Boko Haram Will Fade Away Soon - Jonathan

11 November 2011

Abuja — President Goodluck Jonathan, yesterday, described the terrorist attacks by the Boko Haram Islamic sect as "a temporary setback" which will soon be a thing of the past.

This came on the heels of the nation's quest for direct foreign investment which is the high point of the 2011 Economic summit.

Speaking at the on-going 17th Nigeria Economic Summit, NES 17, in Abuja, President Jonathan said that his administration was acquiring and deploying all necessary security infrastructure to defeat the sect in order to make the nation an investors' haven in her quest to be a key global economic power.

His words: "We are working very hard to provide a conducive atmosphere for investors. Although we currently have the Boko Haram problem, just like terrorist activities in other parts of the globe, but I can assure Nigerians and the global community that we will soon overcome. All those involved in 2010 Independence Day attacks have been arrested. We admit that our primary responsibility is to provide security and we are working on it. Book Haram is a temporary setback.
