Earlier this week, once again, Boko Haram took innocent lives of over 43 school children in the Federal Government College in Buni Yadi. Senator Bukola Saraki sends his condolences to grieving families and shares his thoughts on how to defeat Boko Haram sect.
Saraki shared a successful way to fight Boko Haram, "As with all insurgencies, fighting Boko Haram is not just for the military to tackle. The success for Nigeria in fighting Boko Haram and terrorism in general is largely dependent upon two other key issues: leadership and political cooperation."
Senator Sakari is sure that, first of all, the President "must urgently provide all the necessary resources allocated by our Government to help ensure our nation’s security and must also work together with the Governors of the State to ensure a unified approach to combating this menace."
And secondly, he underlined that "political cooperation is the responsibility of all politicians."
"We all must understand our duties as elected representatives of our people and cooperate politically to bridge region and religion. We must also appeal to the Governors of Adamawa, Borno and Yobe, to all leaders from the region and to all opposition leaders to cooperate with federal Government. We have to fully support the military and provide all funds required by the security agencies. This must be a priority for both the Senate and the House of Representatives," Saraki said.
He believes that with the continued attacks in northern Nigeria, the support from each and every Nigerian is vitally important for combating violent extremism.
He also believes that the fight to protect people should be prioritised over domestic politics.
Saraki said that "the military can fight them but defeating them will take more than guns and bombs. Success will only happen when every leader, Governor, Senator and the President sit together and combine their political will to put an end to these senseless killings."
