Buhari govt has reduced Boko Haram to almost nothing – Festus Keyamo

According to Festus Keyamo, Minister of State for Labour and Employment, President Muhammadu Buhari’s government has reduced Boko Haram’s dominance to “almost nothing,” Charmingpro reports 

Keyamo, who claimed that the Buhari administration inherited the Boko Haram problem, also acknowledged that the terrorists have not been completely eradicated.

During an interview with on Monday, the spokesperson for the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign spoke.

“What did we inherit?” he asked. The Boko Haram problem was passed down to us. They had taken over more than fourteen local governments in the northeast at the time and raised their flags. We inherited the farmers-herders conflict that had existed prior to [Olusegun] Obasanjo’s presidency. These are existential quandaries.


“What have we done to address those two issues?” El-Kanemi Football Club of Borno, which was playing their football matches in Bauchi due to insecurity—nobody could gather in one place in Maiduguri to watch a football match—is now back in Maiduguri, and that is success.

“Boko Haram has not been completely eradicated, but it has been significantly reduced as a result of our constructive engagement with our neighbors.” We whittled them down to almost nothing. I’m not saying these things have been completely eradicated, but they have been significantly reduced in comparison to what we encountered and what we have.
