Boko Haram crisis could last 15 more years – Obasanjo


Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has warned that the  Boko Haram insurgency in the North-East could take 15 more years to eliminate if the government fails to focus on education.

He also warned the country about the risks of a population explosion.

According to him, Nigeria’s population will be 450 million in the next 30 years.

Obasanjo gave the warnings while addressing some youths and students at a youth programme organised by the Youth Development Centre, an arm of the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library,  in Abeokuta on Tuesday.

He urged the government to find a lasting solution to the big rise in the number of children out of school in some parts of the country, saying the development had contributed to the  Boko Haram insurgency.
