The new military hardware procured by the Federal government coupled
with the operation by the multi-national joint task force have
strengthened the zeal to defeat the islamist Boko Haram.
Nigeria, Cameroon, Niger and Chad make up the task force and have had
the upper hand in the fight against the Boko Haram.
Minister of Youth Development and former Governor of Adamawa State Mr.
Boni Haruna said this at both Michika and Madagali local government
areas during the week end when he visited the two areas.
He debunked insinuations that the fight against Boko Haram is suddenly
being rushed after the nation found it difficult containing the
insurgents for the past six years.
According to him, it was quite difficult fighting the insurgents who
operated along the nations porous borders adding that with the
co-operation went through with Chad, Cameroon and Niger, the
insurgents are finding it difficult to operate since they cannot
attack the nation only to escape to the territories of these multi
national task force.
“it is like if attacked by armed bandits and your neighbours assist
you, you can overcome them”, he said.
Boni Haruna said aside of the joint task force, the equipment procured
by the military has greatly helped in the fight against the Boko
He then called on Nigerians to distance themselves from politicizing
the issue of the fight against the Boko Haram.
This is truth, the whole truth and nothing but the whole truth!
