President Muhammadu Buhari during his presidential independent address to the nation yesterday, said we have defeated the dreaded group, Boko Haram.
In his speech he said, today is a day of celebration for Nigeria as she achieved the most important of all human desires, freedom and independence, 56 years ago.
He continued by saying, ‘On Security, we have made progress. Boko Haram was defeated by last December, only resorting to cowardly attacks on soft targets, killing innocent men, women and children. Nigerians should thank our gallant men of the Armed Forces and Police for rescuing large areas of the country captured by insurgents. Now, residents in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa States, as well as several neighboring states go about their daily business in relative safety. People can go to mosques, churches, market places in reasonable safety.
