“Put A Stop To B’Haram and Banditry” Wike Tells FG

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has called on the Federal Government to bring to a permanent halt insurgency and insecurity in Nigeria.

Gov. Wike made this statement yesterday while laying wreath to commemorate the remembrance anniversary of the Armed Forces Day in Nigeria.

He said  there’s the need for change of approach and tactics especially from the service chiefs if we are to win the war.

In his words, “A country is as strong as its Armed Forces. Her inability to defeat the Boko Haram insurgency despite years of full military engagement shows that all is not well with our approaches and commitments to the battle against the internal insecurity.

“Today, therefore, also raises the need for all of us to be worried by the deteriorating security situation across the country and restate the call on the Federal Government to do everything necessary to bring the security threat by Boko Haram and bandits to a decisive end in the shortest possible time.

“We thank the service chiefs for their efforts so far in the battle against the insurgents. But we also align with the concern of citizens that having seemingly reached their wit’s end, they should now give way for fresh hands and ideas to give the fight the impetus that it so strongly needs to ensure that Boko Haram and banditry are comprehensively defeated and smoked out of existence.

 The time has come for the Federal Government to stop the pretence, change strategy, seek help from our friends and confront the urgency of the internal insecurity situation in Nigeria with every weaponry at its disposal to stop the killing, free all hostages and improve the physical security of our country for all Nigerians” he added.
