The All Progressives Congress, APC, has again hailed the Nigerian military for its string of successes in the battle against Boko Haram.
The Party, said the impressive performance had shown that the terror group could indeed be defeated within the time stipulated by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Its National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, said the continued push to dislodge the terrorists from their fortress in Sambisa Forest and elsewhere, the dismantling of their major fuel depot and the rescue of many innocent people were clear indications the military gained the upper hand against Boko Haram.
Mohammed said the mere fact that the terrorists were now surrendering in droves to the gallant troops of the Nigerian military was the clearest indication yet that the bandits were feeling the tremendous heat which has been turned on them.
He urged the troops to continue with their gallantry and patriotism until they had finally silenced the terror group that had caused the nation so much pain, stressing the need to step up intelligence gathering to stop the lone wolf suicide bombers.
