Nigeria is safer than five years ago - Burutai

The Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, has said that Nigeria is safer than it was five years ago

Burutai made this known while having a sit-out with injured soldiers receiving treatment at the 44 Nigerian Army Reference Hospital, Kaduna.

He said, "You put yourself in a position that your sacrifice is something that you should be proud of. I am proud also and happy that you have chosen the right profession. I am very happy to see you. Haven met some of you in the battlefield, you were determined to pay the supreme prize.

"This is the true spirit of a gallant soldier and a patriot.

"I am proud you have made the impact that some of our colleagues and Nigerians are safe and I am equally happy that we are living in peace and Nigeria is Safer now than we had five years ago.”

Burutai also promised that the equipment which the hospital is lacking will be provided.

“We will continue to send our officers to see how we can get you rehabilitated through skills acquisition programme so that when you recuperate, you can go back to the field.

“We must develop these facilities here. Those equipment we don’t have we will get, so you don’t need to get surgery elsewhere. This is one of the hospitals we have upgraded,” he added.
