Following the news report making rounds, the Federal Government has clarified that there were no discussions with foreign countries regarding the establishment of foreign military bases in Nigeria.

 

This was contained in a statement issued on Monday by the Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris and made available to New Telegraph.

 

According to him, the Nigerian Government did not engage in any discussions with foreign countries regarding the establishment of military bases in Nigeria, nor has it received any proposals for such.

 

The minister urged the public to disregard false alarms and emphasised the government’s commitment to existing foreign cooperation in addressing security challenges.

 

He said, “The Federal Government is aware of false alarms being raised in some quarters alleging discussions between the Federal Government of Nigeria and some foreign countries on the siting of foreign military bases in the country.

 

“We urge the general public to disregard this falsehood.

 

“The Federal Government is not in any such discussion with any foreign country. We have neither received nor are we considering any proposals from any country on the establishment of any foreign military bases in Nigeria.

 

“The Nigerian government already enjoys foreign cooperation in tackling ongoing security challenges, and the President remains committed to deepening these partnerships, to achieve the national security objectives of the Renewed Hope Agenda.”
