t have the manpower, they don’t have the equipment. Kindly advise the Speaker and the Senate President to tell Mr President to approve the massive recruitment of soldiers.
We need about 100,000 more to be recruited into the Nigerian Army. They should come and employ the locals whether they have western education or not.
We need to recruit nothing less than 50,000 men from Borno, we have able-bodied men that can join the Nigerian Armed Forces on an ad-hoc basis.
