Boko Haram: Coalition hails Zulum’s appraisal on the return of Peace under Buhari

The Coalition for Truth and Justice (CTJ) has applauded Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno State for identifying with President Muhammadu Buhari’s efforts towards the war against insurgency in Nigeria.

According to the coalition, the governor displayed “exemplary leadership in governance” by admitting to improved security in his state and the entire North-East in the last six years.

Recall that Zulum had acknowledged records of the security situation in the Borno have shown that they are better off security-wise under the Buhari administration than Goodluck Jonathan.

He said records taken from 2011 from the 27 local government areas of the state indicate clearly that Buhari has still performed better in the handling of Borno’s security challenges.

Speaking at a press conference on Tuesday in Abuja, CTJ’s National Coordinator, Barrister Timothy Charles said Zulum’s display of rare sincerity of heart and purpose is indeed commendable and a testament to the giant strides recorded by the Nigeran Military in the fight against insurgency in Nigeria.

While hailing the governor for being “patriotic and honest on issues concerning the war against insurgency”, the coalition hoped that someday all Nigerians would appreciate the efforts of the president despite the campaign of calumny.

It also commended the efforts of officers and soldiers of the Nigerian Military that have exhibited a great sense of commitment in the past six years.

The Coalition for Truth and Justice, however, pledged its support to the efforts of the Buhari administration in the fight against insurgency in Nigeria.

Read the full statement below:

The Coalition for Truth and Justice warmly welcomes all to this press conference put together given the recent development in the country with regards to the war against insurgency in Nigeria.

The exigencies of time require a display of sincerity of heart and of purpose by those on whose shoulders that task of leadership falls on in Nigeria.

Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno State falls in this category of leaders who speak power to the truth, and this was exemplified in his recent statement wherein he stated that since the coming of President Muhammadu Buhari, there had been a substantial improvement in the fight against Boko Haram insurgency in North-East Nigeria and Borno state in particular.

The Coalition for Truth and Justice views the actions of Governor Babagana Zulum as a rare display of sincerity of heart and purpose which is indeed commendable and a testament to the giant strides recorded by the Nigeran Military in the fight against insurgency in Nigeria.

Governor Babagana Zulum in his capacity as the governor of Borno State is in a much better position to comment on the war against insurgency in North-East Nigeria and this much he has done by highlighting the fact that since the coming of the Muhammadu Buhari administration there has been a substantial improvement in the fight insurgency in North-East Nigeria.

In his words, “There were daily attacks and bomb blasts in many parts of Maiduguri, the most populated part of the state but all of these have stopped under Buhari” these words have indeed confirmed that the Boko Haram terrorist group have been decimated in North-East Nigeria, but for Borno state still experiencing pockets of Boko Haram attacks which can thus be classified as the final kick of a dying horse.

The Coalition for Truth and Justice consequently views the posture of Governor Babagana Zulum as patriotic and honest on issues concerning the war against terrorism in Nigeria. It is also laudable and a great display of sincerity of heart and purpose.

It is also our firm belief that given the revelation by Governor Babagana Zulum, Nigerians would come to appreciate the efforts of President Muhammadu Buhari in addressing the security challenges in the country.

Nigerians would also realize that there have been concerted efforts by the Nigerian Military towards taking the battle to the Boko Haram insurgents and that the bulk of the news making the rounds about Boko Haram insurgents controlling some parts of North-East Nigeria is fake news and the handiwork of mischief makers and political merchants that have been rendered out of business since the coming of the Muhammadu Buhari administration in 2015.

This much the Coalition for Truth and Justice has stated in numerous forums that there is a well-orchestrated campaign to undermine the operations of the Nigerian Military in North-East Nigeria by some unscrupulous individuals and groups that are not happy with the progress recorded in the fight against insurgency in the country.

The Coalition for Truth and Justice is also aware that some vested external interest has been rendering covert logistics support to the Boko Haram group. Despite this fact, the Nigerian Military has been able to make substantial gains in the war against insurgency. This is indeed a testament of the professionalism of the Nigerian Military, which is a function of transparency and accountability in its operations since the coming of the Muhammadu Buhari administration.

The Coalition for Truth and Justice is using this medium to commend Governor Babagana Zulum for rising to the occasion and putting issues in proper perspectives with regards to the efforts of the Muhammadu Buhari led administration towards ending the Boko Haram insurgency in North-East Nigeria.

We are also commending the efforts of officers and soldiers of the Nigerian Military that have exhibited a great sense of commitment in the past six years that has seen to the many gains recorded in the theatre of operations such as the reclaiming of over 16 local government areas once under the control of the Boko Haram terrorist, the sacking of Sambisa Forest, the operational headquarters of the Boko Haram group, the clearance operations of the activities of the Boko Haram group in five states in North-East Nigeria, but for Borno state still experiencing pockets of attacks.

This is indeed noteworthy and calls for concerted efforts from Nigerians in support of the efforts of the Muhammadu Buhari administration in the fight against insurgency in North-East Nigeria.

The Coalition for Truth and Justice is using this medium to pledge its support to the efforts of the Muhammadu Buhari administration in the fight against insurgency in Nigeria.

It is hoped that other well-meaning individuals and groups would toe the same line in our quest for the final decimation of the Boko Haram terrorist group in Nigeria.

It can thus be stated that there have been considerable efforts by the Muhammadu Buhari administration in ensuring the security of lives and properties in Nigeria.

We thank you all for taking out time to attend this press conference; we desire that you take the message to your various constituencies on the efforts so far in the fight against insurgency and the need for all hands to be on deck.
