Jonathan vows to wipe out Boko Haram

The president yesterday paid an unscheduled visit to Kano following Friday’s bomb blast that left more than 170 people dead.

President Goodluck Jonathan while in Kano vowed that the Federal Government would soon wipe out the dreaded, Boko Haram Islamic sect, pleading with Nigerians to join hands with security agencies by exposing suspicious elements within their neighborhood.

He made this statement at the palace of the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero.

The President said security would be strengthened in Kano State and other places across the country, adding that the Federal Government would not rest until terrorism was wiped out in the country.

He said;

“Those causing havoc will never succeed, Kano has been in peace since the Boko Haram insurgence. The Federal Government will not rest until the perpetrators are brought to book.

“The people doing this are not spirits, they are among us. I seek the cooperation of all towards getting those involved in the havoc arrested.

“I can assure you that we will intensify security in Kano and all over the nation to look at our neighbours to know what they do, to enable us to fish out these miscreants

“Let us police ourselves because if we don’t, one day, it may be against us. We will not rest until these terrorist are wiped out.”

The Inspector General of Police, Alhaji Hafiz Ringim, was not among the president’s entourage. This generated curiosity among the residents.


  1. Salam.
    Thank you very much Mr. President having got an opportunity went to those victimised in a recent terrible bomb blast in Kano. Sir, I felt happy the way you address the Kano State people as well as the entire nation generally, may Allah grant a continues effort to withstand on this issue. However, I want appeal to Mr. President that the most targeted and prone people to every calamity are police officers followed by the innocent ones, any crises occurred they are the most responsible people to confront the situation being them as the security officers/personnels, I want to remind you Sir, that if we consider with what this people were earning (SALARY) is very mega in respect of the battle they always exposed to, meanwhile, a times these people used to retire or rather die even their benefit is hardly to get in time to their family, perhaps, if we can look at it very well, they neither enjoy during live hood nor to the family after death. So Sir, with due respect, I wish your favourable government will look into it urgently to increase the salary of this scarifies people so that motivation might be render unto them beyond reasonable doubt please, may God bless Nigeria bring peace stability and Unity to the entire nation Amin thank you.

  2. I really thank Mr. President 4 bringing solutions to this attrocities. I pray dat this will not be a promise and fail,(not business as usual) that everything is going 2 be as he had said, cos these are human being that are been killed not goats. Imagine 190 people died in kanu! how many people remain in Nigeria now? We are angry and I pray that God wil never leave all these evil men unpunished in Jesus name AMEN .

  3. God wuld judge u by wot u do. Bkoz neither d bible nor d quran agries w4th killng

  4. Mr. President,
    The blank truth is that governments don’t usually negotiate with renegates and terorists, but at the same time governments don’t just go round killing people like renegates and terrorists also. Those arrested should please be takan to courts of law and because Nigerians and the rest of the world have the right to know what is happening it shoud be well covered by media. We are now under democratic rule, please differentiate it with military misrule. God bless Nigeria.
