Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai, the Ex-Chief of Army Staff, COAS, has expressed confidence that the insurgency in the North East of the county especially Borno state will soon end.
Buratai made this known during the Pulling Out Parade held in his honour at the Mogadishu Cantonment in Abuja on Friday.
“Let me thank my governor, Professor Babagana Umara Zulum. He has been supportive to me and of course, the Nigerian Army, especially in the fight against insurgency,” Buratai said.
“He came with a unique leadership and I assure you that with the collectively effort of the Nigerian Army and the Borno State Government, there will be an end to insurgency within the shortest possible time.
“I want to urge the Chief of Army Staff to maintain the momentum and the pressure to rid these last vestiges of the terrorists in the north-east,” he added.
Buratai and the other service chiefs in the country resigned week and their resignation were immediately accepted by president, Muhammadu Buhari.
The Presidency also announced the appointment of new service chiefs to introduce new ideas to combat the overwhelming insecurity in the country.
