President Muhammadu Buhari arrived at Maiduguri, the Borno state capital from Ethiopia, to condole the people over attack on commuters by insurgents in Auno, on Maiduguri Damaturu road, last Sunday.
He said more proactive and decisive measures would be taken by the Federal Government to end the atrocities of Boko Haram.
He argued that Boko Haram could not have come up to Maiduguri or environs without the local leadership knowing.
The President said his administration would do its utmost, and hoped that history would be kind to recall what was on the ground at the inception of the administration and what the situation would be like after its tenure.
President Muhammadu who was at the palace of the Shehu of Borno, Alhaji Abubakar Gabai, accompanied by the state Governor, Babagana Umara Zulum, sympathised with him and other victims of the attack, prayed for the repose of the soul of the victims.
Governor Zulum thanked the President for identifying with the state in its trying times.
He praised the efforts of the military so far, wondering why some people would be comparing the security situation now with what obtained before the Buhari administration came on board:
He urged the army to relocate its post from Auno to a further distance.
