Former Minister of Aviation and a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has expressed fear that in few years to come Nigeria may have a Boko Haram field commander as president.

There had been outrage across the country over a bill sponsored by Senator Ibrahim Gaidam, which seeks to establish an agency for the rehabilitation of repentant Boko Haram members.



The Senator who is the immediate past governor of Yobe State, said the proposed commission would help repentant insurgents to re-enter mainstream politics, religion and society. It would also would promote reconciliation and national unity.

“The agency when established will help rehabilitate and reintegrate the defectors, repentant and forcefully conscripted members of the insurgent group Boko Haram to make them useful members of the society and provide an avenue for reconciliation and promote national security,” he said.




“It will also encourage other members of the group who are still engaged in the insurgency to abandon the group, especially in the face of the military pressure and enable the government to derive insider-information about the insurgency group for greater understanding of the group and its inner workings,” he added.

“It will enable government to use the defectors to fight the unrepentant insurgents. It will help disintegrate the violent and poisonous ideology that the group spreads as the program will allow some repentant defectors or suspect t**rorists to express remorse over their actions repent and recant their violent doctrine and in the long run, re-enter mainstream politics, religion and society.



“The agency would also help to combat future recruitments into the insurgents group. If defectors told their stories and were made more public, their experiences would play a key role in countering T**rorist propaganda, which in turn would lessen the appeal of joining the group,” he explained.

But reacting on his official twitter handle on Thursday, Fani-Kayode said that the way the Boko Haram insurgents are being pampered and pardoned by the Federal government is an indication that the insurgents will soon rule the country.


He tweeted, "The way hardened Boko Haram fighters & k*llers are being pampered, pardoned, rehabilitated & re-integrated in this country there is a very real possibility that a few years from now we may have a Nigerian President who was once an active Boko Haram veteran and field commander.
