Creating ministry for Boko Haram is indirectly asking Nigerians to join the terror group, says Sen Ndume

You are just telling people to go and join Boko Haram and then repent and become something (sic) that’s a totally unacceptable idea and a way of solving the problem.

As the proposed bill for the establishment of the National Agency for Education, Rehabilitation, De-radicalisation and Integration of repentant Boko Haram members continues to elicit debate, Senator Ali Ndume have also kicked against the passage of the bill, saying that the bill was indirectly asking more Nigerians to team up with the t**rorist group.

The controversial bill was sponsored by Senator Ibrahim Gaidam representing Yobe East Senatorial District and former governor of Yobe State.



The bill which passed first reading in the Senate last week, is meant to create an administrative structure that would deal with repentant Boko Haram insurgents willing to be absorbed back in the society.

But reacting to the bill, Senator Ndume, said the bill was outrightly unacceptable.

Ndume, who representing Borno South in the National Assembly, and also the Chairman Senate Committee on Army, stated that the bill will swell the ranks of Boko Haram because they are sure of rehabilitation and reintegration into society.




He said: “I personally disagree with that. The war is not over and some criminals that have been k*lling people you say that you are doing Operation Safe Corridor for them.

“I am completely against that idea. They know my position on that, you can’t do that.

“It is when you win the war and some people surrender that you think about something like that,” Ndume said.

“You are just telling people to go and join Boko Haram and then repent and become something (sic) that’s a totally unacceptable idea and a way of solving the problem.”
