Defeating insurgency and Buhari's winning strategy

Editor’s note: Nkechi Odoma in this opinion piece gives an insight on the various factors militating against President Muhammadu Buhari’s fight against corruption, insurgency and militancy in Nigeria. She also writes on new strategies Nigeria can employ to curb the activities of the militants in the Niger Delta region.

Militants are running riot down south and their activities further undermine the economy. If we think critically and with the benefits of what we see unfolding in Venezuela and other economies that were dependent on crude oil revenue the realization will dawn on us that there are a lot of things to be grateful for. Security is the greatest thing we should be appreciative of and acknowledge the efforts of President Muhammadu Buhari for working to deliver his electoral promises. Anyone familiar with the lightning speed with which Boko Haram was advancing and capturing territories prior to Mr President’s assumption of office will remember that the projection was for the terror group to have overrun the larger part of the country one year from the referenced period. Cities as far south as Lagos and Port Harcourt were already bracing for the possibility of attacks. Those preparations turned out to be nothing more than drills as Mr President brought on board officers that have displayed unrivalled loyalty and coordination that has helped Nigeria tame what was its worst demon. The confidence the Commander in Chief has in his military aides was not misplaced as proven by the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Yusuf Buratai, chief of air staff, air marshal Sadique Abubakar and the other chiefs who have treated their exploits in the anti-terror war as the first proof of their loyalty to their boss who is leading the charge to end the that group’s reign of terror. These are the men helping President Buhari to stage a repeat of the crushing that sent the Maitatasine insurgency into extinction. The destruction Boko Haram terrorists left in their wake is being addressed with rebuilding efforts to which the international community, international and local NGOs, the other two tiers of government and others have pledged support and life could return to normal in these places in the shortest time possible.
