Former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, says he would use all at his disposal to ensure that Boko Haram deos not take place in any part of Nigeria if he were president. Abubakar recalls how a similar insurgent uprising was crushed when he served as vice president under the Obasanjo administration in 2002. The former vice president says Boko Haram insurgency requires steadfast and decisive leadership to be stopped.
Abubakar noted he would have used all at his disposal to ensure that Boko Haram did not take place in any part of North-Eastern Nigeria and elsewhere in the country, if he was in control of government, Leadership reports.
The former vice president disclosed this Yola on Tuesday, November 15, during the distribution of relief materials to over 50,000 Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) at American University of Nigeria (AUN) drawn from all over IDPs camps across the state to commemorate his 70th birthday celebrations.
He recalled how a similar insurgent uprising was crushed when he served as vice president under the Obasanjo administration in 2002.
“If you recalled, while we are in office in 2002, such a small upraising similar to this Boko Haram, reared their head in Yobe State, then, we smashed it immediately.
“We never heard anything about it again, until we left government”
Abubakar said the Boko Haram insurgency required steadfast and decisive leadership to be stopped. He regretted that Boko Haram took over seven of the 21 local government area of Adamawa during the previous administration.
He noted that what he did to prevent Boko Haram from completely over running Adamawa state is between him and Almighty God. The politician said the Adamawa peace Initiative was put together to ensure peaceful coexistence of Adamawa state and its people.
The relief materials were distributed at Saint Theresa Catholic Church, the Jamatu Nasrul Islam Headquarters and American University of Nigeria (AUN) in Yola.
