REVEALED:I’ve done the needful on Boko Haram as i have promise Nigeria — Buhari

Major General Muhammadu Buhari (ret.), the President, has stated that his government’s efforts to “clear Boko Haram” in the North-East were aided by “God.”

While expressing satisfaction that normalcy had returned to the affected states in the North-East, the President acknowledged that the threat posed by terrorism was the most significant security challenge that his regime had to face.

As a result, Buhari declared that he had carried out the promise he made to Nigerians in his inaugural address on May 29, 2015 to confront Boko Haram terrorists head-on and courageously and stabilize the country.

This is because, despite the fact that he claimed that he did not have “one square inch outside Nigeria,” he claimed that while he was in office, no one could extort him for his illogical wealth or illegal gain.

These are included in a statement that was signed on Tuesday by Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity.

“President Muhammadu Buhari says nobody can blackmail him on inexplicable wealth and illicit enrichment while he is in office, saying “I do not have one square inch outside Nigeria,”” read the statement.

“Reiterating his promise to serve God and Nigeria until his last day in office and beyond, the President spoke Monday night at a State banquet held in his honor in Damaturu, the capital of Yobe State.

“He stated, “as I said more than 30 years ago, we have no other country than Nigeria, we must all stay here and salvage it together,” and he advised Nigerians to remain patriotic.

“The President expressed delight that normalcy has returned to the affected States in North-East Nigeria, noting that the most critical security challenge inherited by the administration nearly eight years ago was the potent and pervasive threat of terrorism.

He recalled that Yobe State was among the most frequently targeted by terrorists and that the threat was especially pervasive throughout the North-East geopolitical zone.

“He, therefore, declared that he has fulfilled the promise he made to Nigerians in his inaugural address on May 29, 2015 to confront Boko Haram terrorists head-on and courageously and stabilize the country.

“‘God has helped us clear the North-East of Boko Haram, the economy has picked up, and some people are asking me about the results of my promise to fight corruption.'”

“Well, it’s not easy to fight corruption under this system. As head of state while serving in the military, I kept some people in jail because the Constitution requires you to declare your assets. Those who couldn’t explain the differences in their assets were locked up.

“‘In the end, I was also imprisoned.'” Therefore, you must be prepared for the worst if you want to serve this nation. However, the fact that no one can bribe me is one thing for which I am thankful to God. I intend to remain in Nigeria when I retire from public office because I do not have a square inch outside of Nigeria.

The President stated, “Reflecting on his journey to the presidency and re-election:

President Buhari praised Yobe State Governor Mai Mala Buni for implementing people-centered projects in the wake of the state’s return to peace and security.

“The President said he was fortunate to have the governor in the saddle as the political leader in the state, supporting the federal efforts to eradicate the Boko Haram terrorist group, and described the governor as very competent and courageous.

“The President also acknowledged the assistance of Nigeria’s neighbors in the fight against insurgency and recalled that his first trip outside of the country in 2015 was to Niger and Chad to obtain support for the fight against the erroneous sect.

“President Buhari expressed gratitude to the people of Yobe State, including the Governor and Senate President Ahmed Lawan, for their warm welcome during the State visit.

“In his remarks, Governor Buni expressed his delight at the President’s inauguration of significant projects in the state, such as the Yobe International Cargo Airport, the Damaturu ultra-modern market, the Maternal and Child Health Complex at the Yobe State University Teaching Hospital, the 2,600 Housing Estate in Potiskum, and the Damaturu Mega School at the new Bra-Bra.

“He pleaded with the President to grant the Federal Government permission to take over the Yobe State International Cargo Airport and to reimburse the State Government for the N38 billion it had spent on the project.

“In accordance with the presidential directive, the IGP gave the President and Nigerians the assurance that the Nigeria Police are fully prepared for the upcoming general election in 2023 and would remain apolitical.

“In accordance with the directives of Mr. President and prior to their deployment for the general election, he disclosed that newly passed out Constables are being posted on field operations to their Local Government Areas.

“’In addition, we have exposed our personnel to specialized election security management trainings, and we have developed a Code of Conduct Handbook to guide the Police and other national security agencies that will be participating in the exercise,’ he stated.

He went on to say that the Force has also worked with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the military, the intelligence community, and other Sister Security Agencies to refine the Election Security Operational Action Plan and perfect the logistics and manpower mobilization framework.

“The IGP thanked the President for the annual recruitment of ten thousand police Constables over a five-year period, adding that the Presidential consideration has significantly bridged the manpower gap in the Force and broadly strengthened their capacity to effectively police the electoral process,” reads the statement.
