Obasanjo’s recommendation for tackling Boko Haram

The recent “carrot and stick” approach recommended by former President Olusegun Obasanjo to the solution of the Boko Haram insurgency should be taken seriously by President Goodluck Jonathan. Till date, among all our past leaders, Obasanjo has continuously shown concern, worry and proffered solution to this lingering crisis. He, human like all of us, though, has his faults which many of us have at one time or the other kicked against both while he was in or out of power. Yet, it is often said that, messages are considered while the messenger can be ignored. Obasanjo as a former president and military chief in this country has a lot to offer in terms of experience and tactics in security matters. We cannot for very obvious reasons sideline him when he speaks on similar issues just because we differ with his political moves. We should and must take him seriously because of our interest in building and achieving peace and unity in this country.
