The Embarrasment Of BokoHaram Will End In A Few Months –

President Goodluck Jonathan has
assured that the embarrassment caused
by Boko Haram insurgents will end in no
distant future.
He restated his government's
commitment to building strong security
agencies so as to deal with the current
security challenges in the country.
The President stated this when he paid
homage to the Ooni of Ife, Oba
Okunade Sijuwade at Ile-Ife, Osun State
yesterday before proceeding to the
venue of the mega rally of the Peoples
Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for
the August 9 governorship election in
the state, Dr. Iyiola Omisore.
The president described members of the
Boko Haram sect as rascals, vowing to
rout them.
Jonathan said, "There are certain things
we should have done as a government,
but because of the situation in the
country, we have not been able to do
much of them. The kind of
embarrassment we are receiving now
will never continue in this country.
"We want to build a very strong army,
the Nigeria police and the Navy and
the Airforce so that these rascals called
Boko Haram will never stop us because
we will surely rout Boko Haram. We are
very committed. In the next few months,
no criminal will ever embarrass us
again in this country," he said. The
president said Omisore will work with
the Federal Government to bring
development to Osun State should he
become governor.
Earlier in his address, the Ooni of Ife
said the people in the South West and
Osun State in particular needed a better
feel of federal government's presence in
the key areas of Jonathan's
transformation agenda.
"For instance, in the area of agriculture,
cocoa farming which is the mainstay of
the economy of Southwest deserves
better attention. In the aviation sector, it
would be appreciated if the on-going
upgrading of the Ibadan airport is
completed. In the transportation sector,
it is high time our railway system was
expanded to link the Southwest with the
Southeast through Akure, Owo and
Benin," he said.
Jonathan also paid homage to the
Ataoja of Osogbo, Oba Jimoh
