ABUJA, Dec. 30 (Xinhua)

Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan on Sunday reassured the West African nation of his administration’s preparedness to end the menace of Boko Haram.

The Nigerian leader told a church
gathering in the capital Abuja that his
administration was working assiduously
to address the security challenges in the
country. He told his audience that adequate measures had been put in place to contain the menace of the Boko Haram militant group.

While assuring the congregation that the activities of Boko Haram will not push the nation backward, the president said the security plans put in place were already yielding positive results.According to him, the strategic security
arrangement helped abort the plans by
the group to attack on Christmas Day.

“The Boko Haram planned to carry out a
lot of attacks on Christmas Day, but we
suppressed their plans during the
Christmas, because the extent of their
plans was not executed because of the
strategies put in place by the security agencies to abort their plans,” he added. “We still recorded some incidents, but
the extent of attacks which they planned
was not allowed to be executed,” the
president said.

Waves of attacks believed to be
perpetrated by the Boko Haram sect have been reported in the northern and central parts of Nigeria,killing thousands of people since its emergence in 2009.
