President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday promised to use every means at the disposal of the Federal Government of Nigeria to persuade terror group, Boko Haram to embrace peace.
The president disclosed this when some residents of Abuja, including Senate President Bukola Saraki, paid him a courtesy visit in his official residence at the Presidential Villa.
He said: “On Boko Haram, this government is determined to make sure that we persuade them if they can be persuaded, we will use government institutions to persuade them to allow peace to reign.”
President Buhari however did not state the means of persuasion that will be deployed.
Also, the president appealed to Nigerians to come together to pull the nation out of its seemingly intractable problems.
