Read Tinubu's Christmas message to Buhari, Nigeria Army

27 December 2016, 12:33

Lagos - National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has expressed excitement at the success of the Nigerian military in the successful liberation of Sambisa forest from the once dreaded Boko Haram terrorists.

He also congratulated the citizens of the country, President Muhammadu Buhari and the Army over this success.

Sambisa forest is believed to be the last stronghold of the Boko Haram, but the Nigerian troops, under the Operation Lafiya Dole, took over the large area recently.

In a statement by his media office, the former Lagos governor also commended the troops for their bravery and resilience, asking them to now move to establish their hold on the area.

“I congratulate the nation, President Buhari and the army for crushing Boko Haram in their last stronghold of Sambisa Forest.

“I congratulate the troops of Operation Lafiya Dole for their bravery and resilience. They have given the nation a most wonderful Christmas gift.

“I know the insurgents were engaged in their last desperate acts and merely clutching to their last straw. Now they have been put down. Terror will have no place in our land. The end is here.

“I commend the troops. I thank them again for their courage and bravery. It’s time to finish the job and locate and liberate the remaining Chibok schoolgirls abducted from their school in 2014.

”As we sink ourselves in the Christmas celebration, let us remember to pray for the troops. Let us remember that for them, there was no Christmas.

“Let us also spare a thought for the Internally Displaced Persons. We must support them and give them hope,” Tinubu said.
