Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has underscored the need for transparency in the management of resources meant for the acquisition of hardware for the defence and security agencies.
He spoke late Wednesday during a virtual interaction after receiving a presentation on “Defence Transformation and National Security: Strategic Options for Nigeria of the Future”, by the National Defence College Course 30 participants.
Daily Trust reports that Nigeria is facing a myriad of challenges like terrorism, banditry, kidnapping for ransom and agitations for secession, among others.
Security breaches are ripe across all the six geopolitical zones including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) as a symbol of authority is being desecrated and civilians and security operatives killed.
While the federal government had been budgeting billions of naira on defence and security, experts believed the manner in which the resources are being spent is questionable; hence the call for transparency and in some cases probe.
