In another melodrama, the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari has applauded the six years efforts of his predecessor, Dr Goodluck Jonathan, to keep Nigeria united and peaceful, especially when he conceded defeat in the last presidential election.
In his speech today Wednesday, February 3, 2016, during the European Union parliament’s plenary session in Strasbourg, France, President Buhari emphasized that Dr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan did what no Nigerian leader had ever done since the history of the country.
Buhari who stated that democracy has come to Nigeria to stay, sooner than expected, stressed that Nigeria will be regarded as one of the strongest in Africa, but noted that strife may arise in the process, but added that it would not be beyond what can be contained.
Recalling the drama during the last presidential election, where Godsday Orubebe created a scene at the collation centre, Buhari deduced that the maturity with which Professor Attahiru Jega led Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)  helped Nigeria avert a major crisis and noted that Nigeria’s problems are poverty, disease and technological backwardness.
PMB assured the Parliament that his administration is committed to ensuring that the missing Chibok secondary school girls are returned and reunited with their parents, adding that the government will not rest until the girls are rescued alive and reunited to their parents.
He noted that the Nigerian Armed Forces has been repositioned  to deal decisively with the Boko Haram terrorists, stressing that Adamawa, Borno and Yobe states local government areas where the insurgents once dominated have been gradually recaptured.
The President Buhari emphatically said that the activities of Boko Haram have been restricted to Sambisa Forest.
