President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday in Niamey, Niger, said he is confident that the Nigerian military will flush out Boko Haram.
Speaking with journalists after talks with President Issoufou Mahamadou of Niger, President Buhari said the Nigerian Army remains a virile fighting force. “I am four days in office today and we have already started the process of ending the insurgency,” the president said. He said heads of the Nigeria Armed Forces and security agencies, in a five-hour meeting, informed him that operations against Boko Haram will be reviewed for better results.
The president said his visit to Niger was to seek more support from the country in bringing a quick end to activities of Boko Haram. President Buhari said he would hold similar meetings on security and the war against terrorism with the Chadian authorities after leaving Niamey on Thursday.
