Vice Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Yemi Osinbajo, a professor, has said his principal, Muhammadu Buhari, would personally lead the battle against insurgents rampaging the northeast, if the APC wins next year presidential election.
Osinbajo in an interview with Channels Television on Sunday said, “Fighting insurgency requires the Commander in Chief to lead from the front by providing leadership.”
He said unlike President Goodluck Jonathan and the PDP, Buhari and the APC would not politicize the security challenge.
He said that, “Instead of politicizing the issue, APC will galvanise all support and ensure that the threat to the territorial integrity of the country is put on check, and General Buhari will ensure that the entire nation is mobilized irrespective of party affiliation to solve the problem.”
“We will not be looking for the faults of the PDP or accuse them of sponsoring it as is presently the case, everyone knows that the opposition today is not responsible for the insurgency.”
The Law Professor also said an APC government would equip the military for effective operations “We have some of the best soldiers one can find anywhere.” Osinbajo said the Nigerian Military has the capability to “wipe out Boko Haram in days, all you need is to equip them well”.
