President Buhari's Independence Speech

While receiving members of the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) from Kaduna, President-Elect, Muhammadu Buhari expressed his dissatisfaction with the Nigerian military over their inability to reclaim lost territories to Boko Haram. He said,

“The Nigerian military has never been so incapacitated like now. It is a shame that the military cannot secure 14 local governments out of the 774 local governments in the country. What is more worrisome is the fact that the military had to rely on South African machinery before it could gain recent success in the war against Boko Haram. My administration will concentrate on major areas on assumption of office, that is, insecurity, the economy, unemployment and corruption. We will ensure we nip the insecurity in the bud. The Nigeria Army could not do small thing, they have to bring in South African machinery to enable them record the recent gains in the Northeast. The morale of the security forces will be raised. The military is incapacitated, it is a shame that the military cannot secure 14 out 774 Nigerian local governments in the northeast. I don’t know how many of you know this. I got to know about it few days ago that the recent gains in the northeast were because South African mercenary was used.”he said
