The Presidency has brushed aside calls by former army generals to President Muhammadu Buhari to step aside in the next presidential elections. The Nation reports that Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari, said that Buhari will defeat all the former presidents and heads of state. Shehu said that Buhari deserves a second term in office and will win again if all the former leaders come out and contest against him next year. 

Reacting to the call by the former leaders urging Buhari not to contest, Garba Shehu said: “My response to them is that if they like they can come and contest against President Buhari. He will defeat them, all of them.” Shehu also said reports that Boko Haram fighters are being granted amnesty were mere rumours. 

He however noted that the Presidency is open to negotiating with the insurgents to lay down their weapons because it would save lives and resources. He said: “Whoever is peddling these rumours that Boko Haram is being granted amnesty and so on I would ask them who doesn’t want to make peace with the enemy? In any case as it is proverbially said all wars end up in the Boardroom.

 You can defeat people technically in the field but at the end you must come to the conference room to resolve all issues. “So if Boko Haram would lay down their arms and stop fighting and stop preaching that negative ideology , the country should be able to embrace them welcome all of them so that they continue to live normal lives and be useful to the nation. 

 “What that mean is that we will be saving cost, saving lives that are being lost through bombing, killing of service personnel and we will be saving money that we are using to procure weapons so that such money can go into services and infrastructure and welfare of the citizens of this country. It is a win -win situation.”
