Buhari vows to end Boko Haram insurgency
The Federal Government, on Tuesday, reaffirmed its commitment to ending Boko Haram insurgency, saying it would ensure that the menace was completely eliminated.
President Muhammadu Buhari stated this at the opening of the International Conference on Insurgency in Kano State.
Buhari, who was represented by the Minister of Interior, Lt.-Gen. Abdurrahman Dambazau (rtd), said the government was determined to end the sufferings of victims of insurgency, especially in the North-East.
The conference was organised by the Centre for Islamic Civilisation and Interfaith Dialogue, Bayero University, Kano, in collaboration with Information Institute of Islamic Though, Nigeria Office and Kano State Government.
According to him, the Federal Government will do everything possible to ensure that victims of the attacks return to their respective towns and villages to enable them to continue with their normal lives.
He noted that the activities of Boko Haram insurgents had led to the destruction of schools, worship places and other public structures, and stressed the need for concerted effort to rebuild.
“We must continue to support our youths to make sure that lack of employment does not create problems in our country again.
“We must also strengthen our various institutions so as to guide our youths to be self-reliant and be able to contribute their quota toward the development of the country,” he said.
Buhari commended Kano, Borno, Yobe and other states for taking care of Internally Displaced Persons in their respective states.
