The President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari has assured the military that his government would provide the necessary logistics needed to successfully prosecute the on-going war against the Boko Haram terrorists.

Speaking on behalf of the president, the National Security Adviser (NSA), Major General Babagana Munguno (rtd.), gave the reassurance during his visit to operational areas in the north-eastern part of the country in the company of the Service Chiefs and Inspector General of Police.

While addressing officers and men of the Nigerian Air Force in Yola, General Monguno said: “I am telling you this, and you can take it as if it is coming from Mr President himself that you are going to be given everything you require, not only for the operation but for your personal welfare. This is an assurance I want to give you.”

Against the background of the recent Presidential directive to the Service Chiefs to defeat the Boko Haram Terrorist (BHT) group in three months, the NSA gave the purpose of the operational visit as to enable his team to assess the situation on ground and relate with the troops with a view to adequately identify and address observed challenges facing the troops.

Speaking further, the NSA noted that the NAF has brought a lot of noticeable improvements in the war against the terrorists due to the aerial support provided to the ground troops, hence he commended NAF personnel for their commitment and patriotism while urging them to keep the spirit high and to remain steadfast in their resolve to stand-up against the Boko Haram Terrorists.

The operational areas visited by the NSA and his team include Damaturu, Maiduguri and Yola in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa states.
