Nigerian Governors are hopeful that the story of the deadly attacks by Boko Haram will be different by the second quarter of 2016.
The Chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum, Governor Abdul’aziz Yari, gave the governors position in a meeting with some members of the British Parliament in Abuja on Saturday.
Governor Yari told the visiting parliamentarians that the government and security operatives were working daily to end the activities of Boko Haram in the nation’s northeast and make the area safe.
“When you go to the UK, the only thing Nigeria is pronounced known today is about Boko Haram.
“Boko Haram, day by day, is becoming something of the past. By the second quarter of this year, the story will be something different.
“That, we can achieve and we have seen the achievement because some of the IDPs are planning to start going back to their towns by the end of first quarter of this year,” he stressed.
The Governor of Zamrafa State added that the government wanted to end the insurgency so that foreign investments in the country could increase.
“Insecurity is a global issue that has its own time to be discussed. But in Nigeria, we are working harder to ensure that peace returns for investors to come in and invest,” he told the British Parliament Members.
Governor Yari further said Nigeria was a market for everyone, with its estimated population of over 160 million.
“It is a big market for everyone to come and put his investment,” he stated. (Channels TV)
