Meanwhile, the chief of army staff, Tukur Buratai, described the recent attacks by the Boko Haram insurgents as the last kicks of a dying horse.
The Army boss disclosed this after the European parliament claimed there has not been progress in the fight against Boko Haram insurgents.
He consequently called on respected bodies not to make pronouncement that can affect the fight against insurgency.
Similarly, President Buhari has given an assurance that terrorism in the northeastern part of Nigeria will in no time become a thing of the past.
The president gave this assurance on Friday, January 24, as he received Janez Lenarcic, the European Union (EU)'s commissioner from crisis management in Abuja.
He said that just like in the Nigeria-Biafra civil war, the insurgency in the region will definitely be defeated, although it might time some time.
Also, Presidential media aide, Femi Adesina, has commented on the successes recorded in the administration of President Buhari in terms of security.
In his comparison between the government of President Buhari and that of former Nigerian leader, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, Adesina rated security high in the former.
Adesina said that although things are not at their best in this regard, they were worse in Jonathan's administration.
