He promised to re-organise the armed forces through adequate training and funding.
“Once I am elected the president of this great country, I shall increase the numerical strength of the military, and will also equip them with modern and sophisticated weapons.
“I shall as well increase their pay and ensure they are given adequate training that will make them contain any form of attack from insurgents’’ he promised.
Abubakar further said he wanted to become Nigerian president not for his selfish interest, but that he was determined at enthroning rule of law, internal democracy and progress in the country.
