Buhari unveils made-in-Nigeria war vehicles, promises security


President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday reassured Nigerians of their safety under his administration, promising that he remained committed to fighting insecurity, especially insurgency.



He spoke in Kaduna where he unveiled additional Made-in-Nigeria Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles for the Nigerian Army.



The vehicles, code-named Ezugwu MRAP, will be used for counter-insurgency operations by the army.



They were produced by the Defence Industries Corporation of Nigeria, an indigenous company.



The President launched the vehicles at the opening ceremony of the 2019 Chief of Army Staff Annual Conference.



Reassuring Nigerians of their safety, Buhari said, ‘‘This is a commitment we have made and will continue to keep.”



On Ezugwu MRAP, the President commended DICON and the several bodies that collaborated to produce them.



A statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mr Garba Shehu, quoted him further, ‘‘I note the collaborative efforts of the Command Engineering Depot with relevant indigenous organisations to promote local content towards developing our military-industrial complex.



“I am glad that the production of Ezugwu MRAP vehicles, which I will be unveiling today (Tuesday), will join the infantry patrol vehicles that were earlier produced as a testimony that our efforts are yielding positive results.



“Additionally, your efforts in terms of capacity building, training and conduct of exercises are quite commendable.
