“They have stood by us through the worst and most difficult times of the challenges we have faced with terrorism. You also have our support during this difficult time.”

He added that it was sad and pitiful that the terrorists had extended their brutal attacks to the neighbouring country, but expressed hope that it was only a matter of time before the insurgents would be flushed out and dealt with.

The President also consoled the people and government of Borno State over the loss of over 60 lives from explosion triggered by abandoned explosives in Monguno town.

He assured the people of Borno state of the commitment of his administration to degrade the insurgency which had necessitated the relocation of the command centre of the military to its hotbed.

“Crushing Boko Haram will remain a priority of my government,” Buhari said.
