Nigerian army equipped, many joined out of no job

Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd.), Nigeria's National Security Adviser at a forum in Chatham House, London disclosed that the country's military is equipped to fight Boko Haram insurgence. He said: "anyone who is saying that they are not well armed is not telling the truth, we had a lot of cowards, and it turned out there was a problem in the recruitment process. There were a lot who joined because they wanted a job, not because they wanted a career in the military. These are the people who ran away." 

This is another dimension to this whole saga. I remember being recruited by the military was a dream come true for many young Nigerian men few years back.

I hope they fix this shortcomings in the recruitment process soon.
