War against Boko Haram should have ended, says Atiku

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has said the decade long fight against terrorism in the country ought to have ended.

He promised to end insecurity and other social vices in the country if elected as president.

Atiku was the candidate of the main opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party, for the 2019 general elections.

The 74-year-old spoke during an interview on ‘Fitilar Siyasa,’ an Hausa current affairs programme on Progress Radio.

He said, “First of all, I will end Boko Haram because there’s no concrete reason why we are still fighting Boko Haram after 10 years. We had civil war, spent about 30 months and won the battle; why can’t we apply the same for Boko Haram?

“I will make sure Boko Haram becomes history in Nigeria and normalcy will return to the North-East and the nation at large.”

Atiku, who lamented the rising level of unemployment among the youth, pointed out that no meaningful development would be experienced if the youth remained unsettled.
