Govt Winning War Against Terror – Jonathan
President Goodluck Jonathan said yesterday that the federal government will leave no stone unturned in enhancing security in every part of the country, especially tackling terrorism.
Speaking in audience with the outgoing Representative of the Delegation of the European Union to Nigeria and ECOWAS, Mr David Mac Rae, President Jonathan, noted that measures already taken by his administration had resulted in significant reduction in the occurrence of terrorist attacks in the country.
Assuring that his administration will remain proactive in combating terrorism and insecurity, the president said, “As a government, we are doing everything possible to improve our country on all fronts. We are consistently adapting our security architecture to deal with terrorism, which has become a challenge to the whole world.
“Boko Haram is being progressively weakened but we are not resting on our oars. We will continue to do everything possible to achieve greater security for all who reside within our borders.”
Stressing that there “are many positive things happening in the country,” Jonathan said that his administration would continue to do its best to correct negative perceptions about the country such as the notion of widespread insecurity and corruption.
