Nigeria’s National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo
Dasuki has said that all known Boko Haram camps in
the country will be “taken out” in six weeks.
Dasuki stated this to news agency Agence France
Presse (AFP) on Monday, February 9.
“All known Boko Haram camps will be taken out. They
won’t be there. They will be dismantled,” Dasuki said.
The NSA was responding to a question on how much
progress could be made against the terrorists before
the new date for Nigeria’s recently postponed
elections » .
Dasuki had first called for a poll shift » to enable
citizens collect their Permanent Voters Cards (PVC)
before later informing the Independent National
Electoral Commission (INEC) that security couldn’t be
provided for the polls if they were held in February.
This led the Chairman of INEC, Attahiru Jega to
announce a six-week postponement » on Saturday,
Dasuki however insisted that the elections would not
be postponed any further.
The poll shift has been condemned by the United
States » and many Nigerians while the opposition
party, All Progressives Congress (APC) described it as
a provocative » move.
