President Muhamma­du Buhari yesterday described as shame­ful for Nigeria whose military might helped end the wars in Burma, Zaire , Liberia, Sierra Leone and Sudan, now rely on its neigh­bours to end the insurgency in the North-easten part of the country.

This is even as the Presi­dent said he was compiling the shopping list demanded by G7 world leaders who met in Ger­many recently.

“It is paradoxical what the Nigerian military has achieved from Burma to Zaire to Liberia to Sierria Leone to Sudan. But Nigeria is now to be helped by Niger, Chad, and Cameroon. How are the mighty fallen.?

“We will do our best to re­store the respectability of our country and its institutions. And with you, your steadfast­ness and your seriousness, we will do what we can do, we will accommodate all your obser­vations including the negative ones about the performance of the government and it’s agen­cies”.

He also described as not good enough and unfortunate that the Jonathan administra­tion delayed in taking action to rescue the over 200 sec­ondary schoolgirls abducted from Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State on April 14, last year.

He noted that security agen­cies and Federal Government’s initial conflicting report pre­sented the country in a very bad light both nationally and internationally.

The President said this when he met with members of the #BringBackOurGirls’ group, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, led by Mrs Oby Ezekwesili and Maryam Uwais, yesterday.

The group alleged that the Jonathan administration never believed the students were abducted until weeks later when the Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau, started post­ing their pictures on the social media, before the administra­tion was spurred into action.

While reiterating that his government was committed to mobilise and deal with the terrorism, Buhari assured the Chibok community which presented a five points demand which include rehabilitation of infrastructure and welfare for displaced persons, that it was their right and his government will do everything to meet them.

Buhari also told the group that he was still compiling the shopping list as demanded by the G7 world leaders who met in Germany last month.

He said, “At the G7, the leadership asked us for our shopping list which I’m still compiling, military has sub­mitted theirs and I’m wait­ing for the governments of the frontline states to submit theirs local government by local government in terms of infrastructure, schools, health care, roads, markets, churhes, mosques and so on.”
