Dogara expressed hope that with the ongoing reorganisation of the security agencies by President Muhammadu Buhari, the insurgents would be stamped out.
The Speaker said a motion calling on the Federal government to convene an international donor conference for the rebuilding of the region had been drafted and would be considered by the House after the current recess.
The Boko Haram insurgency has claimed thousands of lives and displaced some 2 million people.
