Muhammadu-Buhari11111112

President Muhammadu Buhari has disclosed that there is not enough fire power to support ground troops to decimate the terrorists.

Speaking on Good Morning Nigeria on NTA this morning, the President said, ”The Airforce is virtually non-existent. The fixed wings aircraft are not very serviceable. The helicopters are not serviceable and they are too few.

”We need Airforce to conduct reconnaissance and support the ground troops. The arrangement made by the former government will soon expire. We have made this clear to the Americans and we have made it clear to G7 and we need their cooperation.

The President however, failed to disclose if Nigeria will be getting military equipment from the US.
