Senate praises army for liberating North East

10 March 2015, 18:17

Abuja - The Senate has commended the Nigeria Armed Forces on their successful operations against terrorists in the North Eastern parts of the country.

The commendation came following an order raised by Senator Maina Ma’aji Lawal.

He said the Military had successfully liberated Mugunu, Baga and Damasak among other communities in the North East.

“The effort is ongoing and it is important that it should be appreciated,” Lawal said.

He was hopeful of more success so that other communities still under the control of the terrorists would be liberated.

In his contribution, Senator Bukar Aba Ibrahim supported the submission of Lawal.

He also confirmed that the military had successfully dislodged members of the terrorists from several communities in the North East.

Senator Mohammed Ali Ndume also joined the House in appreciating the military for their efforts to restore peace in the area.

“We have been crying out together and we have given the Nigeria military the support they needed. It also right for us to commend them for a good work done,” Ndume said.

In his remark, the Senate President, David Mark, praised neighbouring countries for their efforts in helping end the terror.

"We should also commend our neighbouring countries Chad, Niger and Cameroon for their contribution to the fight against terrorists in the region” Mark said.

The Senate President also appreciated the Economic Community of West African States for their support.

He directed the Senate Committee on Defense and Army to convey the Senate's appreciation to the military.
