President Muhammadu Buhari has again declared that his administration has recorded a significant progress towards ending the Boko Haram insurgency in the North Eastern zone of Nigeria.
Mr. President made the declaration Monday at a meeting with the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Mr. Ban Ki Moon on the sidelines of the World Future Energy Summit, holding in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirate (UAE).
President Buhari explained that in collaboration with the Multinational Joint Task Force, the Nigerian Armed Forces have driven the terrorist group from Nigerian territory into “fall-back positions”.
“They are currently not holding any territory today as we speak,” the President told Mr. Ban Ki Moon.
He also informed the UN Scribe that Nigeria would persistently pursue global action to reverse the drying up of Lake Chad and save the lives of those who depend on it for survival.
“With all due respect to our neighbours, Nigeria has been worst hit by the drying up of the Lake Chad and we are hoping that the global community will support the process of halting the drying up of the lake,” President Buhari said.
Mr. Ban Ki Moon in his remarks commended Buhari for his courage in fighting terrorism and corruption.
He said Nigeria has made amazing progress against terrorism since President Buhari assumed office, while his war against corruption has boosted global confidence in the Nigerian economy.
He urged President Buhari to integrate the UN Sustainable Development Goals into Nigeria’s economic and environmental vision
