If you vote me our soldiers will not buy uniforms ,shoes-Buhari on tackling Boko Haram

The All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd), has weighed in on the recent CNN interview were alleged soldiers claimed they were not properly equipped for combat and buy their own uniforms and shoes...Buhari spoke on Friday at a campaign rally at the Ibrahim Babangida Square in Makurdi, the Benue State capital,saying when voted into power,all that would be a thing of the past ..

“It is unfortunate that despite the trillions of naira the government has been voting for security in the last four years, our military men today cannot fight Boko Haram.
“The morale of the military, police and other law enforcement agencies is very low, otherwise how can our soldiers go and grant interviews to the press that they cannot fight Boko Haram? Go and see the trillions of naira voted for security in the last four years for weapons and training, yet, insurgents are clamping down on our soldiers.
“Our soldiers won’t need to buy uniforms when APC comes into government. Our soldiers and policemen will not buy uniforms and shoes. They will be provided for them and they will be told to be patriotic and loyal to law and order,”
