Army Restates Call For Removal From Envelope System Of Funding

The Nigerian Army has restated its call for the Force to be removed from the general system of funding in the country.

The Chief of Army staff, Lieutenant General Taoreed Lagbaja, who made the request while defending the budget proposal of the Nigerian army before a joint budget Defence session, explained that the system has continued to encourage gross under-funding of the Army.

He further urged the National Assembly to facilitate the passage of the Armed Forces Trust fund bill before the end of 10th Assembly.

The committee observed a minute of silence, after which the COAS again expressed regrets over the Kaduna accidental drone bombing, describing it as an error.
