PIC 1. VISIT OF THE US AFRICOM GEN RODRIGUEZPresident Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday reaffirmed his conviction that Boko Haram’s ability to attack, seize, ravage and hold any Nigerian territory, will be completely destroyed by the end of this year.

He spoke when the Commander of United States Africa Command, Gen. David Rodriguez, visited him at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

President Buhari, in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said that with greater support from his administration in terms of improved training, equipment, logistics and welfare, the Nigerian Armed Forces were now in pole position to meet the December deadline which they have been given to end the Boko Haram insurgency.

The president also seized the opportunity of Gen. Rodriquez’s visit to restate his appreciation of the United States’ support for Nigeria’s efforts to overcome terrorism and insurgency.

He said: “We must thank the United States of America for sending training teams and equipment to us. The positive results of our collaboration are evident.

“Structured attacks by the insurgents have reduced and by the end of the year, we should see the final routing of Boko Haram as an organized fighting force”.

President Buhari also appealed for greater cooperation from the U.S in securing the Gulf of Guinea through which stolen Nigerian crude oil is shipped abroad.

Gen. Rodriguez was accompanied on the visit to the Presidential Villa by Nigeria’s Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Gabriel Olanisakin; Deputy Assistant U.S Secretary of State for Defence, Amanda Dory and U.S. Ambassador to Nigeria, James Entwistle.
