We’ll soon defeat Boko Haram, says Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari  has  reaffirmed  his conviction that the end of the Boko Haram insurgency is in sight with the added vigour the war against the terrorist sect is now being prosecuted by Nigeria and her allies.
Speaking during a visit by Mr Mousa Faki Mahamat, Chadian  Minister of Foreign Affairs and  Special Envoy of President Idris Deby, Buhari said that with higher morale among troops on the frontline against Boko Haram and their improved logistics, equipment and training, a rapid end to the insurgency could be expected.
A statement by Presidential spokesman Femi Adesina said Nigeria and Chad must be prepared to make more sacrifices to end the scourge of Boko Haram since they were at the “very heart of the insurgency”.

“We will sustain our efforts, and the insurgents will be defeated soon,” President Buhari vowed.
The Special Envoy said President Deby appreciated the leadership being shown by President Buhari in the war against terrorism.
”We also appreciate the diligence shown in appointing a commander for the Multinational Joint Task Force, and President Deby believes that the fight will end in a few months.
“Our people rely on us to end the insurgency, because economic development is being hampered.  This fight has to come to an end. My coming here is to reaffirm our full commitment. Beyond the number of troops earlier announced, Chad is still ready to commit more soldiers.
“The enemy is weakened already. Let’s stand firm, and neutralize them,” he said.
