Governor Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom State has assured Nigerians and the international community that the current insecurity in the country, created by the activities of the Islamist sect, Boko Haram, will soon fizzle out since the current administration led by President Goodluck Jonathan had taken the right measures to address the problem.
Akpabio gave the assurance while speaking with journalists, Tuesday night, at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, on his arrival from investments trip to the United States of America.
He said the willingness of the government to dialogue with Boko Haram was a step in right direction towards dousing tension in the country. He added that notwithstanding the insecurity, the international community was very eager to invest in Nigeria because they have confidence in the ability of President Jonathan to turn around the economy.
On the purported call by Boko Haram for Islamisation of Nigeria and insistence on its earlier call on President Jonathan to convert to Islam or resign from office, he said: “Who are the members of the Boko Haram?
“When we see Boko Haram members, we will discuss with them because as far as I am concerned, we still have a lot of people masquerading as Boko Haram to send mischievous text messages, information, among others.”
