Nigeria’s former minister of Solid minerals and education and a one time Vice President of World Bank, Oby Ezekwesili, has promised to end the menace of Boko Haram if elected President in 2019.
Oby made this known during an interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Wednesday, November 21, 2018. She is contesting the 2019 presidential election under the platform of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN).
The ACPN presidential candidate promised to release the remaining Chibok girls by adopting a holistic approach.
“A research we had at the World Bank showed that those communities where this menace thrives need to be engaged”, she said.
“We will provide jobs so that people will be busy and get paid.”
Oby also mentioned that her approach would extend to overhauling the country’s security set-up.”
“Second, my government will completely overhaul the security system. We need fresh hands and people who will end this problem.”
“Third, we must also improve our intelligence gathering with a cutting-edge technology in order to be preemptive and proactive”.
Oby also called on Nigerians to reject the candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2019.
