The cleric while pointing out the need to select more youths across the country for enlistment into the armed forces, stressed that the current number of personnel of the armed forces is not enough to deal with the emerging security challenges confronting different parts of the nation.

He also proposed a National Diploma Certificate as a minimum requirement for enlistment into the Nigerian Police force, which according to him will enable the force to recruit only educated people that can March the criminals in their mode of operations.
