Re-elect me, I’ll end Boko Haram, Jonathan tells Borno people

Pr e s i d e n t Goodluck Jonathan yesterday asked the people of Borno, the epicentre of Boko Haram insurgency, to re-elect him in the February 14 presidential election, promising to end the five-year insurgency if he gets the second term. Jonathan who was in Maiduguri yesterday for his presidential campaign promised to rescue the over 200 schoolgirls abducted in Chibok on April 14, 2014.

“I promise that we must surely conquer Boko Haram in our second term. We must also ensure that all the kidnapped people including the Chibok schoolgirls get back home. We must surely turn this state to a peace and loving place,” he told party supporters at Ramat Square.

He said he often felt very sad whenever some Nigerians alleged being involved in heightening insecurity in the north for political advantage, add­ing that no president in the world would involve in such thing.

“How can I do that? No president or leader any­where in the world will do that. I assure you we will make sure the insecurity problem is solved and recover communities taken over by Boko Haram. We will resettle people sacked from their communities,” he pledged.
