President Buhari has vowed not to rest until the dreaded Boko Haram sect is crushed.
Buhari said “I assure all Nigerians and friends of the country, once again, that my administration will not rest on its oars until the ungodly terrorist sect is totally eliminated from our country.”
He made this declaration during his maiden Children’s Day speech on Thursday, May 26, 2016.
He also said “As peace gradually returns to the insurgency-ravaged North-Eastern States, the Federal Government will continue to work diligently to ensure the rapid and full reintegration and rehabilitation of all internally displaced persons, including orphaned children in the region.
“We will also sustain and strengthen ongoing actions to protect children more effectively from violence, child-labour, child-trafficking, forced marriages and other related offences.”
Mr. President also called on the children to imbibe the attitude of service and patriotism, which he said is needed to make Nigeria great again.
He also said the youth have a significant role to play in the development of Nigeria and upholding of democratic institutions.
