Chief of Army Staff, Lt Gen TY Buratai, says the Nigerian Army cannot afford to lose the war against Boko Haram.

Buratai released a statement on Friday morning, stating that the challenge to the nation by the insurgents will not be taken, and the Army is ready to get the job done in the coming days and weeks.

He said: “The next few days will be crucial to Op Lafiya Dole. It is also crucial to our country Nigeria. Our sovereignty as a nation is threatened. The Nigerian Army and indeed the military as the symbol of our nationhood is being challenged.

Our ability to stand and defeat the Boko Haram terrorists in the next few weeks will determine the future of our country. We cannot afford to lose the fight.”

“We are better trained and better equipped. The whole nation is behind us. Mr President is with us.
Let us remain steadfast in this noble cause. Be courageous. We must degrade and defeat the terrorists. This job must be done. We must make our country men and women proud.”
