A FORMER Chief of General Staff(Vice-President under the military)  Commodore Ebitu Ukiwe has asked President Buhari to change his strategy and tactics for fighting corruption as it is clear his present tactics has placed the 'country in a standstil'.
Commodore Ukiwe who turned 76 last Wednesday examined the multifaceted crises in Nigeria, even as he demanded that normalcy be urgently restored in the country.  
"It is obvious that he has to make some changes, it is obvious that he has to have a second look at his tactics and see how best to handle it. 
"You can see that the whole country is at a standstill regarding the issue that is happening about the judges, the lawyers, the National Judicial Council. The country is stuck. 
"What is now needed is to apply all the caution and  reason to be able to bring back normalcy to some extent to be able to fight corruption," he said.
The Commodore who spoke exclusively to VANGUARD in an interview also barred his mind on the agitation of the Indeginious People of Biafra (IPOB).
"I don’t think I have any strong message for them(IPOB) because even the way they are going about it is not the right way. I fought the war and I suffered all the inconveniences of the failure of that war. 
"What they are doing, I have not been able to understand. And I believe that if they can subject themselves to a little discussion, we will be able to talk to them and they will be able to understand what should be done. 
''Criticising them will not be the solution, but if they are willing to be talked to, we will do that. I believe that if we are able to talk to them and the government, both sides will see sense in what to do and solve the problem.
He added that the solution to Nigeria's problem is in identifying the " disease and not chasing symptoms ".
" The Nigeria we want is where there is peace, progress, development and general wellbeing of the people. The problems in the country are the symptoms of a disease. We have to identify what the disease is and not chasing symptoms. Diagnosis of the disease is the first thing before applying  the right medicine. 
''A good leader cannot emerge in the country through the type of fraudulent elections we often have, deceit and looting of the treasury. Now, the problem has got to the stage of kidnapping, raping, and assassinations", he said
