Prior to his astonishing victory at the presidential poll, #Muhammadu Buhari was highly confident of ending insurgency in the country; a fact he has, once again, reiterated in far away #Niger Republic.
Speaking at a news conference in Niger during his first visit outside the country since inauguration, #President Muhammadu #Buhari reaffirmed his hard stance on Boko Haram insurgency plaguing the nation and vowed to put an end to the menace.
His words: “I renew my commitment to track Boko Haram into a corner, to destroy it. Five years of the presence of this evil sect is enough. On the issue of the Niger military positioned in cities of #Nigeria, I think in the next four weeks we will be able to replace them with Nigerian forces so they can return to their country”.
Buhari said the other nations would provide weapons and help restore infrastructure destroyed by the insurgents. He also thanked Niger for hosting as many as 150,000 refugees who fled insecurity in Nigeria to Niger.
A statement signed by #Garba Shehu, #Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity quoted the President as saying that because of the peculiarity of insurgency, Nigeria will require the assistance of its neighbours.
“I am four days in office today and we have already started the process of ending the insurgency,” the President said.
President Buhari said that because of the peculiarities of terrorism, the movement of terrorists across borders and the unconventional nature of the war against terror, Nigeria will continue to seek the support of neighbouring countries in its bid to overcome Boko Haram.
