Boko Haram is fraudulent, supported by international groups, says President Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday in Kano blamed international groups that want to destroy Nigeria are behind the plight of Boko Haram that we have faced.

He spoke at Government House Kano at a lunch after commissioning projects executed by Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, adding that it is fraudulent even by the name given to the terror group.

“When we came into power in 2015, Boko Haram was in control in 13 of the 27 local governments of the state, only four were with the government then.

“More so, half of the local governments in Yobe state were with Boko Haram.

“Today with the help of a patriotic and dedicated governor in Borno state, local governments have been recovered.

“What is Boko Haram? It is very fraudulent. I suspect there’s an international group that wants to destroy Nigeria. If not, how can Boko (western education) be Haram?, the President stated.

“I want you to recall that between 1999 and 2019 the NNPC production was 2.1 billion barrels per day at the cost of 100 dollars per barrel. So Nigeria was earning 100 dollars per barrel for 2.1 million barrels a day, but look at our infrastructure. 

“Some of them are 60 years old, look at our power sector, what can advance without infrastructure? 

But those in charge in those years were going around not only in Nigeria but the world saying they are wonderful but they cannot explain what they have done. 

But the cost of petroleum today has gone down to about 37 dollars per barrel in which only 1.5 million barrels are produced and yet we have put in place a lot of infrastructure. Look at what we have been able to do” Buhari added.

Buhari, praised the performance of his administration especially how it has been able to provide more infrastructure with lesser available funds when compared to the past regime.

He finally thanked Nigerians for the support and cooperation as well as the chance to serve them.

Speaking earlier, Governor Abdullahu Umar Ganduje appreciated President Buhari for identifying with the good people of Kano state.

Ganduje also enumerated some of the achievements recorded under his administration in the last seven and a half years in power which includes Muhammad Buhari interchange road, Cancer center, Dangote skill acquisition centers among others.
