President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that Niger Delta militants were unleashed on his administration.
The president made the disclosure on Wednesday, February 13, while speaking at a mega rally of the All Progressives Congress (APC) which took place at the Eagle Square, Abuja, The Cable reports.
Legit.ng gathers that Buhari opened up about the challenges encountered by his government when he assumed office and stated that the administration was able to surmount the challenges through dedication and hard work.
He said: “When we came in, Boko Haram was controlling 17 local government areas and even operating here in Abuja; but today, that is no longer happening.
“What Boko Haram is doing now is to indoctrinate some young people. Our government faced so many challenges. Militants were unleashed on my administration but we have been able to make progress.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the Peace Ambassadors of Niger Delta (PAND), a group of former Niger Delta agitators, on Wednesday endorsed President Muhammadu Buhari as its preferred candidate for the February 16 presidential election.

Victor said the aim of the workshop was to enlighten Niger Delta residents on the need to relate with the government to achieve success and peaceful elections in the region.
