PORT HARCOURT—Minister of State for Defence, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro, yesterday, said that the military was to procure more hardware  to effectively curb  insurgency in the country.

Speaking in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, while on a tour of Navy formations in the state, he said that the Federal Government had approved the release of funds for the acquisition.
“President Goodluck Jonathan is committed to enhancing our military efficiency and capacity to deliver in the fight against insurgency. In the fight against terrorism, the President has approved huge acquisitions to build up the capacity of our military as this had not been done in the last 25 years.

“These are efforts that are commendable and we should continue to encourage and support government to do more in the fight against insurgency. The fight against terrorism is not all about the President, it is not about you or me, it is about all of us Nigerians and it is a war that we can only win if we stand together".
