Boko Haram: Let’s stop the conspiracy theories and face our common enemy
By Bulama Bukarti

When I hear people say things like Boko Haram is supported by the Presidency, I am like: which Presidency?

~The group was founded in 2003 during Obasanjo.
~It became violent in 2009 during Yar’Adua.
~It captured territory in 2013 – 2015 during Jonathan.
It continued under Buhari.

Some say Buhari has a soft spot for BH, but the truth is that BH suffered some of its worst defeats and lost most of its territory during Buhari. It’s Buhari that freed over a 100 Chibok girls. Buhari did well in the beginning but he declared victory too earlier, so BH started.

bouncing back from 2017 but Buhari and his people kept denying it until recently.

A recent sticking point is the DDR program that was initiated by Pres Jonathan and continued by Buhari. I think the Buhari admin needs to consult the community and improve its communication on it.

I don’t suspect any President or those close to him of supporting BH. It’s just that they’ve all failed to defeat it. Let’s stop the conspiracy theories and face our common enemy: Boko Haram and criminality. To stop violence, we must all hold our hands together.
