The President noted that the recent achievements of the security agencies in the fight to defeat terrorism underscored his earlier position that the Boko Haram threat will soon be a thing of the past, adding that the military achievement “has shown that the Nigerian Army has been working assiduously to implement and carry out my directives to rout the insurgents by the end of this year.”
