Also commended in the statement were the Service Chiefs for their leadership, who led by examples – which have seen them on the battle front many times.
The ruling political party, All Progressives Congress has praised the Nigerian military for current achievements in the combat against Boko Haram.
In a statement issued on Sunday, September 27, 2015 by the party's National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, saying the impressive performance since the stipulated time by President Muhammadu Buhari has shown that the insurgents can be defeated.
Lauding the continued push to dislodge the terrorists from their fortress in Sambisa Forest and elsewhere, the dismantling of their major fuel depot and other logistics, the political party also urged the troops to continue with their gallantry and patriotism until they have finally silenced the insurgents that have wrecked havoc on the country.
”The bigger picture of the impending Boko Haram defeat is the restoration of the much-vaunted capability of the Nigerian military and its globally-acclaimed professionalism that have vaulted Nigeria to the elite group of top global peace-keeping nations.
'The sharp turnaround in the war against Boko Haram, which had hitherto seen the terrorists gaining territories and striking at times and places of their own choosing, is also an indication of what a nation can achieve under a purposeful, committed, disciplined and sincere leadership,” the statement read.
Also commended in the statement were the Service Chiefs for their leadership, who led by examples – which have seen them on the battle front many times – and have made all the difference in motivating their troops.
