The chief of Army staff, Lt. Gen. Kenneth Minimah on Tuesday told the press that they are yet to see the Chibok girls in all the towns that they have recaptured. He said this after the meeting in the state house between the chairman of the independent national electoral commission, INEC, Prof. Attahiru Jega, the Presidency and the security Chiefs. The meeting was chaired by the Vice President Namadi Sambo.
According to General Minimah ‘Yobe and Adamawa have been liberated completely and we look forward to the restatement of the structures of government and governance. I am sure you know that in Borno state out of the 27 local governments, we have 3 local governments remaining , Abadam,Kalabaldi and Gwoza and we are optimistic that with time we will liberate those local governments.
When asked if elections could hold in those areas, Minimah said he was not competent to speak on that. He said INEC will to re assess the areas liberated. ‘It is our wish and we pray God gives that to us, but war is war. War sometimes is not fought on some platform of permutations’, he said.
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
