United States President, Mr. Barrack Obama, yesterday urged both the Nigerian Government and the Boko Haram terrorist group to implement the ceasefire deal ceasefire deal announced last weekend by Defence Chief, Air Chief Marshall Alex Badeh.

Speaking through the deputy spokesperson of the State Department, Ms. Marie Harf, in Washington, DC, President Obama said that it would be a thing of joy for the American Government if the Nigerian Government and members of the Boko Haram sect maintain such a ceasefire.

Harf noted that the ceasefire, if properly implemented by all the parties involved, would herald the return of peace to the North-East of Nigeria. She advised that both parties should do everything to ensure that the ceasefire deal becomes a reality.

“We confirm reports that a ceasefire has been announced and it appears to have been put into place,” Ms. Harf said. “We would welcome that ceasefire and call on all parties both to implement and maintain such a ceasefire, and hope that such a ceasefire would herald the return of peace to the northeast. This is a region that has had far too little of that.

“It’s our understanding that negotiations about a deal to release the girls continue.”
