This has attracted both local and international accolades to Buhari with U.S President, Barack Obama commending his efforts.
In the same vein, the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. General Tukur Burutai extolled President Muhammad Buhari’s leadership capability recently according to the DailyTrust. He stated that a single presidential directive from him led to unprecedented victory against Boko Haram.

Presenting a speech at a conference on Peace Building and Reconstruction in Lake Chad Basin held in Yola, Burutai said the directive to relocate the Army Command and Control Centre ‎to Maiduguri was key to military success in North East.

He noted that strategic decisions taken by the President provided a new focus and energy to Nigerian troops ‎fighting Boko Haram.

“I received a Presidential directive to move the Army Command and Control Centre to Maiduguri and to subsequently defeat Boko Haram by December last year (2015). This strategic directive provided the platform upon which we undertook the task which has largely been achieved”, he stated.

The Army Chief noted that the military was charged with the task of defeating the militants, regaining lost territory and rescuing all abducted persons including Chibok girls

He said the military would not relent until all liberated towns and villages become safe and conducive for economic and social activities.
