I Will Defeat Boko Haram Before I Vacate Aso Rock – President Jonathan


pres-goodluck-jonathanPresident Goodluck Jonathan has pledged that he will do all within his powers to ensure that all Nigerian territories still held by insurgents are totally liberated before May 29, 2015.

Receiving a delegation of Heads of Customs from the West and Central African Region of the World Customs Organization led by the Secretary-General of the organization, Mr Kunio Mikuriya, Jonathan said he was determined to hand over a country completely free of terrorist strongholds to the President-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari.

The President said that ongoing military operations in the North-East had already recorded huge successes, with two states completely free from the terrorists, while operations in the third state had reached a concluding stage. “We can now say two states are completely free from terrorist control, while in the third state, it is only in one local government area that they are still present.

That is in the Sambisa Forest,” he said.Jonathan noted that the military had already moved into the forest to seize the remaining camps of the terrorists, adding that the recent rescue of about 300 abducted girls and women was further evidence of the success being achieved in the ongoing operation.
