How To End Boko Haram - APC Aspirant
BEVERLY HILLS, CA, April 13, (THEWILL) - An aspirant wishing to represent Maiduguri Metropolitan Council (MMC) of Borno State in the House of Representatives in next year's general election, Alhaji Mohammed Bukar, said on Sunday that the fulfillment of campaign promises by politicians in the country was the necessary panacea bringing the over four years Boko Haram insurgency to an end.
The aspiring lawmaker-cum banker added that the sincerity of politicians and an end to the game of deception for electoral gains were also key in ending the crisis that is currently ravaging the North-eastern part of the country.
Bukar said politicians should address the growing poverty and unemployment among Borno youths, which he said, are real cause of the Boko Haram insurgency.
Maintaining that it was wrong for politicians to forget their campaign promises soon after their election, Bukar, who is also a top official of the First City Monument Bank (FCMB), accused Borno lawmakers of betraying the trust of their people by not keeping to the campaign promises.
He advised that all the campaign promises made to the people by serving legislators at the National and State Houses of Assemblies must be fulfilled to their various constituents without any excuse.
Maintaing that he was answering the clarion call of his people to contest under the ruling All Progressive Congress ( APC ), Bukar alleged that the failure of some legislators from Borno state to effectively address 'abject poverty, unemployment and insecurity' of lives and property for over a decade had contributed to the insurgency.
"I am not raising alarms on the rising rates of poverty, unemployment and insecurity among our people in Borno State.
It is my people that wanted me to serve by representing them at the National Assembly on the platform of All Progressives Congress (APC),"he said.
He insisted that his representation would be based on the fulfillments of all the campaign promises made on the provision of basic social services, like water and electricity supplies, health care delivery, roads; and equipped functional secondary and primary schools.
"These are the positive changes that we want or intend to bring to our people; and implement them in addressing poverty, unemployment and insecurity to lives and property in not only the Maiduguri metropolis, but the state in general," he disclosed.
