Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari has said forces outside the country are the one sponsoring Boko Haram.
Buhari, who spoke at the Presidential Town Hall meeting, tagged: “The Candidates,” on Wednesday urged Nigerians to support his administration to defeat Boko Haram.
According to him Nigeria’s military needed lots of equipment to defeat the insurgent.
In his words, “We need a lot of money for the military for spare parts, communication gadgets, arms and ammunition. Boko Haram is certainly supported by forces outside Nigeria.”
Buhari also said that the National Working Committee of the APC, supported his emergence as the party’s flag-bearer.
“I said it much earlier at the National Executive Committee of our party that if my party recommended me to its executive, I would contest. I did that to save time and wide discussions among members of the party. So, those who felt very strongly about it left the party and the party nominated. Why? It is because I felt that the three fundamental objectives we campaigned in 2015 are still relevant,” he stated.
