Buhari receives captured Boko Haram flag from army | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

President Muhammadu Buhari last night charged the Nigerian Army to ensure that the country remained one and strong indivisible entity despite threats of secession in some quarters.

The President also received the captured flag of Boko Haram terrorists from the Sambisa forest from the Theatre Commander, Operation Lafiya Dole, Maj. -Gen. Lucky Irabor of the Nigerian Army‎. Buhari spoke at the 2016 Regimental Dinner organized by the Presidential Brigades of Guards in Abuja. The dinner was an annual event to mark the end of drilling year. It also provides the rare opportunity for officers to interact with their commanders.‎

Speaking at the event, President Buhari who went down memory lane, remembered his ordeal which he said would have cost his life. But despite the development, the president said he had a good time, serving the army for 25 years. He charged the military to ensure the unity of the country, saying it was sacrosanct.

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 political madness in the country where in the north east, the Niger Delta or in the East.

“There are 250 ethnic groups, so keeping Nigeria one is a task that must be done. So, even for personal reasons, you must make sure this country stays one and remain strong.”

  1. What a great news. We are proud of our military and they deserve to be better appreciated for this great feat. We hope they remain encouraged by the government to ensure this victory is sustained.

  2. Instead of receiving our alleged abducted Chibok-girls. What is the reference point here? OK, do we now keep it in our museum to remember Shekarau with? OK, let us roll out drums and begin to celebrate the capture of a mare cloth in the name of boko haram flag. Misplacement of priority.

  3. Shameless people, you are receiving flag but boko haram killed 15 people today.no responsible government would be busy receiving mere flag when their 15 members of their citizenry are slaughtered by the same people they are celebrating their victory
