    Nigeria Army is powerful Armed force but lack of military capability, our Government need to invest in our capability, and superior power like Egypt most of military equipment are very old. Corruption also contributed to all this, Our Air force have capability too. But we give Kudos to our Military, we proud of Galant Soldiers
