Boko Haram’ll soon end – Buhari


President Muhammadu Buhari has assured Nigerians that the activities
of Boko Haram insurgents would soon become history.
The President gave the assurance on Thursday night when he hosted
members of the Kannywood entertainment industry at the Presidential
Villa, Abuja.
He said the federal government would not allow any group hiding under
religion to unleash terror on innocent citizens.
The President, who spoke in local language, said: “It’s totally wrong
for any believer in God to kill innocent people either in the Mosque,
Church or the market place.
“You can’t be shouting Allahu Akbar (Allah is Great), Allahu Akbar,
and killing innocent citizens and destroying properties all in the
name of God.
“It is either you don’t know what you are saying or you don’t even
believe in the existence of God Almighty. God has nothing to do with
injustice. So, now we are confronting them and by the grace of God we
will destroy them.”
President Buhari also commended his predecessor, Dr. Goodluck
Jonathan, for accepting defeat after the 2015 general elections.
“I will continue to hold former President Jonathan in high esteem as a
result of that singular act. He was in power as Deputy Governor,
Governor (Bayelsa), Vice-President and President, all for about 10
years and he voluntarily accepted defeat and surrendered power to me,”
he said.
He called on members of the Kannywood to use their talents in
promoting the culture of peaceful co-existence and unity among the
diverse socio-political groups in the country.
Also speaking, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr.
Boss Mustapha, said the President had been guaranteed at least five
million votes in the 2019 presidential election by the fans and
followers of the entertainers.
He urged the entertainers to use their platforms in the social media
in promoting the achievements of the present administration.
The SGF also thanked the entertainers for the roles they played in
2015 which contributed immensely to the victory of the President, and
called on them to repeat the same in 2019.
Representatives of the Kannywood entertainers, who spoke at the event,
pledged to mobilise support for the president and other All
Progressives Congress (APC) candidates in the 2019 general elections.
