The All Progressives Congress, APC, has commended the service chiefs for showing leadership by example by personally taking charge of the ongoing fight against Boko Haram.
The APC called the development a breath of fresh air in the counter-insurgency battle.
In a statement issued in Abuja on Monday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said the widely published report that the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai, and the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, are personally coordinating the efforts of their troops in the theatre of war is the best news to have emerged from the frontline of the Boko Haram battle.
“There can be no bigger boost to the morale of the gallant troops who are combating Boko Haram than the sight of their service chiefs personally leading the charge from one village to another battling the insurgents or flying in a reconnaissance aircraft coordinating the various NAF platforms involved in the operation to provide close air support to ground forces.
“By their actions, Lt.-Gen. Buratai and Air Marshal Abubakar have shown that they care deeply for their troops and are determined to lead them to beat the deadline set by President Muhammadu Buhari to end the insurgency.’’
The APC added that the service chiefs and the troops they are leading are a pride to the military and indeed to Nigeria.
The party reiterated its earlier call on Nigerians to continue to support, in all ways possible, the nation’s gallant men and women who are making sacrifices including the supreme sacrifice, to keep the country safe.
Meanwhile, the party also commended governors, mostly in the North-West, who have decided to work together to address the security challenges in the area, especially the worsening cases of cattle rustling that cuts right into the artery of the economic wellbeing of the people of the region.
It said the efforts, which have led to the recovery of over 3,000 cows and the arrest of some bandits by the joint security task force set up by the states, must continue unhindered.
