President Muhammadu Buhari Wednesday met behind closed doors with the service chiefs at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja.

The meeting, which was held inside the president’s office, was also attended by the Minister of Defence, Brigadier-General Mansur Dan-Ali (retd).

The service chiefs left the Presidential Villa without speaking to journalists.

It was, however, gathered that the meeting was on the ongoing counter-terrorism efforts of the Federal Government.

Later yesterday, President Buhari, who had given the service chiefs December 2015 as deadline to end the Boko Haram insurgency, blamed the previous government of Goodluck Jonathan at all levels for the inability to defeat the sect. He decried what he called “abuse of trust in the purchase of equipment and other ammunition to fight the war against Boko Haram.”

The Commander-in-Chief of the Armed forces was speaking while addressing members of the House of Representatives, whom he hosted to a presidential dinner at the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa.

Buhari described as unfortunate, a situation where the Nigerian Army which defended Africa in peacekeeping operations, could not engage Boko Haram.

He said that the millions of naira and dollars expended by the past administration could not be properly utilised.

The President called on the members of the House to support him in the fight and expressed optimism that the war on Boko Haram must be won.

He also gave the assurance that his administration is making concerted efforts to raise the moral of the soldiers and get the necessary equipment.
