President Muhammadu Buhari on
Wednesday assured Nigerians that the
end of the Boko Haram sect and
terrorism in Nigeria is in sight.
Buhari gave the assurance in a
statement made available to journalists
by his Senior Special Assistant on Media
and Publicity, Garba Shehu.
The President was reacting to latest
terrorist attacks in Jos, Kano, and Zaria.
The statement quoted the President as
saying that he was convinced of his
position because of the recent positive
developments in the
nation’s security forces.
He therefore urged Nigerians to remain
security conscious and be swift in
reporting suspicious movements around
them to security agents.
“The President is convinced that with
recent increase in troops deployment,
improvements in the supply of arms and
equipment to the military,
as well as the ongoing effort to mobilise
greater international cooperation and
support, the end of Boko Haram and
terrorism in Nigeria is in sight.
“He calls on Nigerians to remain vigilant
and report any suspicious persons to
security agents as his administration
continues to give the highest possible
priority to eradicating Boko Haram and
ensuring greater security of lives and
property across the country,” the
statement read in part.
Buhari consoled all Nigerians who lost
relatives in the latest terrorist atrocities
in Jos, Kano, and Zaria, as well as those
who were injured in the attacks.
He, however, urged all Nigerians not to
be unduly disheartened by what he
called the seeming resurgence of terrorist
attacks and atrocities in the country.
He said his administration remained
committed to overcoming the challenges
of insecurity, terrorism and insurgency
as quickly as possible.
The statement added, “Already, the
intensified onslaught by the military on
terrorists’ strongholds has led to
significant seizures of weapons and
vehicles, a blockage of their sources of
arms and ammunition, and a decimation
of their fighting men.
“President Buhari assures Nigerians of
the ability and readiness of the country’s
armed forces and security agencies to
contain the frantic resort by the terrorists
to attacks on soft targets such as
crowds and places of worship.”
