Shehu Sani former member of the National Assembly has condemned the Nigerian Government and military over the statement credited to the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, that insurgency, and terrorism may continue in Nigeria for another 20 years.
Shehu Sani marveled why this should be coming out at this point after several years of repeated claims of victories over dissents.
According to Sani, who represented Kaduna Central District in the 8th Assembly, Buratai’s comment authenticates the failure of those encumbered with the duty of leading the war against terrorism in the nation.
Boko Haram members had at the weekend beheaded about 110 rice farmers in Zabarmari, Jere Local Government Area of Borno State.
However, Buratai noted that Nigerians generally misunderstood what insurgency and terrorism mean.
And in reaction, Senator Sani said,
“Telling our people that the Insurgency will last twenty years after repeatedly misleading claims of victories attest to the failure of those saddled with the responsibility of leading the fight. Also signifies the resignation and bankruptcy of new ideas and strategies.”
