Obasanjo lauds Buhari over war against terrorism

29 March 2016, 16:32

Abuja - Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has praised President Muhammadu Buhari on his efforts to end the Boko Haram insurgency in the North East.

Obasanjo commended Buahri’s efforts during a visit to Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno State at Government House, Maiduguri.

“I know that he (Buhari) is very, very concerned about the insurgency. He has got it right that first of all, there must be military ascendency over the insurgents,” he said.

This came as Borno State governor, Kashim Shettima, poured encomiums on former President Olusegun Obasanjo, describing him as a man with rare courage committed to national unity and development, saying he was convinced that Obasanjo would have rescued the missing Chibok girls if he were the president at the time the insurgents seized the 279 girls from their hostels.

Obasanjo expressed optimism that the insurgency would be over soon, going by the successes recorded by the military in recent time.

He condoled with the state government over loss of lives and property to the insurgency.

Governor Shettima however revealed that ex-President Goodluck Jonathan abandoned the over 200 girls who were abducted from Chibok for about 19 days after they were taken.
