The federal government has insisted that it is winning the war against Boko Haram despite all challenges and campaign of calumny by the fifth columnists. It stressed that security agencies were battle-ready to squarely confront the enemy of State.

Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Defence, Aliyu Ismaila expressed this confidence while interacting with newsmen on the sideline of the ongoing 70th United Nations General Assembly, UNGA, holding in New York.

While expressing optimism that terrorists will be exterminated from Nigeria within the deadline given to the military by President Muhammadu Buhari, Ismaila said, ?We have put machinery in place to meet the presidential deadline handed over to us and we are sure that the nation?s security agencies are up to the task?.

Speaking on Buhari?s participation in the UNGA, Ismaila said he is convinced that the President?s attendance at the meeting would attract benefits to Nigeria.

?The President is attending the UN General Assembly for the first time and he has created a great impact on issues concerning security, trade and investment as well as climate change. Nigeria is doing very well and we are very proud that we have a President who is very focused and who world leaders have tremendous confidence in,? he stated.

Ismaila went on to fault the criticisms that have trailed Buhari?s absence at a meeting on Friday on the Boko Haram sect and internally displaced persons, clarifying that the meeting was not in the President?s schedule.

He said if the country was aware of the parley, there was no way the President or his officials would not have attended, especially with the importance attached to the terrorism war.

The permanent secretary stated: ?It is most unfortunate that people just say whatever they feel like saying. Before we left Nigeria, there were meetings that were penciled down for the President to attend. On arrival here, these meetings were reviewed and some others were added.

?To the best of my knowledge, that meeting on Boko Haram was never included in the agenda. Nigeria is one country that is addressing this issue of Boko Haram. It is very important to the country and if it was included in the agenda, the President or his officials would have attended.?
