During his declaration for the 2015 Presidential Elections at Abuja’s Eagle Square, President Goodluck Jonathan vowed to crush Boko Haram and bring peace to the troubled North-East if re-elected. However, similar promises in the past have not materialized, raising questions about the government’s sincerity and commitment to ending the insurgency.

The Nigerian Government, along with its security agencies, has resorted to propaganda and misinformation to create a false sense of security. The public is bombarded with empty assurances while the violence in the North-East continues unabated. This manipulation of information only serves to undermine public trust and belittle the severity of the crisis.

By adopting various propaganda techniques, the government aims to convince Nigerians that it is effectively tackling Boko Haram, but the reality on the ground tells a different story. The citizens have grown weary of this charade and demand genuine action, not empty rhetoric.

The President’s plea for another term to address the crisis after failing to do so in the previous five years is met with skepticism. Playing politics with security is unacceptable, and Nigerians deserve leaders who prioritize their safety over political gains.

The battle against Boko Haram cannot be won with mere words; it requires practical and effective strategies. It is time for the government and its security apparatus to stop making empty promises and start taking tangible actions to restore peace to the North-East.

Nigerians are tired of hearing assurances without seeing concrete results. The government must stop the war of words and start implementing comprehensive and strategic plans to combat Boko Haram effectively.

In conclusion, the fight against Boko Haram demands action, not empty rhetoric. Nigerians deserve leaders who prioritize their safety and well-being over political posturing. It is time for the government to step up and deliver on its promises for a safer and more secure Nigeria. God save Nigeria.
