Nigerians have been reassured that every inch of Nigerian territory still under the control of Boko Haram will be reclaimed and insurgency defeated in the country. President Goodluck Jonathan gave the assurance yesterday in a message posted on his verified Facebook page.
The president, who boasted that never again shall Nigerian territory be occupied by terrorists, expressed Nigerians’ gratitude to the military for their gallantry in confronting and rolling back terrorists and enemies of the state.
He promised to continue to support the Nigerian Armed Forces by ensuring they have the best training and equipment as well as enhanced conditions of service.
“I am daily updated about the war on terror and the progress being consistently made by the Nigerian military. Let me say that I am proud of the valour displayed by the officers and men of our security services. As the Commander-in-Chief of the Nigerian Armed Forces, I commend our military for their gallantry in confronting and rolling back terrorists and enemies of Nigeria. This is only the beginning. Just as I assured our troops when I visited them at the front and all Nigerians during my last Presidential Media Chat, we will not relent until every inch of Nigerian territory is retaken and the insurgency is defeated. Never again shall Nigerian territory be occupied by terrorists! We remain grateful to our troops and we will continue to support them by ensuring they have the best training and equipment as well as enhanced conditions of service. God bless Nigeria and I invite all Nigerians to join me in saying #VictoryForNigeria. GEJ” he posted.
