The security problems in the Northeastern region of Nigeria has suffered a setback in the last few days as Boko Haram and ISWAP launched a coordinated attacks on Geidam in Yobe state killing a teacher and also the military camp in Mainok, Borno state. About 20 soldiers lost their lives in the attack.
The Governor of Niger state, Mallam Bello has cried out that terrorists have taken over 42 communities in the states, especially in Shiroro area and Kaure that is only two hours away from Abuja. He said the Terrorists hoisted their flags in the communities while some of the people there have fled.
Nigeria is at war with Terrorists and the Nigerian Army with the help of the Airforce are trying their best to defeat them. However, in the last couple of days, Politicians like Dr Bukola Saraki has urged President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC to seek Foreign help to tackle the insurgents.
Even though I believe getting foreign help is going to help our soldiers tremendously, President Muhammadu Buhari still needs to do something to boost the morale of our brave soldiers.
Goodluck Jonathan in military camp
Some years back when Dr Goodluck Jonathan was still the President, he paid a visit to some military camps in Borno state, one of the hot zones of Boko Haram operations during his tenure. He did that to boost the morale of the soldiers and we saw the effect on how the military silenced the insurgents during the general election.
As a retired Major General in the Nigerian Army, President Buhari should visit military camps in the battle front to pat our soldiers on the back. For example, the president can visit the military camp in Mainok, Borno state that was attacked by Boko Haram some days ago.
I believe it will mean a lot to these soldiers and it will also tell them that Nigerians are with them in this fight. They are not alone.
