Boko Haram: Buhari Gives Army Chiefs 3 Months to Vanquish Boko Haram

President Muhammadu Buhari has given the Nigerian Army Chiefs three months to bring the Boko Haram terrorist activities to an end. Vanquishing the Boko Haram sect was among President Buhari main campaign points. He was known to be a very vocal critic of former President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration.

While swearing in the new service chiefs on Thursday after they were cleared by the Senate, Buhari said to the service chiefs ”You need to brace up and continue to team up with other stakeholders to come up with a well coordinated joint effort which will bring a desired end to these insurgencies within three months.”

He gave the chiefs a mandate to end the scourge in 3 months. “The activities of these misguided groups and individuals have resulted in wanton destruction of lives and properties of our citizens and a disruption of social economic lives of millions of Nigerians.”

Buhari  also said “in particular you must protect innocent civilians and respect the rights of combatants.”

It will be recalled that Buhari during his campaign promised to end the scourge within two months of taking office. He has now spent more than two months and the attacks only got worse the moment he took over. This three months ultimatum now extends the two months to five months.

There have been talks of the government being willing to negotiate with the sect. Meanwhile, the President of Chad Mr Idriss Deby has come out to categorically say that there should be no negotiation with the sect.

With the new deadline, Nigerians, the whole of Africa and indeed the world will be paying close attention to see if President Buhari will be able to fulfill his promise this time.
