I’ve Fulfilled Pledge To Tackle B’Haram – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has said he has fulfilled the commitment made to Nigerians in his May 29, 2015, inaugural address to frontally and courageously tackle Boko Haram terrorists and stabilise the country.

The president stated this while speaking at a state banquet organised in his honour in Damaturu, the Yobe State capital, on Monday night by Governor Mai Mala Buni.

Buhari, who noted that the most critical security challenge inherited by the administration nearly eight years ago was the potent and pervasive threat of terrorism, expressed delight that normalcy had returned to affected states in the North East.

The president, in a statement issued on Tuesday by his spokesman, Femi Adesina, recalled that the threat was particularly pervasive across the North East geopolitical zone with Yobe State being one of the most hit by the terrorists.

He said: “In the North East, God has helped us to clear Boko Haram, the economy has picked up, and some people are asking me about the achievements of my promise to fight corruption.

“Well, under this system, fighting corruption is not easy. When I was in the military, as Head of State, I locked up some people because the constitution says you must declare your assets, and for people who couldn’t explain the differences in their assets, I locked them up.

“In the end, I was also locked up. So, if you want to serve this country, you must be prepared for the worst.”
