Abuja - President Goodluck Jonathan assured the European outgoing representative to Nigeria his administration had made significant strides in combating terror.
He told David Mac Rae, who was also the representative of the European bloc to the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), the federal government would do everything possible to further enhance security in all parts of the country.
“As a government, we are doing everything possible to improve our country on all fronts. We are consistently adapting our security architecture to deal with terrorism which has become a challenge to the whole world.
“Boko Haram is being progressively weakened but we are not resting on our oars. We will continue to do everything possible to achieve greater security for all who reside within our borders,” the President said.
Affirming that there are many positive things happening in the country, Jonathan said his administration was committed to correcting negative perceptions about the country such as the notion of widespread insecurity and corruption.
He welcomed declaration by the outgoing ambassador that he had recently travelled to the Niger Delta and some Northern States and found the areas calm.
He urged Rae to assist in correcting current misconceptions about Nigeria by taking that positive message to the EU and the rest of the world.
Jonathan commended EU for its support towards improving the electoral process in Nigeria. - CAJ News
