Gen Buratai commends President Muhammadu Buhari for defeating Boko Haram

The Nigerian Ambassador to the Benin Republic, His Excellency, Lieutenant General Tukur Yusufu Buratai has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for his support to the military that led to the defeat of the Boko Haram terrorists. He made the commendation on Friday in Yola, Adamawa State, at the 24th, 25th, and 26th combined convocation lecture of Modibbo Adama University, Yola.

Buratai, who was the Guest Lecturer, at the occasion, the current Service Chiefs are doing tremendously well because of the immense support and strategic direction of President Muhammadu Buhari.

This he added, led to the defeat of the Boko Haram terrorists and other successes being recorded. He went further to state that however, the underdevelopment of the North-East was the major factor fuelling insurgency and insecurity in the geopolitical zone.

“Any country that does not ensure the development of its people would have security challenges.

“We should not rely on the military option as the only way to resolve our security challenges.

“We must address the ideological, economic, social, and political factors.

“My recent diplomatic foray has further sharpened my views on the urgent need for military, as well as the non-military solution to the lingering and needless conflict”, he said.

Buratai also said that the situation required synergy, political will, sacrifice, and commitment of government, civil society, traditional rulers, and all stakeholders to curtail the sporadic attacks and bring the conflict to a permanent conclusion.

“Central to the argument of this paper is that security and development in the North-East should not be addressed individually but as one intrinsic element and that development is a requirement for stabilization,” he said.

Buratai pointed out that anyone that only relied only on the military and other instruments of coercion to resolve an insurgency such as Boko Haram terrorism is bound to continue to suffer insecurity. (NAN)
