Buhari and Shekau

The Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Abayomi Olonisakin, has revealed that the Federal Government led by President Muhammadu Buhari spent over $2.6 billion to address the humanitarian challenges caused by Boko Haram terrorists in 2016.

General Olonisakin who made this disclosure in Washington, D.C. at the meeting of the ‘Global Coalition Working to Defeat ISIS’ on Thursday, noted that Nigeria’s effort to defeat the Boko Haram terrorists was part of wider efforts to combat violent extremism globally, especially the defeat of ISIS.

“After over $2.6 billion was spent by the Nigerian Government to address humanitarian needs in 2016 – more needs were seen when areas were recovered from Boko Haram.” He said.

The Chief of Defence Staff also emphasized the role of the coalition to defeat terrorists, drawing from the Boko Haram experience.

According to him, “The multinational joint task force is a good example of how a coalition can help tackle terrorism and extremism – in our case, the terrorist group Boko Haram which is a threat to collective global security.

“Many in this room joined us in Oslo, Norway just last February to show support with Nigeria.
“Coalition is fundamental. We, therefore, commend Secretary Rex Tillerson and President Donald Trump for remaining committed to fighting the global enemy of us all – terrorism.

“This meeting, therefore, will further strengthen our collective resolve and determination to destroy and defeat ISIS.

“To this end, Nigeria is prepared to work with the coalition in the pursuit of the first lines of efforts towards the realization of the aims of the global coalition.
