Interesting Photos: Buhari Receives Boko Haram Flag,Says Not East Madness Must Stop


Abuja, President Muhammadu Buhari late Friday
evening formally received the flag retrieved by
troops from the stronghold of the Boko Haram
sect, Sambisa Forest, last week.
The black flag with white Arabic inscriptions and
pictures of two rifle was presented to Buhari by
the Theatre Commander, Operation Lafiya Dole,
Maj.-Gen. Lucky Irabor, at the 2016 Regimental
Dinner organised by the Presidential Brigades of
Guards, in Abuja.

The dinner was organised to mark the end of
drilling year of the military men.
Buhari, himself a former military officer, recalled
how he was nearly shot at before he collected
his first salary after joining the Army.
He said he was conversant with the problems of
the military having experienced it first hand.
He said, “I belive you are here because you
want to be here and you cannot complain. We
will do our best to build the national institutions
in the country.
“All these madness in the country whether in
the North East, the Niger Delta or in the East
must stop.
“There are 250 ethnic groups, so keeping
Nigeria one is a task that must be done. So
even for personal reason, you must make sure
this country remains one and remains strong.”
Buhari reiterated his opposition to the calls for
devaluation of the naira and increase of prices
of petroleum products among others.
He recalled that he rejected similar advice by
the International Monetary Fund and World Bank
to devalue the naira as a military Head of State.
“I refused and gave my reasons and the next
thing I knew I was removed and detained for
three and half years.

“As a civilian President, I will do my best and I
am telling you all these because you are part of
the leadership of this great country and God
willing we will remain great,” he said.
The Chief of Army Staff. Gen. Tukur Buratai, in
his remarks urged men and women of the
Guards Brigade to remain courageous and
disciplined in 2017.
He assured the nation that the military would
continue the mopping up of the remnants of the
insurgents who have disappeared into the
society.
Buratai further assured the country that the
security situation in parts of the country will be
surmounted, adding that the Nigerian Army will
remain apolitical in carrying out its duties to the
nation.
