Kano State Governor, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, on Friday noted that the country must stamp out terrorism by crushing both the supporters supporting Boko Haram and the elements carrying out the maiming in the North East.
Kwankwaso who is a presidential aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC) expressed concern on the attempt by the ruling party to introduce politics into the raging insurgency rather than boldly confronting the insurgents and their backers in the overall interest of Nigeria.
“As far as I am concerned, Nigerians would be more interested to see an end to insurgents instead of talking about who is in support of it or not. What we need to do is to take appropriate military step to stop insurgents and protect the territorial integrity of Nigeria or we sit down and negotiate with the insurgents.
“Nigeria has gone past the stage of trying to accuse who is supporting Boko Haram or which party is not. What is needed as a country is to crush both those supporting it and the elements killing and maiming people in parts of the country irrespective of which party,religion or tribe they may come from,” He said.
