Atiku Abubakar

Former Vice President and 2019 presidential aspirant Atiku Abubakar has said he’ll end the Boko Haram insurgency if he’s elected.

Punch reports that Atiku said this on Tuesday while addressing supporters at the Forshams Hall, Maiduguri, Borno State.

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.

The former VP attended the event with the Director-General of his campaign organisation, Senator Gbenga Daniel.

    Good to see this huge support from the Borno people despite the failure of government and security in the state.
    A good product, markets itself and Atiku Abubakar has shown Nigerians he has all it takes to get Nigeria working and most importantly protect live snad properities of Nigerians.

    Are you not from the North East? So you are waiting to be President to help your kindred. This was how we waited for this skeleton now in Aso Rock, with no track record of achievement only to set us back 10 years
