Jonathan meet Yoruba Elders, Promise to end Boko Haram In 2
The presidential candidate of the PDP, President
Goodluck Jonathan, said the Boko Haram
insurgency will change in two weeks’ time. He
made this statement at the meeting with
members of the Yoruba Council of Elders at the
State House, Marina, Lagos.
President Jonathan said the nation had acquired
equipment to battle Boko Haram and in two-
three weeks there wouldn’t be any threat to the
forthcoming general elections.
According to him, Nigeria could not be defined
by the Boko Haram insurgency, saying there
was terror all over the world.
“Sometimes, people define Nigeria by the Boko
Haram. Nigeria cannot be defined based on Boko
Haram alone. There is terror all over the world.
We’ve unfair share of the terror, but luckily, with
what is happening now, I tell people that in the
next two to three weeks, this story will change

withstand the excesses of Boko Haram.
“That is why these few days, you will see that

going on gradually. My belief is that in the next
three weeks or so, if we don’t completely take

Boko Haram to the extent that it’ll no longer be a
problem to the elections that will come up,” he
Moreover, the President took to his Facebook to
share some photos from the meeting and
express his gratitude.
“It was a great honour and pleasure to receive
members of the Yoruba Council of Elders who
visited me today at the State House, Marina,
Lagos. The wisdom from our elders is
invaluable. I thank the elders for their visit and
may God bless Nigeria. GEJ,” he wrote on his
