Insecurity: We’re winning war against Boko Haram – President Tinubu

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has said Nigeria’s security forces are coming up victorious in the war against insurgents and other criminals in the North-West.

He spoke on Monday at the North-West Peace and Security Summit organized by the North-West Governors’ Forum in Katsina, the capital of Katsina State.

The President, represented by Vice President, Kashim Shettima, assured Nigerians that the progress made so far in the fight against Boko Haram is just the beginning as the government is making more effort to provide a better secure environment for all citizens.

He said the strategies employed by the government in fighting insecurity in the region have begun to provide redemption, adding that there will be no slowdown until the aim of totally dismantling insurgents is achieved.

Tinubu also said that guidelines, such as standard operating procedures and rules of engagement, are being adhered to in all the approaches in the battle against insurgents.

The President added that the government is coordinating joint training exercises, inter-agency cooperation, communication, and information sharing among security agencies.

He said; “Our military forces, through various operations such as Operation Hadin Kai and Operation Safe Haven, have made true their promise to the nation by targeting like Boko Haram and bandits who have held for too long.

“Through enhanced border security and intelligence capabilities, we have disrupted and dismantled criminal networks. Each of you here is aware of the high-profile figureheads of these groups neutralized by our forces, and I am here to share with you that this is just the beginning”.
