0 comments

President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday said that he has not reneged on his promise to end Boko Haram and other forms of criminalities during his inauguration as President in 2015.

He prided that the subsequent decimation of the terror groups has shown that he kept his word.

According to the President, “I promised to put an end to Boko Haram insurgency, kidnapping and other forms of criminalities that have bedeviled our country during my inaugural speech as president.

“You will all agree with me that the successes we have achieved so far have restored our pride and honour the world over. Consequently, I want to sincerely thank Nigerians for believing in our government in spite of occasional outrages, coming together as a nation, irrespective of political, religious and ethnic affiliations in our strive to bring this menace to an end”.

Buhari, who spoke at the official induction of Nigerian Air Force Helicopters at the Eagle’s Square in Abuja, lauded the invaluable contributions of the security agencies towards the decimation of Boko Haram.

He noted that that “professionalism, capacity building and adequately equipping the armed forces and the other security agencies are major policies of this administration”.

The President particularly commended the contributions of the Nigerian Air Force in international security, peace-keeping and humanitarian operations in the African sub region which he said has placed the country as a reliable regional power.

According to him, the intervention of the Nigerian Air Power in places like The Gambia, Guinea-Konakri, Mozambique, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Mali, Guinea Bissau and Cameroon has been a source of pride.

He said, “I’m delighted to be here this morning to once again commission two Augusta 109 Power and MI17 into the Nigerian Air Force inventory. About a year ago, we commissioned two Augusta 109 Power Helicopter Gunships, which were procured from Italy.

“The platforms were subsequently inducted into the Nigerian Air Force inventory to boost the operational capability. This was necessary to improve the delivery of promised air power in support of our counter-terrorism and counter-insurgency efforts”.
