Buhari speaks upfront on Boko Haram

19 October 2015, 16:27

Lagos - President Muhammadu Buhari would not be ashamed if he misses the deadline of defeating Boko Haram  by the end of the year.

Buhari revealed that Boko Haram might still be in the country after the December deadline, while speaking to the host of Aljazeera’s current affair program UpFront.

The Commander- In-Chief said that he will not resign if Boko Haram were still in Nigeria after December, but promised to keep fighting the terrorist group until he achieved the goal of returning peace in the country.

Buhari in remaining optimistic about the kidnapped Chibok schoolgirls said he will negotiate with Boko Haram to secure their release, and did not rule out financial payment  or prisoner exchange from the proposed negotiations.

 Buhari during the interview denied seeing a report released in June 2015 by Amnesty International that documents abuses, torture and unlawful killings by members of the Nigerian armed forces.

Nigerians would be eager to see how Buhari’s administration will use the report titled   ‘Nigeria: Stars on their shoulders: Blood on their hands’ to reduce civilian casualties, and in the final push to end the Boko Haram insurgence by December 31.
