The Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) has warned the Nigerian government that allowing United States of America (USA) and France to relocate their military bases from neighbouring African countries to Nigeria will weaken the country’s defence capabilities.

According to a statement by Comrade Muhammed Ishaq, Ag. National Publicity Secretary of the party, the presence of foreign military bases could divert Nigeria’s attention from addressing its domestic security challenges to catering to the strategic interests of the base-owner countries.

“This might result in neglecting Nigeria’s internal security needs and weakening its defense capabilities,” he stressed.

 “The PRP joins other Nigerian patriots who have alerted President Bola Tinubu and members of the National Assembly on the dangers of the ongoing attempts by the USA and some European countries to relocate their military bases in the Sahel, where they have been kicked out by host nations, to Nigeria.

“As a party resolutely committed to the sovereignty, security and well-being of our nation, we feel it is our responsibility to voice our concerns and caution the Nigerian government against entering into any pacts that may endorse such arrangements.

The statement highlighted that the relocation of these foreign military bases to Nigeria poses a number of potential dangers that could adversely affect the security, sovereignty, and overall well-being of the country.

“We, as a party founded on the principles of “Total Liberation from Imperialism,” feel compelled to highlight these risks and strongly call on the Nigerian government to outrightly reject such proposals for our national interest,” Ishaq added.
