The Nigerian Army announced on Thursday, 15th of August, 2019, a new commander for Boko Haram war, Brigader General A.K. Ibrahim, appointed as the new acting General Officer Commanding (GOC), for the 7 Division in Maiduguri.
His redeployment takes effect from 14th, August, 2019. We wish him a good service and hope for the best.
Do you have any advise to help our new Commander to fulfill his objective of ending the war? Drop your comments.
I don't think any change would be made because the people sponsoring Boko Haram are at the top
All we need do is to pray for him to succeed in his move to tackle the Boko Haram fight
The fight against Boko Haram can be most successful if the commander himself choose to die defending.
He should remain focus and also ensure that the welfare of the officers is well taken care of.
With God helping him,I pray He will overcome the So called Boko Haram terrorists
Please the government should do something about this terrorism of this boko Haram terrorizing in the country.
The people that are sponsoring the boko haram Are the people at the top
So changing of commander won't change anything
We should just pray for him ,so that God wil help us to tacle the issue
One advice i have for him is to stay focus and avoid distraction.
For the new commander to succeed he need to have the support of all the Army Generals and also hand in hand with those at the war front.
Presently in the Nigerian Army there are problems amongst themselves. If Nigeria is to win the war against Boko Haram, the army should unite themselves and do the needful. The war has gone on for far too long, so I think a change is welcomed.
Boko Haram to me is more of a conspiracy than a war, Most wars end within 4 years but the issue of Boko haram have been around for quiet a long while
All I have for him is to pray God help him to put end to Boko Haram insulgency.
The best thing is to capture those sponsored the.
The new commander should make record and put his name on a golden plate
The task is too much for him to handle alone... The government should also work with him.
That little Christian girl, Leah, is still yet to be released and it's being years. We don't care about a change in personnel, we need more action.
The war against Boko Haram need GOD intervention, my advice for me is to stay focused and trust one, because information links between the those in power to this terrorist.
Nothing will really happen if the sponsors of the sect is not brought to order. If that is not done we'keep moving in this cycle
There will be changed if he's given the needed support from the government and citizens as well because security is everybody's concern
Nothing will change even 10,000 commanders are change this is Nigeria,If it's going to change the commander would go on one in one amnesty seeking to the boko Haram which I knew is impossible
Yes there will surely be a change if he is really supported
The same people that appointed him, are the same people sponsoring Boko boy
All he need is courage to face the giant. It is not always what it seems. The boko haram may seem powerful but they have weakness and so he should try to discern their weaknesses and trike
I don't think he would succeed. The only people that can fight boko haram are those oga at the top. These oga at the top are the people sponsoring the boko haram. So for the new commander fighting the boko haram is like pouring water into basket.

The war on the Boko Haram insurgency is more of a Political factor, I seriously think he needs to find the sponsors of this insurgents and arrest them before going out to eliminate the remaining insugents at the sambisa forest.
It isn't about the personality, it's about the efforts and the system in place. I'll advise our new commander to know that this war is psychological, and to win a psychological war, you need a psychological warfare.
I believe this change in commander will definitely bring a change in the manner of approach from the Nigerian army and I hope this change can only give them a positive edge and make them to be unpredictable against their enemies.
I wish him the best and I pray he's not weak in his actions. We just need the best in this country. He can do his best to bring change unless he's been directed from the authorities above him to mess up.
All we need to do is to wish him well... Always encourage him... And also pray for him... I hope he does well in his new office been appointed to him.... We also pray we end this Boko Haram once and for all
All will need is to pray for him and Nigerian army because all those top top officer they working with Boko Haram if army want to war now they mention one uniform that they should wear but getting to the war they seen that Boko Haram wear the same uniform they wear.so may God help us will all our leaders
They should fish out the politicians and top government officials sponsoring the Boko Haram terrorists and also equip the army with adequate tools to counter the menace otherwise this new commander will face the same problems his predecessors faced.
