President Muhammadu Buhari, Friday, gave a timeline to conclude the war against Boko Haram and bandits.

While assuring that the counter-insurgency war would be concluded this year, the President called for prayers for the country’s Armed Forces to enable them end what they are doing.

Buhari, who spoke during the Juma’at Prayer for this year’s Armed Forces Remembrance Day celebration at the National Mosque in Abuja, also assured that “this is a year of action and we will finish what we are doing.”

According to Buhari, who was represented by the Minister of Defence, Maj-Gen. Bashir Magashi (rtd): “What is happening in this country will soon be over. This year, we will finish what we are doing, pray for us that we succeed.”

He said the country would continue to remember the heroic exploits of members of the Armed Forces and continue to pray for the repose of the souls of those that paid the supreme price defending Nigeria.

The President also assured that the welfare and comfort of the families of the fallen heroes, as well as those who are still alive, would continue to get the priority of the government.

The Chief Imam of the National Mosque, Dr. Mohammed Kabiru Adams, prayed for the repose of the souls of the fallen heroes and an end to insurgency, banditry and other social vices plaguing the country.
