Minister of Defence, Dr. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, weekend said there was no possibility of any terrorist atatck on Nigeria, saying the country has the manpower and equipment to fight terrorists.

Kwankwaso, in an interview with newsmen after addressing officers of the 301 Artillery Regiment in Gombe, condemned the act of terrorism.

According to him, Nigeria is safe from terrorists, but needs support of everybody for information on any suspicious activity. “We have the manpower and the equipment to fight terrorism. But we can only do this with sufficient information. We need every body’s support especially journalists,” he said.

Kwankwaso lent his weight behind the anti-corruption crusade of the President Olusegun Obasanjo government and urged state and local governments to expose corrupt officials.

He believed the anti-corruption crusade should go beyond the Federal Government.

The minister said since the President was doing well to tackle corruption, states, local governments, civil servants, and even business men should also join in the crusade so that Nigeria could be a better place.

He added that the debt relief the country got was as a result of the anti-corruption crusade of the government.

The Federal Government, he noted, is really fighting corruption, but said it should go beyond the Federal Government, state and local governments, civil servants and businessmen should join hands with the government at ther centre.

“The anti-corruption crusade of the government has been acknowledged, and I believe because of it the country got the debt relief,” he said.

Dr Kwankwaso explain that the military was well funded under the present administration than previous governments in the country, adding that salary and allowances are being paid regularly while government would soon renovate all the barracks in the country.

While commenting on the rift between him and the Kano state governor, Alh. Ibrahim Shakarau, Dr Kwankwaso said the president had intervened and urged the two of them to forget about politics and concentrate on how to give dividends of democracy to the people.
