Boko Haram: Atiku Hints Probe of Nigerian Military
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has said that his government would be willing to investigate the military hierarchy as that will be the best way of tackling the Boko Haram insurgency in the North-East.

The PDP presidential candidate said this at a town hall meeting tagged: 
‘’The Candidates”, which was organised by the MacArthur Foundation in collaboration with NTA and DARIA media on Wednesday in Abuja.

He said that his government would not hesitate to deal with any senior officer who failed in his duty after being adequately funded by his government to fight the insurgency.

Atiku Abubarka Said :-
“We cannot continue to accept that kind of situation whereby commanders lose lives, lose equipment to terrorists and then nothing happens to them.

The PDP presidential candidate also said that he would be willing to investigate the report of Amnesty International indicting the military on allegations of tribalism.

He emphasized more in the need for government to invest more in education and health sectors as well as to bring in more private investors to compliment governments programmes in the health sector.

He said that if re-elected he would resend a bill to the National Assembly to prosecute any government at any level that managed education funds.

Addressing the issue of farmers and herdsmen clashes, Atiku Abubakar said there was need to enlighten the herders on feeding lots.

There is need for extensive public sensitisation of these herders to adopt this solution to minimize this crisis,’’ adding that this would not only reduce the crises, as it would also increase their income.
