Minister of Defence, Mohammed Badaru, has pledged to give priority to the welfare of armed forces personnel, ensuring that their entitlements are adequately given at the right time, to boost their morale.


Badaru said this in a session House of Representatives Committee on Defence, reiterating President Bola Tinubu’s determination to eliminate terrorism, banditry and insurgency in the country while soliciting more support from the National Assembly.


According to him, the Nigerian military has recorded tremendous successes in the fight against insecurity, including banditry, kidnapping, oil theft and terrorism, but an improved welfare will spur them for more result oriented operations.


Badaru appealed to the lawmakers to adopt synergy and harmonious working relationship in order to effectively address prevalent challenges in Nigeria.
