It’s A ‘Big Disgrace’ That Chad, Cameroon, Are Fighting Boko Haram More Than Nigeria – Buhari

muhammadu-buhariThe presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd), has expressed disappointment that neighbouring Chad and Cameroun are turning out to be more successful at the battle front against Boko Haram than Nigeria.

The inability of the country’s leadership to secure Nigeria’s territorial integrity, he said, is a “big 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”, the APC candidate told Reuters on Friday.

Troops from neighbouring Chad, Niger and Cameroon, all much smaller and poorer countries than Nigeria, have been battling the terrorists who have claimed control of local governments and villages in Borno State, northeast Nigeria.

On the February 14 presidential elections, Buhari said that he was committed to seeking redress through the courts if there are irregularities in the voting, promising not to call his followers into the streets.

“I’m optimistic that I won’t lose. But we signed an undertaking that it will be violence free”, Buhari said. “We are attempting to stabilise a multi-party democratic system”.

On the speculations that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is under intense pressure to shift the polls, Buhari said “There will be no delay. But if INEC is compromised, then, it will be too bad”.

He again reiterated his administration’s plan, if elected, to tackle corruption within the Nigerian National Petroleum Corp (NNPC) and to reopen an investigation into missing crude oil revenues of around $20 billion.

He also vowed to tackle the theft of crude oil tapped from pipelines in the Niger Delta.

“Our main objective is to secure the country. We will not tolerate insurgency, sabotage of the economy by the blowing up of installations, by stealing crude and so on…. All these things will be things of the past”, Buhari assured.
