ABUJA. H.E Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2019 general elections, has said, he knows how the deadly terrorist group Boko Haram started.
In an interview with The African Report, which he shared on his verified Twitter handle, @atiku, former vice president Atiku said that, politicians were to be blamed for the emergence of Boko Haram.
The PDP presidential candidate stated this in a chat with The Africa Report while speaking on how he’ll counter the sect.
“I happen to know how Boko Haram came into being. They were offshoots of political thuggery. Politicians used those boys in Boko Haram to win elections and then abandoned them and then there were no jobs for them.
