Foreign Elements Used Boko Haram To Destroy Nigeria...Buhari

President  Muhammadu Buhari has alleged that some foreign elements were part of the conspiracy that used Boko Haram to destroy the country.

The President added that it was unfortunate that Boko Haram had stopped the country from tapping its resources in the Lake Chad Basin.

He said, “We have shown Nigerians and the rest of the world that we have so many natural resources. Boko Haram insurgents took over the control of 17 local governments in Borno State. Out of the 27 LGs in the state, 13 were under Boko Haram and only four were with the government.

“Half of Yobe State was in the hands of Boko Haram. I suspect there is an international group that wants to destroy Nigeria, if not how can Western education be Haram” he queried.

“I was a Minister of Petroleum when I was there for four years. Go to Chad Basin and see what we established there, and then you go to Sokoto Basin. So, we have to pray hard and also thank God.

“We fight for our land from the groups that are trying to destroy Nigeria, but we are very lucky.  I am very happy that Nigerians showed me support, they identified with me and I identified with them also.”
