Every Lie Has An Expiry Date. Today Is General Buhari’s Date!
Neither General #Buhari’s defence minister, nor the Governor of Borno, are in any position to say Nigeria is better today than in 2015. The only body that can judge is the Global Peace Index. And according to their Global Terror Index, Nigeria is more insecure today than in 2015. In 2014, we were the 4th most terrorised nation on Earth. Today, we are the 3rd.
Nigerians must not forget that in November 2018, Boko Haram attacked the 157 Task Force Battalion in Metele and killed about 100 soldiers. Just on October 16, 2020, Boko Haram attacked the army base in Jakana and killed 14 soldiers. To say this is an improvement over Jonathan is a lie.
Three attempts on the life of the Governor of Borno has been made by Boko Haram this year alone. Professor Zulum was shown crawling on the ground. Did that ever occur under Jonathan? I understand their penchant for propaganda, but Nigeria needs proper agenda!
We agree there was Boko Haram under Jonathan. But there was no banditry. You could also travel along Abuja-Kaduna road, and herdsmen were being dealt with. Under General #Buhari, nowhere in Northern Nigeria is safe. Nigerians don’t want comparisons. They want safety!
Bashir Magashi lied when he said Boko Haram controlled 20 Local Governments when General Buhari came in. The 2015 election held in EVERY LGA in Nigeria. How was that possible if Boko Haram controlled 20 LGAs? Every lie has an expiry date. Today is the date for Buhari’s regime
Finally, under Jonathan, the Nigerian Army was devastating Boko Haram. Under General Buhari, the Army is rehabilitating Boko Haram. Under Jonathan, Nigerian final year students graduated every year. But in 2020, ASUU strike frustrated students, while Boko Haram graduated!
