President-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari, has told Nigerians not to expect miracles in the fight against insurgency when he takes over power on May 29.
While speaking with the BBC on Sunday, Buhari said that the war against insurgency was an ongoing one, noting that “for five, six years, the Nigerian enforcement law agencies, including the military, couldn’t secure 14 Local Governments.
“How can I promise miracles when I come? But with the cooperation of our neighbours Cameroon, Chad, Niger and the international community, and the commitment we are going to get from the military, I think it will take us a much shorter time to deal with it”, Buhari said.
On corruption and unemployment, the President-elect said: “I made that promise and I hope Nigerians will give me the opportunity to see whether my effort will be good enough or not.”
