PDP commends Buhari's war against terror

05 October 2015, 14:01

Abuja - The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has reaffirmed its support to initiatives by the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari to end the Boko Haram crisis.

The support came in a condemnation of the recent terror attacks in Kuje and Nyanya , satellite towns of Abuja.

“The PDP deeply grieves for the continued acts of terrorism, especially in the northern parts of the country, where insurgents are still slaughtering innocent Nigerians almost by the day. Indeed, this is not the way to go.

We can no longer afford to continue to have our people cut down and slaughtered,” said PDP spokesperson Olisa Metuh.

He said all Nigerians must therefore close ranks and present a common front in support of our government and security forces in the fight against terrorism in our country.

“It is on this note that we restate our support for each and every policy undertaken by the Government of President Muhammadu Buhari aimed at ending insurgency and checking criminal activities in our nation,” the party said.

The party said is particularly pained that the attacks came just 24 hours after the nation celebrated its 55th independence anniversary, when the citizens and their leaders renewed their faith in the oneness and progress of the nation.

PDP, a ruling party until elections held earlier this year, had during its time at the helm come under attack for its handling of the Boko Haram crisis.

Morale among the armed forces fighting the insurgents had reached an all-time low.

The troops have in recent years made strides against the terrorists.
