He said the ceasefire pact with the sect has come at a time when Nigerians have become used to receiving government’s information with disdain and skepticism over series of reneges.
The senator, who represents Borno south District in the Senate, told BBC Hausa that the ceasefire agreement would be received with caution by Nigerians owing to the existence of factions in the group. Senator Ndume said: “We hope it is true. When we first heard about it, we were all elated. Yet we felt discouraged and entertained some doubt about it because this is not the first time a ceasefire agreement is being announced.”
He said people actually have doubts whether there is a single body of this group [Boko Haram] that takes central decision on behalf of others saying that it may turn out to be a faction that agreed to the ceasefire and then another faction is against that.
The senator advised the Nigerian government to stick to the rules of the agreement by letting Nigerians know of all the details involved.
He said if the principle of the agreement was not open, the government has to keep it beneath until they finalise all details before announcing to the world.
