President during a bilateral meeting with the Emir of the State of Qatar,
Sheikh Tamim Bin Hammad Al-Thani, on Sunday said since he came into power in
2015 his administration has been able to defeat boko haram to a stage that it
is no longer in a position to cause serious threat to his administration’s
development programmes.
Also at the meeting, the President spoke about the situation
in the Middle East and commended the role Qatar is playing in resolving the
present Syrian crisis.
“The conflicts in Yemen and Syria, with their attendant
humanitarian crisis, need genuine international effort to solve.
“Nigeria as a peace-loving country identifies with the State
of Qatar in all her peace efforts in the world to end terrorist activities. Continue…

“Nigeria is a victim of terrorism. It is with heavy heart
that I stand before you and say activities of Boko Haram have led to loss of
many lives and displacement of innocent people in our dear nation.
“We, however, take pride to inform you that since our coming
to power, Boko Haram has been systematically decimated and are in no position
to cause serious threat to our development programmes.
“I wish to reiterate that Nigeria rejects violence and
extremism in all their ramifications, and we assure Your Highness that we are
with the State of Qatar in your efforts to fight terrorism and injustice in
your region and in the world at large,” President Muhammadu Buhari said.
