Buhari again insists Army have defeated Boko Haram despite 30 killed in latest blasts
Even as the terrorist group, Boko Haram killed 30 people on Friday, President Muhammadu Buhari insists that the group is facing annihilation.
Buhari who was reacting to the latest twin bombings in Madagali, Adamawa state insisted that the “Army have made significant advancements in an offensive aimed at slamming the final nail in the coffin of Boko Haram.”
While commiserating with families of victims of the incidence, in a statement put out by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Shehu Garba, the president said that “putting an end to this senseless loss of innocent lives remains a top priority of this administration”.

According to him, “This latest attack is obviously an act of desperation, but the Nigerian military will neither be distracted nor relent.”
President Buhari used the opportunity to urge Nigerians to be more vigilant and immediately report any suspicious activity to the nearest security and law enforcement agency.
“The battle against terrorism is a joint effort involving all citizens, both government and governed. Together, Nigerians can and will defeat the evil that is Boko Haram,” he declared.

Buhari needs to be taken to psychiatric hospital for a test. How can he say boko haram is defeated whereby they still wreck havoc daily.

Mtchew. So you now know that Farida Waziri is right when she says politicians should go for psychiatric test before sworn in to political offices.
Your President has brain at all.

Lol. Why the insult now on a whole president. After all , the people the boko haram are killing are non human to buhari. So he might be right to say boko haram have been defeated.

Buhari is not serious for saying together we can defeat the evil boko haram. God forbid I joined join the soldiers to fight boko haram. I still have more pleasurable years to enjoy than to allow boko haram waste my life because of patriotism.

We have never had a more stubborn President. We have never had one that sits in Aso Rock and thinks he got everything under control. We have never had a leader so unconcerned about the feelings of the people.

Buhari doesn’t really know what’s going on down the country, his media team are misinforming him, that’s why he said the army have defeated the Boko Haram
December 10, 2016 at 12:20 pm
The military are doing well in the fight, we should give them kudos for the hard fight against the sect
December 10, 2016 at 12:22 pm
I don’t think Buhari knows what his saying! Does he have a hand in the death of the recent military men in battle field against boko Haram?

Help me ask your papa buhari because he speaks like a wickling without sense of reasoning
