The Federal Government shed more light on the controversy surrounding the alleged death of Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau on Wednesday saying there was no reason for there to be little confidence about the pronouncement.
Briefing newsmen at State House abuja after the weekly Federal Executive Council meeting Information Minister Labaran Maku said since the declaration of the State of Emergency in three states of the North East a lot of progress had been made in returning the country to normalcy.
The Federal Government leaving pronouncements of the progress achieved during the State of Emergency to the Military has been deliberate because it seeks to divorce the operations from antics and pronouncements of politicians.
But the Information Minister is making an exception in this case because of the inconclusive nature of the announcement of Abubakar Shekau's alleged death.
There is no reason to doubt the Military, he says.
