Senator Muhammadu Ali Ndume, an aspirant for Senate presidency, on Thursday, May 30, advised President Muhammadu Buhari to pay singular attention to massive security in all parts of the country.
Speaking in Maiduguri, Borno state capital, Ndume told newsmen that Nigerians are fed up with news that Boko Haram insurgents had been degraded, rather, according to him, the people want to hear that the terrorists have been totally defeated, Daily Trust reports.
The senator wailed that every part of Nigeria is bedeviled with the menace of insecurity. He said: “The federal government should leave every other thing for now and concentrate squarely on security.
“It is very important now for government to be determined to addressing the issue of security,” maintaining that without security, nothing development can be achieved.
“We are tired of hearing ‘Boko Haram attack has been repelled’ or ‘Boko Haram has been degraded’; we want to hear Boko Haram have been completely defeated and the war has ended.”
He stated that the federal government and security agencies in the country should set a deadline for insurgency and make efforts to meet the target.
He said: “The black spots of the war are known; Sambisa Forest; Gwoza and Mandata mountains; and the Lake Chad regions; these are where the insurgents are now concentrated; troops should be massively deployed there.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lieutenant General Tukur Yusuf Buratai had said that the Boko Haram insurgent group had been defeated by the nation’s military.
