A former lawmaker representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Senator Shehu Sani, on Thursday, lambasted the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, for saying terrorism may persist for another 20 years in Nigeria.
Buratai had made the statement just days after over 43 rice farmers were killed by Boko Haram terrorists in Borno State.
Reacting to the statement, the former lawmaker, who tweeted on his verified Twitter handle on Thursday, said the statement by Buratai showed the ‘bankruptcy of new ideas and strategies’ to win the insurgency war.
According to Sani, “Telling our people that the insurgency will last twenty years after repeatedly misleading claims of victories attest 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.”
