The President stated this in Abuja on Thursday, August 20, at an audience with Mousa Faki Mahamat, Chadian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Special Envoy of President Idris Deby of Chad.

He said with higher morale and improved logistics, equipment and training among troops in the frontline against Boko Haram, a rapid end to the insurgency could be expected.

The President, however, said Nigeria and Chad must be prepared to make more sacrifices to end the scourge of Boko Haram since they are at the "very heart of the insurgency".

"We will sustain our effort, and the insurgents will be defeated soon,’’ Buhari vowed.

The Special Envoy of the Chadian President said that President Deby appreciates the leadership being shown by Buhari in the war against terrorism.

"We also appreciate the diligence shown in appointing a Commander for the Multinational Joint Task Force, and Deby believes that the fight will end in a few months.

"Our people rely on us to end the insurgency, because economic development is being hampered.

"This fight has to come to an end. My coming here is to reaffirm our full commitment.

"Beyond the number of troops earlier announced, Chad is still ready to commit more soldiers.

"The enemy is weakened already. Let's stand firm, and neutralize them,’’ he said.
