Recruit 50 million youths into Army to tackle insecurity – Tinubu to Buhari

National Leader of All Progressives Congress and former Governor of Lagos state, Bola Tinubu has asked President Buhari to recruit 50 million youths into the army to tackle insecurity in the country. 

Tinubu made the appeal at the 12th colloquium to celebrate his 69th birthday in Kano State, on Monday March 29. 

The former Governor who stressed that Nigeria is under-policed, said those recruited will eat cassava, corn and yam which are grown in the country. 

He said; 

“We are under-policed and we are competing with armed robbers and bandits to recruit from the youths who are unemployed —33 per cent unemployed?

“Recruit 50 million youths into the army, what they will eat —cassava, corn, yam, we grow here.

“Don’t talk about illiteracy, anybody who can hold a gun, who can handle a gun, who can cock and shoot is technically competent to repair a tractor in the farm.”
