Buhari To Resign if Boko Haram Wins?

Another campaign talk on Aljazeera left most people gasping for air yesterday as the Nigeria's president changed the Boko Haram narrative.

Mr Buhari has not learned that a good leader promises less and delivers much.

Talk is cheap and he does not have a clear idea about the difference between a conventional army and a terrorist group.

First, Boko Haram has no rules that apply to modern warfare.Just as it remains visible.

"When the raining season starts,they would not have a place to hide.We will flush them out" Mr Buhari told Aljazeera .

There have been 7 raining seasons since 2009 when  Boko Haram began.And what better time than now when the forest Is porous to flush them out?

Nigeria armed forces don't know where Boko Haram's base is.Nor does it know its command structure.

Boko Haram is not asking anything as a quid pro quo for peace. Negotiations and amnesty are clearly a foolish ploy to use. Boko Haram gets its reward from killing.

Incidentally, all the very deadly attacks by the group since May have come from within.Not Sambisa Forest.

The president's presentation takes away all hope that he can handle the group." I will still stay and fight it out"
More like surrender.

Somewhere in all this, Is the question of Nigerian Military Chiefs.They should be planning the strategy.Instead, they are fighting internal bureaucracy withing its ranks.

Aljazeera did not help Nigeria by not asking why the president's campaign time line of crushing Boko Haram went up In smoke.

At Boko Haram's success rate, December is too long.The North East could be gone by then.

Finally no military tells is enemy how it will defeat it.
