President Muhammadu Buhari has at a Dinner event described the arms deal scandal as a betrayal of trust at all levels.

“We expended the meagre resources we have to ensure the morale of the military is raised by getting officers to be on the ground with the men. But unfortunately for us, as a people, …there was an abuse of trust at various levels which cost Nigeria a lot of lives and goodwill.

“So, we cannot keep quiet about this. It is very unfortunate. It is a known fact that Nigeria earned its respect from Burma to Zaire to Liberia to Sierra Leone. But it reached a stage where the Nigerian military could not secure 14 out of the nation’s 774 local governments.”

“Let us make up our minds that whatever we are doing, we are doing it for this country. Let us secure the country first. Let us efficiently manage the country.

“That was why I was up and down to Niger, Chad, Cameroon, Benin and Germany to meet the leaders of G7 and the leaders of the international community to put our case forward which is very well known.

“If in the capital of a developed country, 130 people were killed, who is Nigeria? We have a problem, but we are very lucky that the intention of the terrorists is to divide the country but I think they have misfired,” he added.
