Boko Haram Challenge is a Temporary Setback – President Jonathan Goodluck

Nov 10, 2011 – Boko Haram Challenge is a Temporary Setback – President Jonathan Goodluck

In a recent statement made by President Jonathan Ebele Goodluck during a  Presidential dialogue with Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) of global corporations on Nigerian’s political leadership at the 17th Nigerian Economic Summit (NES) in Abuja today. …

Terrorism is a global phenomenon. We are very much aware of what happened in England during the IRA uprising. We are doing all we can to bring the issue to an end. The issue of Boko Haram that we are experiencing today in Nigeria is nothing new globally. Most countries of the world had experienced terrorist attacks in their long history. These are temporary challenges we have and definitely we shall get over it.

Message Of Reassurance To Nigerians

“Let me reassure Nigerians and indeed the world in general that even with the limited technology we have, the Nigerian security agencies have done well. Look at the October 1, 2010 bombing experience, all the people that were involved have been arrested and prosecuted. Most of the countries that are more sophisticated that us have done nothing to that stage.  (http://www.naijagists.com)

“Yes we have the Boko Haram challenge now, but just like other terrorist attacks in other parts of the globe, we are working on it. It is not as if the security services and the government are not doing anything about the situation, we are working round the clock to bring the issue under control. The challenge is only a temporary setback and we shall get over it,”

We think Nigerians want action and not tough talks.
