Confront terrorists, wipe them off the earth, Buhari tasks military

- July 14, 2022

The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd,) has charged the Nigerian Armed Forces to descend on terrorists and other criminal elements and wipe them out.

Buhari spoke at the graduation of the 247 of the Senior Course 44 of the Armed Forces Command and Staff College, Jaji, near Kaduna State, on Thursday.

The President promised that his administration would continue to provide the needed support required to wipe out the hoodlums terrorising the country.

Buhari said, “The Armed Forces Command and Staff College has been pivotal to the achievements of the Armed Forces of Nigeria. Furthermore, the College provides a broad platform for training members of the Armed Forces of friendly countries and Senior Course 44 is no exception.

“This graduation is a milestone in the careers of the 247 graduating students today. You have made a success of this course after 48 daunting weeks and I say to you all, congratulations!

“It is particularly gratifying to note that amongst the graduating students are international officers from sister African countries. Gentlemen, I am confident that you have enjoyed our friendliness during your stay here. I am also sure you would have observed that despite our diversity and challenges, Nigeria is still one of the most hospitable and enjoyable countries to visit and stay.

The response of the Armed Forces of Nigeria to the Boko Haram insurgency, banditry, militancy, kidnapping as well as the activities of separatists and armed militias amongst others have been commendable.

“We have witnessed recent terrorist attacks in Nigeria bearing the hallmark of national and trans-border insurgents trying to cause havoc in Nigeria as well as in neighbouring countries.

“It’ll be part of your duty to confront these terrorists and insurgents and wipe them off the face of the earth and bring peace to our countries.”

“This government will continue to provide the required guidance and support to ensure that the desired results are achieved.”
