The President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan GCFR, said the Federal Government has resolved to crush the insurgency in the northern part of the country.
In live broadcast to the nation on democracy day, the president said his government was ready to confront the insurgents in the north, but was silent on the supposed dialogue with the Boko Haram sect.
“I wish to reassure every Nigerian, that we will confront this threat against our collective peace and security, and bring the perpetrators to justice. We will confront the few misguided persons, who falsely believe that through violence, they can impose their agenda of hate and division on this nation of good people. We will never yield to the forces of darkness. Nigeria will never, disintegrate,” the president said.
He also called on unity on the part of Nigerians to end the various challenges facing the country.
