Nigeria needs not borrow to fight Boko Haram – Buhari

An All Progressive Congress, APC, presidential aspirant, Muhammadu Buhari, has faulted President Goodluck Jonathan’s moves to borrow money to fight the ongoing Insurgency that is bedevilling some northern states.

Mr. Buhari, who was in Kano to sympathise with victims of Friday bomb blast, said Nigeria did not borrow to win the civil war that kept the country as a single entity.

He said besides corruption and mismanagement of public funds, there is no cogent reason for Nigeria to borrow money to fight insurgency.

Mr. Buhari said Nigeria could generate enough funds to purchase necessary military equipment. He said the real problems that militate against fighting the insurgency is lack of political will and diversion of national treasury.

He lamented that despite complaints of lack of weapons by troops on the battle field, not much has been done to address it.

    Dumbo will not visit Kano because he planned the onslaught so rioting would break out following the murder of Sanusi and the Chief Imam in the iconic Mosque, but his evil plans fell flat again. Dumbo is a psychopath, an unbalanced character to whom human lives means very little. Let him follow in Buhari’s footsteps if he’s a true man, not even leader. Drunkard!
