If you wanted the help of others to be free, do not lie to yourself. L. B. Ogbeifun
‘All the 27 Local Government Areas in the state have been liberated from the hands of Boko Haram sect and fully under the control of Military Troops’ – Lai Mohammed and the immediate past Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) Gen Gabriel Olonisakin
‘The entire Guzamala Local Government Area where I hail from is still under the control of Boko Haram sect. There is no single existence of civil life in Guzamala, not to even talk of Military presence in the Council Headquarter and its surrounding communities, that are not dominated by armed Boko Haram’ – The Speaker of Borno State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Abdulkarim Lawan.
When you lie to yourself and deny what is obvious, you are indirectly hurting yourself. Besides, you inadvertently set up yourself to fail, kill your future, commit a sin, remove from your pathways, all those that would have come to your aid, and also tell God you don’t need Him.
Only the truth can help us properly manage the Boko Haram insurgency.
We played politics and ‘politricks’ with it during GEJ era, we are still playing ‘politricks’ with it.
No wonder the immediate Chief of Army Staff Tukur Buratai once said, it may take the country another 20 years to end the menace of the terrorists….’
If no Local Government was under the control of Boko Haram, why is it so easy to attack people in the NE and the attackers disappear without traces?
We now ascribe everything to Herdsmen and bandits.
Anyway, check out the statements above, and determine if we were not indeed lying to ourselves and in the end shooting ourselves in the foot.
Grace and peace!!!
