President Muhammadu Buhari has restated the commitment of his administration to completely wiping out Insurgents in Nigeria.
In his words; “I wish to state that this Administration will not tolerate or condone acts of banditry and criminality, under any guise.
As such, our security agencies have been mandated to deal with such acts decisively.”
“Let me state that this Administration has been working assiduously in conjunction with our local and international partners, to rebuild damaged communities in North East part of our country.
Similarly, we are committed to tackling the issues of underdevelopment and neglect in the Niger Delta area.
This is a priority we have set before us and we intend to make appreciable gains in correcting the ills of the past in the Niger Delta by assuaging inherent grievances.”
The terror group, Boko Haram recently named a new leader, a move which many have interpreted as strategic by the organization which has now become an IS affiliate. Despite this, the Nigerian government appears unfazed, claiming that Boko Haram is already defeated.
