Atiku promises to end Boko Haram permanently


Former Vice President and Peoples Democratic Party presidential hopeful, Atiku Abubakar has pledged to bring to permanent end the Boko Haram insurgency in Nigeria within the shortest possible time if elected in 2019.
Atiku made the pledge yesterday in Maiduguri while addressing Borno state PDP members and supporters at Forshams Conference Hall, Maiduguri.
“Nigeria ended its civil war in only two and half years in spite of the thick forest in the South east.
I wonder why the war against Boko Haram insurgency took us nine years.
There must be something wrong somewhere.
“If elected I will make every commander to tell me his story on how we must end the Boko Haram insurgency within the shortest possible time because the insurgency has crippled everything in the Northeast,” Atiku said.
According to him, “Nigeria is one of the poorest nations in the world, if not the poorest and northeast is the most backward region in Nigeria.
You all know Boko Haram insurgency is associated with poverty.
“So if I am elected president of Nigeria in 2019, we have to address the problem of poverty and unemployment in the Northeast first, then tackle the issue of Boko Haram insurgency which has ravaged the North east region,” Atiku added.
Also speaking at the political gathering, the Director General, Atiku Campaign Organisation, Senator Gbenga Daniel, said they were in Maiduguri on consultation with PDP stakeholders in Borno state over the political aspiration of the former vice president.
He said: “This is the time for the people of the Northeast to produce the next president of Nigeria.
If you miss this opportunity to produce the next president, it will be regrettable.
So I call on you to support one of your own
