Keyamo, who likewise fills in as the representative for the All Progressives Congress (APC) crusade committee, said the exercises of Boko Haram has been decreased definitely in the north-east.

He said; "I saw features last week saying that I said frailty has been brought to a record-breaking low by Buhari. I didn't say as much. It's as yet the time of wrong title. I expressed out loud whatever we met on the ground, Boko Haram in the north-east. I was explicit thus they cited me for the most part to say Boko Haram and weakness all through the entire country.

I just said Boko Haram in the north-east, it has not been completely cleared out, yet we have diminished this fundamentally. Every one of the streets that lead to Chibok and Damboa in Borno, they are currently acceptable."

Elsewhere in the world, Keyamo had said that the ceaseless Academic Staff Union of Universities, (ASUU), strike is a result of the 2009 understanding endorsed by the Peoples Democratic Party-drove government under President Umar Musa Yar'Adua.

He said the PDP government made guarantees which couldn't be satisfied which prompted the ongoing circumstance with ASUU.

The minister said; "The ASUU thing you are discussing. What is the issue of ASUU now? It's the 2009 understanding endorsed by PDP government. They consented to arrangements with ASUU they couldn't satisfy. We needed to acquire those arrangements and presently attempting to rethink those arrangements.

"Envision how untrustworthy an administration can be the point at which they went into concurrences with ASUU and marked conditions that they couldn't satisfy and for that reason ASUU is protesting so let us let Nigerians know that ASUU isn't protesting in light of the fact that APC consented to an arrangement with them. It was the PDP that consented to the arrangement.

"We are not shifting blames; we will handle the issue. Somewhere in the range of 1999 and 2015 when they gave over to the APC, ASUU was protesting multiple times. I have the measurements adding up to 900 days."
