“I WilI Crush Boko Haram In 2 Months” -Buhari Insist

“I WilI Crush Boko Haram In 2 Months” –
Buhari Insist

In an interview with CNN yesterday,
Nigeria’s president-elect Gen. Buhari
promised to ‘plug’ corruption and crush
Boko Haram in 2 months. He told CNN’s
Amanpour from Abuja last night;
“We know how they started and where they
are now and we will rapidly give attention to
security in the country. And I believe we will
effectively deal with them in two months
when we get into office. We will be needing
the cooperation of neighbouring countries
such as Cameroon, Chad and Niger. There
were efforts made by the President
Goodluck Jonathan administration, but it
was not good enough and it came rather
late”.

“We expected the Federal Government four
years ago to sit down with these countries
and make sure they do not allow the
terrorists free movement across borders,
training facilities and movement of
weapons. These were only done a few
months ago and we have seen how
Cameroon, Chad and Niger are fighting
Boko Haram more than Nigeria is doing
until recently. Really we have seen enough
and we have enough law enforcement to
face Boko Haram squarely.”

Buhari said the military didn’t perform as
well as they should have because of
corruption in the system.

“They will…if you recall, the Nigerian
soldiers out of all ethical expectations were
granting interviews to foreign journalists,
saying they were being sent to fight
terrorists without proper weapons. And
then the National Assembly attempted to
conduct a hearing to find out how much
money was approved for training and
weapon in the last three years but that hearing was scuttled by the administration.”
