Despite acknowledging the increment in the ration cash allowance, General Musa expressed the view that the troops, who tirelessly stand guard 24 hours a day for the security of others, deserve more. He emphasized the demanding nature of their responsibilities and suggested that their dedication merits a higher level of financial support. The Chief of Defense Staff drew attention to the income disparity among soldiers, specifically mentioning that private soldiers earn less than 50 thousand naira monthly.

He recognized that the troops play a crucial role in maintaining security, highlighting the sacrifices they make for the well-being of others.

He said, “Some years back our ration cash allowance was 200 naira, it was raised to 500 naira, now it is 1200 naira. And I am sure if I asked you to use 1000 naira to feed yourself for a day you know how much that money is. I know the country is going through so much but I think the troops deserve more, somebody who is standing 24 hours to make sure that other people can sleep.
