افتراضي Jonathan - Nigeria Will Not Rely on Arms, Ammunition

President Goodluck Jonathan Monday said with the inauguration of a bullet proof vest production factory, an ancillary of the Defence Industry Corporation of Nigeria (DICON) in Kaduna, Nigeria may no longer Rely on the importation of arms and Ammunition to address its security challenges.

The inauguration of the bullet vest production factory also came on a day the president inaugurated Armoured Personnel Carriers (APCs) locally produced by the Nigerian Army Engineering Corps at the Command and Staff College, Jaji, Kaduna as part of activities marking the 2012 Nigerian Army Day Celebrations (NADCEL).

Speaking at the occasion, President Jonathan said the inauguration of the bullet proof vest production factory had shown that Nigeria was getting to a point where it could no longer be a dumping ground for anybody.

“We Will only buy what we produce here. I have been telling Nigerians and non-Nigerians that the concept of local content is Not what is produced by Nigeria, but what is produced in Nigeria. We Will encourage people to produce our needs locally,” he said.

The president, who added that the feat recorded by the Army was a testimony of his administration’s commitment in creating the requite environment for local manufacturing industries in the country to grow and contribute to the economy, further said Nigerians should patronise products manufactured locally.

“Foreign investors should come in directly or partner with local investors, DICON or other business men to produce our industrial needs because we are gradually getting to a point where Nigeria Will seize to be a country where people can come and dump whatever they like. DICON has been making strenuous efforts to partner willing local and foreign companies towards the enhancement of its capabilities and diversification of its product range.

“Today’s event also signals that our nation’s military establishment has effectively key into our administration’s local content policy which is aimed at building indigenous capacity in the petroleum and other capacity to enhance our national economy.

“DICON initiatives and the equally commendable efforts of the Nigerian Navy who singly design and constructed civil defence Boat which I commissioned about a month ago, is the beginning of the end of our total reliance on foreign supplies for our national security needs.

He added that the novel achievements by the Nigerian Army marked the beginning of the end of the nation’s total reliance on foreign suppliers for the country’s security needs.

“The nation’s military establishment has effectively keyed into the Federal Government’s Local Content Policy which is aimed at building indigenous capacity in the petroleum and other sectors of the national economy. “These feats are geared towards creating the requisite enabling environment for local manufacturing industries to grow, become major employers of labour and progressively become globally competitive. That is the only way we can move as a nation.”

He also commended the Public Private Partnership (PPP) between DICON and MAROM-DOLPHIN Nigeria Limited, which resulted in the domestic production of the bullet proof vests and other textile wares for the Nigerian Armed Forces and other security agencies in the country.

“If people fail to buy what DICON is producing, it is the sign of being unpatriotic. I think it is beyond being unpatriotic. We have a number of Nigerians that are unpatriotic, even people holding high offices.

“They have no choice except if DICON cannot produce and I must be convinced beyond reasonable doubts that DICON cannot produce before any Federal Government agency would be allowed to buy something that is Not produced here,” he said.

Earlier, the Chief of Army Staff, Lt Gen Azubike Ihejirika, said NADACEL was an annual event which allowed the army to showcase its rich history, values and achievements. Ihejirika said it would also provide the army the opportunity to celebrate and honour some of their personnel who have excelled in various fields.

“This year celebration is unique in that it is being held at the home of the Nigeria Army Infantry Corp for the first time, the uniqueness is also reflected in the theme.
Also speaking, the Minister of State for Defence, Erelu Olusola Obada, said in furtherance of developing the nation’s Defence industrial base, the Federal Government had entered into collaboration with a Chinese firm to open a new line of production of military goods.
