Even Opposition Recognise My Achievement On Terror Fight - Buhari
Opposition parties may deny President Muhammadu Buhari’s achievements but one thing they are certain about is his triumph against terrorism.
That was Buhari’s declaration on Saturday as he beat his chest about his administration’s efforts at combatting the dreaded cut-throat Islamic terror group, Boko Haram.
He said his government had degraded the Boko Haram sect to the point that even “the opposition party” recognises that there is a considerable improvement of security in the North East.
He did not name the political party he was referring to but the Peoples Democratic Party is believed to be the major opposition party in the country.
According to a statement by his aide, Garba Shehu, the President spoke during a bilateral meeting with Prime Minister Shahid Khakan Abbasi of Pakistan, on the sidelines of the 9th D-8 summit in Istanbul, Turkey.
“We have moved them out from their strongholds in the North East, we have denied them space and even their attacks on soft targets are becoming less often.
“Even the opposition (party) recognises that there is a considerable improvement of security in the North East,” he said.
