Nigerians react as 1400 Boko Haram

Some Nigerians have reacted to the news that the Borno State Government said about 1,400 repentant Boko Haram suspects have been released by the military and rehabilitated into society.

The Borno State Commissioner for Information, Babakura Jato, told The PUNCH during an interview on Monday that 1, 400 had been released in three tranches since the ‘Operation Safe Corridor’ program began.

It was gathered that although the program began in 2016, it wasn’t until 2018 that the release of the suspects entered.

Jato said most of the persons released were not actually Boko Haram members but were relatives of terrorists or persons found in the wrong place at the wrong time.
The commissioner said, “There have been a series of releases. They were released in three tranches. The first set was released during Governor Shettima’s time, while two sets have been released under Prof. Zulum.

“The total number of persons released is 1,400. Out of the 1,400, the majority of them are cleared, suspects. These were people who were suspected of being members of Boko Haram, and it was discovered that they were not.”
On this note, some concerned Nigerians are airing their views via comments on social media.

How Do We Tell Our Children: They Are The “Leaders of Tomorrow” When We Are Still Being Led by Past Leaders?

When we were growing up, our parents always asked what we would like to be in future and we open our mouth wholeheartedly and say doctor, pilot, engineer, banker, etc

To be candid I wanted to be a Lawyer but today I am a post-construction cleaner, sounds funny but crazy. Whenever we went to school, there is this song we loved to sing then ‘parents listen to your children, because we are the “leaders of tomorrow”, try and pay our school fees and give us sound education’. Our parents have done their part by giving us sound education, we’ve done our part by becoming learned, yet we are not “Leaders”. Politicians of then said parents train your children well because they are the “Leaders of Tomorrow”.

30years running, some graduated with a good grades, some went ahead and had their masters, some Bsc, some OND, some HND, some NCE, etc…what comes to some of our mind is desperation and desperation often leads to destruction because we are hungry, we are angry, we are jobless, we are frustrated and out of this frustration some have committed suicide, some joined bad gang, some become armed robbers, hired assassins…..

Now lets go to my main point, are we really the leaders of this day? When I can’t even afford three square meal, I don’t have an apartment of my own, you hardly see a 35 year old occupying an office in the house of assembly, house of rep, senatorial district and so on. These set of politicians that tell us we are the

“Leaders of Tomorrow” still occupy these seats comfortably and from the look of things they are not ready to leave in near future. Tomorrow is here, yet we are nothing near Leaders, are we truly the Leaders of Today?
