Boko Haram: Buhari has fulfilled his promise says Buratai
Written by Adewale Adeyemi on February 6, 2023
The former Chief of Army Staff, COAS, lieutenant general Tukur Buratai said President Muhammadu Buhari has fulfilled his promise to subdue Boko Haram and Islamic State of West Africa Province, ISWAP, terrorists.
Buratai, who made the assertion in an interview with newsmen in Abuja, recalled that President Buhari in his inaugural address on May 29, 2015, promised to subdue the terror groups.
The former COAS, however, warned that it is wrong to think that victory over Boko Haram terrorists meant a total cessation of hostilities. That, he said, would happen only when the terrorist groups agree to forsake their ideology, embrace democracy, respect the national constitution and sue for peace.
Daily post reports that Buratai said the President had, right from his inauguration, clear-cut strategies to subdue the terrorists and restore peace to the North East and Nigeria in general.
