Former Military President General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida has said that he has confidence in the ability of President Muhammadu Buhari to defeat Boko Haram so that Nigeria can truly assume her greatness in the comity of nations.
 
Babangida also adviced the President to go all out and rout the Boko Haram insurgents that have ravaged the Northeast of Nigeria and killed over 12,000 people in their over 5 years of brutal reign.
 
“The President, General Muhammadu Buhari as a Military Officer, understands the import of these altruistic suggestions and I trust that he will take steps to apply some of them that fit into the mainstream strategies already in place, IBB said.
 
"The approach has to be a holistic one, well coordinated with full onslaught launched by the day and night to rout these insurgents to surrender,” the former president added.
 
Babangida, in a Sallah message which he personally signed and released to journalists yesterday, enjoined all Nigerians to be strong in their unison against the insurgency.
He stressed the need to device new ways and means of confronting the insurgency, without making such initiatives public knowledge, expressing his belief that the media has a greater role to play in the management of information.
 
“On a good day, as is often said, the idea of taking some Boko Haram suspects and prisoners to Anambra State should not be public knowledge, if we are truly serious about information management,” he noted.
 
He called on the government to also cater for the families of the security personnel who died beyond what he called the present tokenism, noting that it would serve as incentive to others who are still in the trenches.
 
“The President, General Muhammadu Buhari as a Military Officer, understands the import of these altruistic suggestions and I trust that he will take steps to apply some of them that fit into the mainstream strategies already in place. The approach has to be a holistic one, well coordinated with full onslaught launched by the day and night to rout these insurgents to surrender.”
 
He said: “The renewed interest of the international communities in helping out with superior military hardware towards combating this menace is a welcome development. Our Islamic clerics should do more in their daily sermons to prevent new converts and recruits into this deadly group. Both religions preach the virtues of good and pious life tempered with the fear of God or Allah. We must continuously preach sermons that deliver the right messages to our people without ambiguity.”
