Oyogist.com has learned that a former Kaduna State Senator Shehu Sani, seriously criticized the present Chief of Army Staff, Lt Gen Tukur Buratai, for his claims that the Boko Haram insurgency could last for another 20 years in the country.
Sani said Buratai statement shows that he lacks fresh ideas over security strategies in the country and thus called for his resignation.
The senator wrote on Twitter, “When the protesters needed you, you were not there; when you needed the protesters, they are not here.
“Telling our people that the insurgency will last 20 years after repeated misleading claims of victories attests to the failure of those saddled with the responsibility of leading the fight.
“It also signifies the resignation and bankruptcy of new ideas and strategies.”
The Chief of the Army Staff, earlier wrote on his official Facebook page, few days after the inhumane Killings of rice farmers in Borno State by suspected Bokoharam members that the insurgency could last 20 more years in the country.
Buratai had written, “There is the likelihood of terrorism persisting in Nigeria for another 20 years.
“It only depends on the level of escalation and the appropriate responses by all stakeholders, both civil and military authorities.”Citizens’ responsibility is equally important and imperative. All must cooperate to contain the lingering insecurity. Let there be collective action and responsibility.” He wrote.
