President Jonathan On Boko Haram: Things Will Change by Next Month

Posted in: ,

President Jonathan on Thursday declared that by next month, Boko Haram insurgence will reduce drastically. He said this at the 66rh National Executive Committee, NEC of the PDP. Jonathan stressed the fact that insecurity is the ultimate challenge of the country but plans to stop Boko Haram is well in place as he wants to instill his own leadership.

Commiserating with victims of killings in Kaduna and Kano states, the President disclosed that he would be attending the United Nations General Assembly summit on Global Terrorism which all the super powers would attend. He said:

“Nigeria is having an unfair share. Terror is a global problem, and Nigeria situation is going beyond terror. When terrorists think about holding ground, attempting to install leadership, it is no longer terrorism, it is almost like going into the line of succession. Between now and October, things will change.

He appreciated the Senate and the entire National Assembly for their statement and joining the government in this regard, promising to bring it to an end.

Meanwhile, following the regrouping of Boko Haram terrorists and a second attack on Konduga town by the insurgents on Wednesday night, the Nigerian Army said another 60 insurgents were killed in the battle that ensued.

After the confrontation which lasted from 4pm to 8pm, several military hardware recovered from the insurgents included 13 AK-47 rifles, five RPGs, two General Purpose Machine Guns (GPMGs) and one anti-aircraft gun.

Two Ford Ranger pick-up vehicles that could be used to mount anti-aircraft attack ordnance were also recovered.
