Also, the president expressed readiness to release Boko Haram members in various prisons across the country in exchange for the over 200 schoolgirls kidnapped by the sect two years ago.
The president spoke yesterday on the sidelines at the sixth Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD VI) in Nairobi, Kenya.
He said; “As a government, we know our responsibility, which is to secure the environment. It is clear to us that lenders won’t fund projects in insecure environments. “We realise that we have to secure the country before we can efficiently manage it,” the president said.
