President Bola Tinubu has vowed to completely root out every agent of darkness, be it Boko Haram, Ansaru, bandits or kidnappers to secure the country.

Tinubu made the vow at the Public Presentation of Books on the administration of former President Muhammadu Buhari titled: “Working with Buhari: Reflections of a Special Adviser, Media and Publicity (2015-2023), and Muhammadu Buhari, The Nigerian Legacy, 2015 to 2023,” on Tuesday in Abuja.

“I must say the job of securing every inch of our country is yet to be finished. My government will stamp out the remaining vestiges of Boko Haram, Ansaru, banditry, and kidnapping gangs. We won’t rest until every agent of darkness is completely rooted out”, he said.

Tinubu who was happy to have been reunited with former President Buhari at the Book Launch noted that President Buhari assumed office at a very difficult period in the country when the economy was spiralling into recession and Boko Haram had taken over swaths of the nation’s territory in the North East.

He said, at a point, it appeared, Abuja, the seat of government would fall into the hands of Boko Haram with the bombing of the UN Building, Banex Plaza, Nyanya, and other locations within the Federal Capital Territory.

“We cannot easily forget how our armed forces battled the Boko Haram terrorists under the leadership of President Buhari to reclaim our territory and push them to the fringes of Lake Chad where they no longer pose existential threat to our sovereignty”, he recalled.

President Tinubu noted that beyond what the editor of the book recorded as the achievements of President Buhari in his eight years as a democratically-elected President, history will also be kind to him as the leader who promoted local production of goods to grow our economy.

“It will be said glowingly of President Buhari that in his eight turbulent years, marked by acute shortage of revenue, Covid-19 pandemic that shut down the global economy for almost two years, his administration embarked on the most ambitious infrastructural renewal for the country”, he said.

Tinubu who said that Buhari served the country with dedication and uncommon zeal, said, the authors of the books did justice to the essential of Muhammadu Buhari, especially on his tenure and legacy as the 15th President of Nigeria.
