President Jonathan had declared a state of emergency in the three states about six months ago following unprecedented Killings by by Islamic Militant, Boko Haram.

In separate letter to the senate and the House of Representatives, the President asked the national Assembly members to review the period of the emergency as the first six months would end in the days ahead.

The President said the extension of another six month would ensure the military gets the job done and return normalcy to the troubled northern states.

“As a result of the laudable effort of our armed forces, we have achieved considerable gains.”  President Jonathan noted in his letter to the parliament.
