NBA-AGC Sessions: (2) Military Business

Ever wondered what the business of the Military is apart from safeguarding lives and property? A revealing insight into the confluence of military inventions and their civilian applications as a tool for economic growth will help Conferees understand the place of the Nigerian Military better.

The roles of a country’s armed forces are entrenched in her Constitution. The defence of the territorial integrity and other core interests of the nation form the major substance of such roles. Section 217-220 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (As amended) addresses the role of the Nigeria’s military systems.

The fact that military systems often involve a political-strategic dimension further portrays the complexity of the field, which is strengthened by the scarcity and opacity of information on defense and the military industries. Military spending constitutes a very peculiar category of public expenditure mostly because defense is generally regarded in the economic literature as the state’s sovereign function par excellence.

Generally speaking, most lawyers don’t know where they come in or stand on the bridge between military and civilian economic tools and how to navigate through the mist. Mostly is the problem of enlightenment on the dynamics of the business and economics of the military.

The 21st century lawyer has such a huge advantage in service delivery and has every chance to start something new to set self apart and Military Law is not exempt.
