Elder statesman, Alhaji Tanko Yakasai, urged President Muhammadu Buhari to admit that his strategies for fighting Boko Haram insurgency had failed.
Yakasai, in a telephone interview with Punch in Abuja, on Wednesday, said, “It is disheartening to hear from no less a person than the Chief of Army Staff that the army which he commands is to blame for recent losses in the battle field.

Yakassai recall that in 2014, Buhari promised Nigerians that if elected president he would lead the war against Boko Haram and eliminate them within the six months of his administration. But according to him, four years after the Boko Haram terrorists are still strong despite claims by the government that they have been eliminated.

“That the head of an army that is the backbone of the fight is making such a statement is disappointing. Before President Muhammadu Buhari assumed office in 2015, the Boko Haram insurgency was our main security challenge.
“Today, four years down the line, Boko Haram is still strong despite claims to the contrary by those in government. We have no less than five other active serious security challenges confronting us, instead of reducing , our security challenges have multiplied.

“The President must admit that his strategy has failed and that he needs to return to the drawing board by first, changing his security team- perhaps the new team will come with bright new ideas to deal with the problem.”
