‘’when you keep soldiers in a troubled
spot for more than four years without making substantial changes how do you
expect positives results.’’ We had that some of those soldiers compromise and do
what they are not expected to do, no doubt, if you want things of such to
continue, you should expect more of such action. On our part, it is unthinkable
to believe that soldiers kept in a particular spot for four years and still counting
will not compromise with those enemies fighting Nigeria, don’t forget some of
them are part of us’’

This was the submission of ekiti state
Governor, Ayo Fayose when addressing journalist in Ado ekiti monitored by urban
express news correspondent. Continuing, Ayo Fayose said he refuse to believe
boko haram is tactically defeated, making reference to united states’ country
report on terrorism  2016, and transparency
international  ( TI) report
revealing  corruption in the military as
confirmation  of his stern position that
the federal government lied to Nigerians that the sect had been technically defeated
 “With over 120 Nigerians
killed by the Boko Haram insurgents in Borno State last month alone, it is
necessary for the federal government to face the reality that it has a very
long walk to victory in the fight against the insurgents,” Fayose said
In a statement in Ado Ekiti wednesday by
the governor’s Special Assistant on Public Communications, Lere Olayinka, the
governor alleged a possible ‘arranged’ release of some Chibok girls by the
federal government to divert attention of Nigerians and give the impression
that it was making progress in the fight against the insurgents.
The US Department of State’s Bureau for
Counterterrorism and Countering Violent Extremism had said in the report that
the inability of security agencies in Nigeria to share intelligence report
because of animosity is affecting the success in the fight against Boko Haram.
It went further to accuse the State
Security Services (SSS) of failure to share intelligence report with the
Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), thus making it harder to
investigate Boko Haram financing.
“This report by the US Government has
further lent credence to earlier revelation by the Transparency International
(TI) that despite President Muhammadu Buhari government’s anti-corruption
fight, corruption in the military is weakening Nigeria’s efforts to battle Boko
“The report is also a confirmation that
the SSS has abandoned its core responsibility of intelligence gathering and
turned itself into an instrument of political oppression, invading judges
residences in the night,” the governor said.
On how the insurgents can be defeated,
the governor said: “The first step will be for the federal government to stop
lying to Nigerians. The government must let the people know the situation on
ground so that genuine assistance can be offered.
“There should also be a periodic change
in military personnel so that officers don’t become institutions to themselves.
“As revealed by the TI, fight against
Boko Haram has become a cash cow for some top military officers and corrupt
politicians in the Buhari’s government, with the creation of fake defence
contracts and laundering the proceeds often labroad-UK, U.S. and elsewhere.
“The TI went further to state that the
military is left without vital equipment, insufficiently trained, low in morale
and under-resourced.
“The federal government must therefore
address the widespread corruption in the fight against Boko Haram as revealed
by the TI and also see to the welfare of the military personnel involved in the
While reiterating the need for the
government to say the truth always, Fayose said: “The government cannot keep
telling the public that Boko Haram had been decimated and the same Boko Haram
was able to kill over 120 people in just one state in one month.

“Few hours ago, the insurgents invaded a
community in Madagali Local Government Area in Adamawa State, killing more than
10 people and sacking the entire community.
“The truth like I said, two days ago is that the battle is not over yet. In
fact, it is raging fiercer than ever before. The gory killing of the oil
workers confirms this. The wanton destruction of lives andproperty all over the
place by Boko Haram also testifies to this fact.”
