President Muhammadu Buhari says yesterday’s bomb blast in Maiduguri, Borno State, has strengthened his administration’s resolve to completely neutralise Boko Haram insurgents.
President Buhari, in a message on his twitter handle, @MBuhari, condemned the attack and commiserated with the victims’ families and the state government.
"I am disheartened by the news of the bomb blast in Maiduguri. My condolences to the families of the victims and the Borno State Government.
"Unable to hold territory, the severely degraded terrorist group now occasionally resorts to cowardly attacks on soft targets.
"I commend our military for their unflagging efforts. This attack has further strengthened our resolve to completely neutralise Boko Haram," the president stated.
