A Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress-APC and former Governor of Lagos State, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has called on military to deploy different strategy in the fight against insurgency.
Bola Tinubu made the call when he paid a sympathy visit to Borno state Governor, Babagana Zulum over the killing of farmers by Boko Haram insurgents.
The APC leader noted that under insurgency governance would hardly excel.
“That’s not religion, it is not in our religion (Islam), it is not in Christianity either, it is an act of wickedness. I want His Excellency and members of the state executive to see this visit not as a condolence or sympathy only, but as a solidarity and commitment that we must defeat all evil doers”
He commended Governor Zulum’s commitment and dedication to the security of the lives of citizens of the state.
Bola Tinubu advised that to deny further recruitment of vulnerable youth into insurgency, government must come up with social protection measures that will take them off the streets.
“We have to remove these unemployed youth from the streets, from been available for evil doers for recruitment”.
Governor Zulum thanked the national leader of the APC for the special visit while reiterating the commitment of his administration to doing whatever it can, towards protecting the lives and property of Borno people.
