Former Vice President and 2019 presidential aspirant Atiku Abubakar has said he’ll end the Boko Haram insurgency if he’s elected, Punch reports.
Atiku said this on Tuesday while addressing supporters at the Forshams Hall, Maiduguri, Borno State. According to him,
Nigeria ended its civil war in only two and a half years despite the thick forest in the South-East. I wonder why the war against insurgency took us nine years; there must be something wrong somewhere.
If elected, I will not allow any commander to tell me stories, we must end insurgency within the shortest possible time because the insurgency has crippled everything in the North-East.
