Deputy President of the Senate, Omo-Agege, is of the opinion that Boko Haram is coming back and they are mainly responsible for the country’s present state of insecurity.
He disclosed this during the screening of President Muhammadu Buhari’s ministerial nominees in the upper chamber of the National Assembly today.
His words, “You know, General, that one of the biggest problems we face in this country today is the problem of insecurity.
“You’ll also recall that before Mr President (Buhari) took office in 2015, most of the northeast was ravaged and taken over by Boko Haram. But the president, drawing from his experience as a retired General, was able to wipe out, for the most part, or at the very least degraded the capacity of, Boko Haram. But there’s this resurgence of late.
“Not only is it resurgence of Boko Haram, but insecurity in that state including banditry in most of the states.
“As a retired General, should you find yourself privileged to serve in the Defence Ministry, what would you do differently than what the former occupant did?”
Responding, Magashi revealed that he’ll make sure his troops are battle ready to end the battle against terrorism.
“What I’ll do differently is to ensure that rules are obeyed, procedures are followed, welfare is maintained, and every other thing that’ll make troops happy and motivated to perform.”
