Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Monday stated that the December deadline given to the military by President Mohammadu Buhari to rout out insurgency in the country was realisable.
He, however, stated that Nigeria does not have to wait until the last of the terrorist was killed before declaring victory.
According to him, evidence of victory comes immediately the military had exerted its authority over the terrorists.
The former president spoke to the State House Correspondents on Monday after submitting the report of a study on how Nigeria could win the war against Boko Haram.
Obasanjo said that the ugly situation in the north east had compelled his team to embark on a mission to Columbia to study the country’s strategy, efforts and experience in its 50-year battle against the FARC rebels.
