The ex-President of Nigeria, General Olusegun Obasanjo have come out of the wood works again with critics over the Buhari led administration, bordering on failure to act quickly on matters of insecurities ravaging the country.

The Northern hemisphere of the country have been bombarded with series of insecurities, the likes of which have led the upper house of the federation to even invite the current Inspector General of Police to answer queries and questions of how he is planning to resolve the current situation.

Obasanjo, recently said the issues of Boko Haram insurgency and killer herdsmen could have been handled better to prevent the current situation.

The former President advised that the Buhari led administration should seek for International and local assistance, if current situations must come to an end.

Nigerian Tribune reports that Obasanjo fired his latest shot at President Buhari while speaking at the second session of the Synod held at the Cathedral of St. Paul’s Anglican Church, Oleh in Isoko South local government area of Delta state.

On insecurity, the elder statesman said “Every issue of insecurity must be taken seriously at all levels and be addressed at once without favouritism or cuddling.”

He added: Both Boko Haram and herdsmen acts of violence were not treated as they should at the beginning. “They have both incubated and.developed beyond what Nigeria can handle alone. They are now combined and internationalized with ISIS in control.

It is no longer an issue of lack of education and lack of employment for our youths in Nigeria which it began as, it is now West African fulanization, African Islamization and global organized crimes of human trafficking, money laundering, drug trafficking, gun trafficking, illegal mining and regime change.

Yet, we could have dealt with both earlier, and nib them in the bud, but Boko Haram boys were seen as rascals not requiring serious attention in administering holistic measures of stick and carrot.

And when we woke up to the reality, it was turned to industry for all and sundry to supply materials and equipment that were already outdated and that were not fit for active military purpose.

The former military head of state and one-time war commander during the Nigerian civil war, noted that poor motivation for soldiers is also not helping the fight against insecurity.

He said: Soldiers were poorly trained for the unusual mission, poorly equipped, poorly motivated, poorly led and made to engage in propaganda rather than achieving results.

Intelligence was poor and governments embarked on games of denials while paying ransoms which strengthened the insurgents and yet governments denied payments of ransoms.

Today, the insecurity issue has gone beyond the wit and capacity of Nigerian Government or even West African Governments.
