President Goodluck vowed yesterday that security forces in the country would adopt whatever means to totally end the sourge of terrorism and other gory activities of the Boko Haram sect.
The president, LEADERSHIP gathered, had on Tuesday morning shed tears when he got the news of the gruesome killings of about 43 students in Yobe State before issuing a statement in which he opened verbal fire on the insurgents.
He spoke in a live broadcast last night on national television and radio to mark the nations centenary celebrations, which kick off today at the International Conference Centre by 9am.
LEADERSHIP also learnt that some of the 28 heads of state and governments billed to attend the event arrived yesterday, amidst tight security in the Federal Capital Territory.
Jonathan said during the live broadcast that the centenary celebration is the best thing to happen to the country at this critical period in the history of the country.
Assuring that Boko Haram and their gory activities would be wiped out permanently, he said: We will continue to do everything possible to permanently eradicate the scourge of terrorism and insurgency from our country. We recognise that the root cause of militancy, terrorism and insurgency is not the strength of extremist ideas but corrupted values and ignorance.
My dear compatriots, as we celebrate our centenary, the security situation in some of our north-eastern states sadly remains a major concern for us. Just yesterday, young students, full of hopes and dreams for a great future, were callously murdered as they slept in their college dormitories in Yobe State. I am deeply saddened by their deaths and that of other Nigerians at the hands of terrorists. Our hearts go out to their parents and relatives, colleagues and school authorities.

If he’d allow for us to travel to Nigeria, bring our arms and fight, he might be able to bring some more rifles and expertise to the table.
Git ‘er done!
The guys who did “Whiter Shade of Pale”?
The guys who did Whiter Shade of Pale? I was about to say “Are they still together?” Some great songs - a bit heavy on the drugs though that must be why he hates them ............. OH that was Procol Harum! Far out!
The last I heard the death toll was 59.
**** Boko Haram!
Give the people guns.
Meanwhile, Zero, Plugs, Lurch and the rest of the cadre have only one concern in Africa — and it’s not Benghazi, Egypt, Sudan, or Iranian missiles in Eritria. It’s Uganda’s newest law. Thanks Viennacon.
