The Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar has vowed to investigate the Amnesty International allegation of genocide against the Nigerian military, if elected President in the forthcoming election.
Atiku stated that he will also investigate the hierarchy of the military officials as a way to address the anti-terrorism fight in the North-East.
The Presidential candidate who was invited with his running mate, Peter Obi, said this on Wednesday in Abuja, at a town hall meeting tagged: ‘’The Candidates”, organised by the MacArthur Foundation in collaboration with NTA and DARIA media.
He further said that his government would not hesitate to deal with any senior officer who failed in his duty after being adequately funded by his government.
“We cannot continue to accept that kind of situation whereby commanders lose lives, lose equipment to terrorists and then nothing happens to them,’’ he said.
He also said that if re-elected he would resend a bill to the National Assembly to prosecute any government at any level that mismanaged education funds, adding that the government need to invest more in education and health sectors as well as to bring in more investors to compliment governments programmes in the health sector .
