President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday said, in spite of recent setbacks, people in the North-East can testify that his government has recorded remarkable improvement in the fight against Boko Haram.
Buhari made this claim on his verified Twitter handle on Wednesday evening.
He tweeted, “In spite of the challenges we’ve had, people in the North East know that we have recorded remarkable improvement in the fight against Boko Haram.
“There is no doubt that we will fully overcome these challenges and win the war against terrorism in Nigeria.”
Borno State governor, Kashim Shettima had only recently admitted that the insurgency was assuming a worsening dimension.
He said this at a closed-door meeting with security operatives.
He said, “The realities are that while so much was achieved by our gallant military, we are, today, faced with serious challenges in Borno State.”
