ABUJA (Sundiata Post) – The All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Organisation (APCPCO) has described as misleading and unfounded the rumour making the rounds in some media that the newly certificated President-in-Waiting, General Muhammadu Buhari (retired) has pledged to end the scourge of Boko Haram insurgency in the country, within two months.
In a swift clarification, through a signed statement in Abuja on Thursday, Mallam Garba Shehu, APCPCO’s Director of Media and Publicity said:
“His Excellency the President-Elect is still waiting to be sworn in on May 29. After the ceremony, he would need time to study the security situation and plan strategically with the security chiefs as to the way forward. Time is of essence here. Therefore, President Buhari didn’t and wouldn’t peg the decimation of terrorism from the country’s territories to just two months.
“The General was unequivocal about cleansing Boko Haram from our land; he would do a good job of it by giving a final permanent push to rid Nigeria of unscrupulous elements,” Shehu stressed
He continued: “The President-Elect said that much to the world media including the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) and Cable News Network (CNN). He never put a time-frame to when he would eliminate terrorists, and it would be unfair and mischievous for someone to ascribe to him what he hasn’t said.”
