The Senate Majority Leader, Ali Ndume, (APC, Borno South) has said people from Boko Haram affected areas have learnt unforgettable lesson, realized their mistakes and would never allow such to happen again.
Mr. Ndume, in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria ( NAN) in Yola on Saturday, said that affected communities who were forced to leave their villages and towns are now anxious to return home and were ready to fight back.
NAN reports that Mr. Ndume was in Yola , where he visited thousands of Internally Displaced Persons mostly from Gwoza and other local government areas from Borno in some IDPs camps at the outskirts of Yola.
“We have suffered a lot and our people have learned a lesson from this ungodly crisis. We will never allow such barbaric act to happen again, our eyes are open now.
“Our people are ready to fight back now to reclaim the remaining of their villages and towns as well as their freedom of living with one another in peace and dignity,” Mr. Ndume said.
He said the lasting solution for Boko Haram insurgency was to take the fight to their hide out and wipe them out completely.
He explained that most of the IDPs camps he visited in Adamawa were willing and anxious to return to their respective ancestral homes.
He said that relief materials worth million of Naira were distributed to the IDP’s, adding that the visit was with a team of top officials of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA).
On the rejection of about $30 billion presidential loan, he said the Senate did not reject the loan, but want the executive arm to attach all necessary documents to enable the Red Chamber go through and approve.
On the ongoing fight against corruption by President Buhari, he said the development was a winnable war.
“I am confident, at the end, President Muhammadu Buhari and the country are going to win the war against corruption,” Mr. Ndume said.
