“We do not have the relevant equipment to deal with the relative insecurity. Our forces need minimum equipment to add to their strength because presently, we do not have the minimum for standard operation.

“We must task the Federal Government to equip the armed forces to be able to function without hindrance. We must wake up and equip our armed forces to the standard level,” he said.
