KanyiDaily recalls that Buratai had last week relocated to the North East in order to oversee the overall operations of the war against insurgency and other Nigerian Army operations across the country.
Speaking at Ngamdu Special Super Camp on Monday, Buratai assured the Nigerian troops fighting Boko Haram insurgency in the North East that he would be with them in the region until the insurgents are defeated.
“I won’t return to Abuja until Boko Haram is defeated,” he said.
Buratai, who regretted that the insurgency had lasted for too long, gave assurances that in no time the Boko Haram elements would be defeated.
“You may wonder that this counter-insurgency operation has lingered for too long, we all know globally that counter terrorism is very complex. There are some countries that have fought counter terrorism for close to 50years. But we’re not going to leave it, we will not leave this camp.
“We are here, we will not leave this camp until we substantially degrade these criminals. By God’s willing, we shall be there with you no going back once we commence. We will be with you in the valleys, on the hill, in the jungle, in the river and so on. As I speak now, we have some element that are providing us necessary intelligence and once we start, no going back. We are here and we make sure that we get ourselves properly motivated, properly equipped and I assure you will have the best of time.
“Some of you have been here before like two three times but I tell you, we are going to have the best of time. We want the best out of you. We need your courage and determination. I want you to have at the back of your minds that Mr. President is solidly behind you. We have already started getting the consignment of what we require for us to handle these insurgency and terrorism. It a matter of time and a very short time”, he said.
Buratai added: “If I ask you a question, will you answer me? The question is, is anybody ready to chicken out?”. To which the troops chorused a thunderous ‘no’.
