While speaking at his country home at Igbere, Abia state, after a meeting of All progressive Congress (APC) representatives, former Abia State governor, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, said the President Buhari's administration is doing a lot to see that activities of Boko Haram and herdsmen become history.
According to Daily Sun, the influential politician who said late former President, Umaru Musa Yar'Adua had wanted to address the issue of Boko Haram but could not, called on President Muhammadu Buhari to give a realistic strategy on how the insurgency problem would be solved.
He explained that when he was Abia governor, the state was not safe and that he brought a strategy, sat down with Abia people, the Nigeria Police, the community and everybody and they fought and stopped armed robbers who terrorised the state. They ran away and the state became a safe place to stay, he said.
"I know president Buhari will do it. President Buhari is a military General; he understands war, he want to reassess the situation by himself as a commander, as you can understand that fighting Boko Haram and herdsmen is like war," Kalu said.
Orji Kalu explained that Nigerians have been living with herders for a long time and there was no trouble unlike what obtains presently.
"What is going on, today, is politically motivated. I was born and brought up in Aba, I know Ama Hausa, the home of northerners. If you go to Kano, you see Sabon Gari, the home of the people who went there.
"The question is; 'what has gone wrong?' That is the fundamental question we should be asking. What is happening today is sabotage of the democratic process. We are calling on those perpetrating them to stop or the long arm of the law will soon get hold on them.
