Minister of Finance Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala yesterday said the federal government has acquired new military hardware to confront insurgency in the North-East.

Speaking in an interview with journalists shortly after presenting relief materials to victims of Boko Haram attacks at the NYSC Orientation Camp in Girei, Adamawa State, the minister said new military equipment purchased by the government had arrived the country, expressing hope that the insurgency would soon be crushed as the money being invested in the fight is translating into victory.

She said the recent victory by Nigerian soldiers in Konduga testified to the ability of the Nigerian military, and Nigerians should rally round government and the military to achieve maximum results.

She added that the decision to procure modern equipment was borne out of the commitment to improve the capability of the military to deal with terrorism.

Some of the victims said their towns were still under the grip of Boko Haram fighters, and urged the federal government to act decisively.

Ahmadu Hassan said although they were fed at the camp, their major problem is how to go back home to and re-start their lives. Another victim, Alhaji Madu, urged the federal government to step up efforts in the war against Boko Haram as the country has the military might to win the war.

?For how long are we living here and when are we going back to our homes? We appreciate the assistance but the best thing to do is sending Boko Haram out of Gwoza, Madgali, Michika and other places they are holding?, he said.
