ISWAP: I’ll not rest until peace is restored, IDPs return home in Borno – Buhari

0

President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday assured Nigerians of his administration’s resolve to end terrorism and return Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) back to their normal lives.

Buhari gave the assurance in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.

He commended the State Governor, Babagana Umara Zulum for resilience and relentless efforts in rebuilding the State.

The President was in the State to appraise the security situation and commission some development projects.

He attributed recent successes recorded by the military against insurgents and terrorists at Dikwa, Damboa and Gwoza to careful planning, infusion of new equipment and other war equipment as well as quality military leadership.

According to Buhari: “I am very happy to be here in Borno State once again. I consider Maiduguri and Borno State to be my home since this is the place where I cut my administrative and political teeth, when I first arrived here as Military Governor 46 years ago.

While I am happy to return home, I am not happy that this visit is not a normal, peacetime home-coming.

I am here today first and foremost to appraise the security situation in Borno State and the North East region in order to move full speed ahead and conclude the work of restoring permanent peace to the region.

The attacks launched by cowardly terrorists against military and civilian targets last month and in previous months were a pointer to us that the work of defeating insurgency and terrorism and of restoring permanent peace to this region is not yet over.

We will not rest until all the millions of Internally Displaced Persons are able to return and resettle in their homes and rebuild their shattered lives.”
