Why we must manufacture our own weapons ― Osinbajo


Vice President Yemi Osinbajo at the weekend remarked that the politicisation of the means of the purchase of weapons is an indication that “we must manufacture our own arms.”

The vice-president made the remark at the 45th convocation lecture of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife.

He added that the “insecurity problem that we are experiencing, the rise of terrorism in some parts of the country, the access to illegal weaponry by non-state actors tells us that we must be smarter in policing the country using smart drones and surveillance equipment.”

He revealed that Profex, a Nigerian company, is already manufacturing APCs and exporting them to several African countries.
