Sambo made the call in Yola, the Adamawa State capital while addressing the crowd gathered at a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential campaign rally, terming any attempt by General Buhari to lead such a war as a “suicide mission,” urging  both the opposition and the electorate to allow President Jonathan tackle the terrorism issue with “a more scientific and modern”.

His words: “I want to seize this opportunity to draw our attention to a publication, last week, credited to the vice-presidential candidate of the APC that their plan is to ask their presidential candidate, retired Maj-Gen. Buhari, to lead the war against Boko Haram.

“I want to ask you a question, a retired 73-year-old General – can he run? No!

“Okay, let’s assume that he can run; how many metres can he run before he falls? The training of a General that retired in 1985 is it the same training that can address a modern war? No!

“Now we are fighting war with drones, with new ideas that our President, a PhD holder, a scientist that is using (his knowledge) to address the security issues of this country. He described the plan as a suicidal proposal, asking “will he (Buhari) go with a suicidal proposal?”

While urging the people of the state to avail themselves with their Permanent Voters Card (PVC) and vote in President Jonathan, Sambo used the opportunity to unveil some of the development plans the President’s administration had for the state.

He said: “I want to give you this good news that Mr President has approved the development and completion of Kiri Dam and Jada Dam.

“All these Dams will be provided with hydro-electricity power and an irrigation scheme, with which we are developing economic corridors in Adamawa state.

“In addition to that, in the transport sector, I have good news for you. Mr President has approved the dredging of River Benue. Very soon, we will have a river port and ships and boats from different parts of the world will be here in Yola.”
