If not for President Jonathan's tactics, Boko Haram would have taken over half of Nigeria - PDP | Do you agree?

The Peoples Democratic Party on Monday boasted that if not for President Goodluck Jonathan's tactics, Boko Haram would have taken over about half of Nigeria.

The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr. Olisa Metuh, said this at a press briefing in Abuja.

"The problem that we have in the North-East to deal with is insurgency; it is not the making of this government. This government has tried as much as possible to contain it.

"I must proclaim, every now and then, Nigerians encourage us by saying that if not for the character, candour and the personality of the President, these insurgents would have overrun more than half of Nigeria.

"We would have been under occupation of terrorists if not for the determination, the style and the character and personality of the president."

Explaining how the President had been working to stop Boko Haram, he said the government had been able to secure a ceasefire, dialogue with members of the sect and the use of other methods.

"He has been able to offer a ceasefire, dialogue and other things to engage them. He has been trying all sorts of methods and engaging them in serious warfare and Nigerians have noted that if not for his character, Boko Haram would have overrun half of Nigeria," he added.
