Buhari Is Right To Seek International Assistance To Battle Boko Haram - APC by sademola: 12:52pm On Jun 06, 2015
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has hailed President Muhammadu
Buhari for his shuttle diplomacy aimed at forging a stronger regional
front against the Boko Haram insurgency, saying the President should
be praised rather than pilloried for his efforts.

''Boko Haram, which started off as a Nigerian problem, has now assumed
a regional dimension, affecting many countries in West Africa.
Therefore, any solution to the crisis, if it is to endure, must be
regional in nature, with Nigeria taking the lead,'' the party said in
a statement issued in Abuja on Saturday by its National Publicity
Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.

Besides, it said since terrorism has assumed a global dimension, no
nation, not even the superpower United States, can fight the growing
menace alone.

''This is why even in our days in opposition, we advocated a regional
solution to the crisis,'' APC said.

The party said President Buhari's trip to Niger and Chad, two of the
countries worst hit by the Boko Haram insurgency, showed that he
understands the regional dimension that the insurgency has assumed,
and that for any effort by Nigeria to yield positive results, it must
seek the cooperation of its neighbouring countries.

It urged the President not to relent in his efforts to forge a
regional front against the terrorists, despite the misguided criticism
emanating from certain quarters.

''It is baffling that some opposition politicians wanted Nigeria to go
it alone against Boko Haram, even as the terrorist group has taken its
battle beyond the shores of Nigeria, to such countries as Cameroon,
Chad and Niger. It is common knowledge that the terrorists use these
countries as launch pads for their attacks against Nigeria, and vice
versa, and that they routinely engage in cross-boundary raids.

''It is common knowledge that Boko Haram's tentacles have spread as
far as Mali, the home base of the Movement for the Unity and Jihad in
West Africa (MUJAO), a splinter group of the Al-Qaida in the Islamic
Maghreb. It is no longer a secret that Boko Haram has now affiliated
itself to the Islamic State, seeing itself as the West African chapter
of the terror group. How then can Nigeria effectively deal with Boko
Haram without seeking the assistance of other concerned countries?''
APC queried

The party reminded the critics of the President's trips to Chad and
Niger that even the United States sought and has continued to seek a
global coalition against Al-Qaida and Islamic State, despite the
country's enormous military, economic and political powers.

APC said it was particularly delighted that President Buhari has
continued to insist that the Nigerian Army is capable of leading the
fight against Boko Haram, meaning that while there is nothing wrong in
seeking the cooperation of Nigeria's neighbours, the country has no
business hiring mercenaries to lead the battle.

''That vote of confidence in our military is the first step in the
efforts of the Buhari Administration to restore the glory of the
once-globally-acclaimed Nigerian military through morale boosting
measures that will include arming and kitting the troops effectively
and caring about their welfare so that they can more effectively
tackle the terrorists,'' it said.

Really? The same Buhari that Condemned Jonathan's administration for partnering with foreign soldiers?

Didn't Buhari promise to tackle BH alone? Almost 400 people have died since May 29 alone. How many more deaths before we will see to an end of this madness dear President Buhari?

Two are better than one, for if one falls, the other shall help him up. But woe to the one that is alone, for when he falls, he has no one to pull him up.

Nigeria has assisted so many countries through peace keeping operations. Why should we be too proud to ask for help? If we can accept monetary aid to combat diseases, why won't we accept military aids to combat terrorism? Why do countries form ally?

APC is right on this one.....we need all the help we can get.

God bless Nigeria.

Hypocrisy is the worst kind of corruption!

Reality has finally dawned on the liars, and all have seen that governance and cheap propaganda are world's apart.

Meanwhile, I wish the APC the best!

Please he is not right to seek assistance from Niger and Chad. The same PMB said Nigeria Army has been belittled by seeking assistance from Neighbouring Chad and Niger. he should use his own blueprint which was to call his boys to order. We cannot continue to sacrifice Nigerians. They said GEJ couldn't do it, yet they aren't doing any better.

His "Blueprint"? Which blueprint? Buhari has no blueprint. Did you hear him when he said... “careful studies are under way during this transition to identify the quickest, safest and most cost-effective way to bring light and relief to Nigerians.” during his inauguration speech? Buhari is learning on the job. He's a TRAINEE PRESIDENT! We may have to give him 3 Years for his traineeship

APC opposed everything Jonathan did!

Demonised every of his moves.

When he visited Chad over Boko Haram, they said he went to arrange for more bombs.
One day, Nigerians will realise that "CHANGE does not always mean progress.

It was this same Buhari that criticised the involvement of Niger and Chad in the fight against Boko Haram that's still resorting to begging them to help us in this war.

It’s a disgrace that neighbours must take on Boko Haram –Buhari

Presidential flag bearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Gen. Muhammadu Buhari is appalled that neighbouring Chad and Cameroun are turning out to be more successful at the battle front against Boko Haram than Nigeria.Nigeria’s poor performance,he says,is a disgrace.

“It’s a big disgrace for Nigeria. It is now Cameroon and Chad fighting the insurgency more than Nigeria. We will build the capacity and Nigeria should be able to secure its territorial integrity,” Buhari told Reuters.

Troops from neighbouring Chad, Niger and Cameroon, all much smaller and poorer than Nigeria, have been battling the terrorists who have seized territory in Borno State.
