Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari stated that much work has to be done to address the country’s security concerns during his speech in Borno.
In his address to the troops of the Joint Task Force at the Maimalari Cantonment parade ground in Maiduguri, Borno State’s capital, on Thursday, Buhari praised the military personnel’s tenacity but reminded them that there was still much work to be done to completely restore peace to the North East, stem the activities of armed bandits in the North West and North Central, and deal with other issues.
The President said he was pleased to acknowledge that the military and other security agencies, including civilian stakeholders were adhering to the true spirit of Operation HADIN KAI which implies jointness, synergy and cooperation.
He also underlined that the results achieved in the ongoing Operation TURA TAKAIBANGO, which he claimed had so far reduced the insurgents’ capabilities in the Timbuktu Triangle, Sambisa Forest, and Lake Chad Region, were proof of inter-agency coordination.
