Abuja - The Transition Monitoring Group (TMG) has tasked the incoming government to change the current disputed approach to the fight against Boko Haram.
The call coincided with commemorations of the kidnapping of the over 200 schoolgirls Boko Haram abducted in Chibok, Borno State.
The pro-democracy organisation appealed for their speedy and safe return from captivity, tasking incoming leadership on proactive attitude towards the security of lives and property.

"We cannot run away from the fact that the audacious assault by Boko Haram on Nigerians, is the most glaring manifestations of the colossal failure of governance at all levels.
"The task now belongs to Nigeria's new political leaders to soberly reflect on the reality of chronic insecurity that Nigeria has endured in
the last six years. TMG demands of the incoming leadership a proactive attitude towards the security of lives and property," TMG Chairman Ibrahim Zikirullahi.
He said the act by Boko Haram terrorists was a direct assault on civilization and the noble venture of girl child education.
"The terrorists sought to hang on our collective conscience the guilt of a people who would forget, move on or give up on the girls. One year on, Nigeria, and the world has refused to forget," said Zikirullahi.
There are contrasting reports as to the whereabouts of the minors.
Boko Haram has claimed they have been married off, while there are reports they might have been killed or used as suicide bombers.
