The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Senator George Akume, announced on Thursday that President Bola Tinubu’s administration had successfully defeated Boko Haram terrorists within its first year. Speaking at a book launch in Abuja celebrating Tinubu’s achievements, Akume praised the President for this significant accomplishment.

On the same day, the Defence Headquarters reported that 103 Boko Haram and ISWAP terrorists, along with their families, surrendered to the Nigerian military in Borno State between May 21 and May 23, 2024. Maj. Gen. Edward Buba, Director of Defence Media Operations, provided details during the DHQ’s bi-weekly briefing, noting that the surrendered group included 13 adult males, 29 adult females, and 61 children across various local government areas in Borno.

A statement from the media aide to the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Petroleum Resources, John Ameh, reiterated Akume’s commendation of Tinubu’s efforts against Boko Haram and highlighted the administration’s infrastructural achievements, including extensive road construction and the development of the Abuja Metro Rail.

Additionally, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Abdullahi Ganduje, lauded Tinubu’s leadership, particularly in reforming the local government system and challenging state governors accused of misappropriating local government funds. Recently, the Federal Government filed a lawsuit against the 36 state governors at the Supreme Court over these financial issues.

In celebration of President Tinubu’s first year in office, academics Bolu Folayan and Ajibolu Balofine released a book, “365 Days of Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s Presidency: Resetting the Strategic Foundation for a New Nigeria,” detailing his political journey and achievements. At the book launch, held at the Musa Yar’Adua Centre in Abuja, both Akume and Ganduje donated N10 million each, while businessman Prince Arthur Eze purchased ten copies for N20 million.

The event underscored the administration’s claims of progress in security and infrastructure, while also celebrating Tinubu’s strategic political successes.
