Insurgency: Senate seeks increased budgetary allocation to Army

By Sanni Onogu, Abuja



The Senate on Wednesday called for the allocation of more funds to the Nigerian Army in the 2021 and other national budgets.

It condemned the policy of de-radicalising and reintegrating repentant insurgents into the society.



Chairman of Senate Committee on Nigerian Army, Mohammed Ali Ndume (Borno South), spoke during the 2021 budget defence session of the Army.

He said: “Eighty-three per cent of their personnel was released to them. Imagine people who are in the war front, trying to protect the country.

“Worst of it, their capital, I mean money that is supposed to be given to them to buy the necessary equipment, arms and ammunition, secure kitting for the Armed fForces, only 64 per cent of that money was released.

“On top of that, only 50 per cent was released in first week of July. The second batch of it was released this week and Nigeria is at war.

“The whole of the Nigerian Army’s budget is $1.3 billion. That is at the level of Niger, Chad, Sudan and other poor countries.

“In a period of war, where the country is borrowing and is planning to spend N13 trillion, government is budgeting less than N30 billion as capital for the Nigerian Army.

“What I see that is the difference between the Nigerian Army and the bandits is that the Nigerian Army is trained and they have uniform.
