Lai Mohammed the Minister of Information and Culture has stated that no administration in the history of the country has risen to the challenge of fighting terrorism than the Buhari government.
On Sunday Mohammed said this in a statement while denying the allegation by the United State based non-profitable organisation, Global Advocates for Terrorism Eradication (GATE), that the federal government of Nigeria has been sponsoring terrorism.
Nigeria has received commendations for tackling home-grown terrorism according to the minister.
He said ”In the fight against terrorism, Nigeria has availed itself creditably by tackling home-grown terrorists with links to global terrorist organisations. We are bold to say that no administration in Nigeria has risen to the challenge of terrorism like the Buhari-led administration has done.
”The acquisition of a myriad of platforms, the boost to the morale of our fighting forces and the leadership provided by President Muhammadu Buhari have combined to put our gallant troops in good stead to frontally confront and put on the run the terrorists. Fittingly, Nigeria’s efforts at tackling terrorism have been hailed globally.
”What our gallant men and women need at this time is the support, encouragement, and prayers of all, not the distracting antics of a relevance-seeking, feckless organisation masquerading as a terrorism eradication advocate,”.
