President Goodluck Jonathan Promises To Deal With Boko Haram In Three Months

President Goodluck Jonathan has said that in the next three months the problem of Boko Haram insurgency would have been significantly eradicated. The President, a CNN interview monitored by our correspondent on Friday, said Nigeria’s “security architecture” was not prepared for the problem of terrorism.
He also said the country was not negotiating with Boko Haram contrary to opinions, but simply making attempts to “change their orientation”.
Jonathan said, “We are not negotiating with Boko Haram. It is done all over the world. It is not negotiation. We are not begging.

“Our security architecture was first designed to deal with ordinary criminals but since terror started, we have been building it. I believe if you are to interview me again in three months’ time, you will praise me that this government has tried.

“We are tackling terror from various angles. We must first of all stop them through military intervention, which we have initiated by declaring a state of emergency in three states where these terror attacks are predominant.”
