Nigeria's Air Marshal, Hasan Abubakar, has issued a strong challenge to the country's armed forces, declaring that they have "no excuse not to secure Nigeria." His statement comes amidst ongoing security challenges across the nation, with citizens facing threats from banditry, terrorism, and separatist movements.

According to reports from Punch Newspaper, "Abubakar noted that President Bola Tinubu had provided the military with the needed equipment and resources to deliver on its constitutional mandates." In addition, FG has already budgeted N3.2 trillion in 2024 to enhance defense and security in the country.

Abubakar's remarks, delivered during a recent visit to troops deployed in the North-East, were unequivocal. He emphasized the gravity of the situation, stating, "We have no reason, no excuse not to secure this country. The President has provided us with the equipment, the resources, the training. It is now left for us to deliver on our mandate."

The Air Chief's words resonated deeply within the military ranks and sparked wider public discussion. Many Nigerians welcomed the renewed focus on accountability and expressed hope that it would translate into concrete action.

Air Marshal Abubakar's challenge to the military is a wake-up call. It highlights the urgent need for decisive action to address Nigeria's security challenges.

Whether his words will lead to a turning point in the fight for national security remains to be seen. However, one thing is certain: the Nigerian people are yearning for peace and stability, and the duty is now on the military to deliver.

The success of the military's efforts will depend on its ability to overcome these challenges and implement effective strategies to secure the nation. Only then can Abubakar's statement be seen as a turning point, not just for the military, but for the future of Nigeria as a whole.
