Nigeria’s Buhari spits fire, promises to eliminate Boko Haram, cycle of violence Updated for 2021


Updated: February 25, 2021

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday vowed to arrest the cycle of violence that has engulfed Africa’s most populous nation.

Boko Haram terror group and Fulani herdsmen have been blamed for the escalating violence in Nigeria in recent years.

“I am indeed quite impressed with gains and successes recorded in the area of conflict management and peace-building, which has returned this state to the path of relative peace.

“Let me express the Federal Government’s commitment to support and assist the Peace Building Agency in its effort to arrest the vicious cycle of violence and lay the foundation for sustainable peace in our country,” Mr. Buhari said in Jos, Plateau State at a Town Hall meeting.


He is in Plateau on a two-day official visit to the state. President Buhari who also launched the Plateau State Roadmap to Peace, congratulated the Governor for uniting the people of the state.


Why it matters: Plateau state has always experienced violent clashes and killings between Fulani Muslims and the local populations and Mr. Buhari’s visit is meant to seek ways to douse tension, and perhaps bring about peace.
