“We are going to tackle [Boko Haram] head on… Nigerians will not regret that they have entrusted responsibility to us,” Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari pledged when he took office in May.
Since then, however, the armed group has continued to attack villages in Nigeria, Cameroon and Chad, prompting the US to announce this week it will deploy troops to Cameroon to aid in the fight.
With a December deadline, set by Buhari, to stamp out the armed group, can the new leader deliver?
In this week’s Headliner, Mehdi Hasan speaks to the Nigerian president about his pledge to defeat Boko Haram and his efforts to bring back the kidnapped Chibok girls.
