National Security Adviser, NSA, Babagana Monguno, said naira insufficiency and the cashless policy will affect military manpower deployed to remote places.
Monguno stated this on Thursday at the hearing organised by an adhoc committee of the House of Representatives looking into currency redesign and naira exchange policy.
The NSA, who was represented by A.A. Mustapha, a director in the Office of National Security Adviser, ONSA, said there’s an ongoing trouble to address the challenge.
Universally, military operations, even in First World countries, similar policies, if not appropriately well thought out will affect some of our soldiers in places where they can not actually access digital means of paying for their daily reality, ”he said.
Previously in his speech, the chairman of the commission, Ado Doguwa, said “It’s the belief of this commission that the policy would have, in one way or the other, certain indictments for the security paraphernalia or security framework of the country, especially when we’re facing elections.
