President Goodluck Jonathan on Saturday assured Nigerians that Book Haram insurgency in the country will soon end.
The president made this known in Lagos when he hosted some Igbo market and town union leaders under the auspices of the Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria led by billionaire businessmen Arthur Eze and Ifeanyi Ubah.
“I just want to tell Nigerians that this phase will surely pass,” said Jonathan, who lamented the Kano bomb attack where about 200 people were killed on Friday.
“This intimidation will not last. We will continue to improve on the technology needed to combat terrorism,” he added.
The president said further that other countries have faced terrorism and have overcome. This he said shows that Nigeria will also overcome its challenges.
He thanked the Igbo leaders who represented the 158 recognized markets in the state, as well as the town unions in Lagos, for vowing to deliver all Igbo votes in the state to the PDP in the 2015 presidential election.
Speaking earlier, Prince Arthur Eze urged Igbos to continue mobilizing votes for Jonathan because he has the fear of God and sincerity to work for the nation.
