Politics Nigeria is Not Fighting Any Civil War - Minister of Information

The supervising Minister of Defense and current Minister of Information, Labaran Maku, has clarified to those who say that the country is fighting a civil that the nation of NIgeria is indeed in a war, but one of terrorism. He made this known to the press during a press briefing on the Armed Forces Remembrance Day Celebration (AFRDC) in Abuja.

He said, “When the terrorists attacked the United States in September 11, 2001, it wasn’t declared a civil war; it was an attack on a peaceful country by a group of terrorists for mainly evil objectives. When Afghanistan was under attack of insurgents, it wasn't declared a civil war."

“We are facing a group of people whose objective is clearly terror, who attack citizens at random, including traditional rulers like the Emir of Kano, Shehu of Borno etc. These are terrorists. What I know is that we’re fighting a war in which a network of terrorists has chosen a part of our country to attack,” Maku said.

Although he expressed positivism and optimism during this press brief, the Minister also acknowledged that the nation currently faces “a very stubborn enemy”.
