"Nigeria Military will annihilate Boko Haram by December" - President Buhari insists

President Buhari
Despite recent bomb blasts in Abuja and some states in the north east, President Muhammadu Buhari has said that he remains fully confident that by the end of this year, Boko Haram's ability to attack, seize, ravage and hold any Nigerian territory will have been completely obliterated.

A statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina said the president spoke when he met with the Commander of United States Africa Command, Gen David Rodriguez.

Buhari said that with greater support from his administration in terms of improved training, equipment, logistics and welfare, the Nigerian Armed Forces were well positioned to meet the December deadline which he gave to them to end the Boko Haram insurgency.

The president seized the opportunity of Rodriquez's visit to restate his appreciation of the United States' support for Nigeria's efforts to overcome terrorism and insurgency
