3/20/2015 Nigeria (BBC) - President Jonathan on Boko Haram:
"I'm very hopeful that it will not take us more than a month to recover the old territories that hitherto have been in [Boko Haram's] hands."
"We never expected that [Boko Haram] will build up that kind of capacity. We under-rated their external influence. Since after the civil war we've not fought any war, we don't manufacture weapons, so we had to look for help to re-equip our army and the air force."
On the 219 schoolgirls abducted from Chibok:
"We have not seen dead girls, that is the good news. I believe they are still alive, I believe we will get them."
On the election:
"I will surely win it… My party is still the strongest party."
On violence during his presidency:
"Whatever goes wrong, I accept. Whatever goes right, I take the glory."
"Whenever I hear that somebody dies in Nigeria... I feel pain, because they are all Nigerians."
