The presidential aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC), General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd), has voiced his concerns over the fact that Cameroonian and Chadian military forces are gaining the upper hand in the fight against militant group Boko Haram compared to the Nigerian military.
Buhari, who spoke to international news agency Reuters, says Nigeria’s poor performance in the fight against insurgency is a disgrace.
“It’s a big disgrace for Nigeria. It is now Cameroon and Chad fighting the insurgency more than Nigeria. We will build the capacity and Nigeria should be able to secure its territorial integrity,” he said.
Recall that troops from neighbouring Chad, Niger Republic and Cameroon, have been battling the terrorists even in Nigerian territory.
