The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has commended President Muhammadu Buhari over Nigerian Army routing out of the Boko Haram sect from Sambisa forest.
The party said that the victory was due to efforts of both the present and past administrations.
The Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led faction of the PDP which stated this in a statement released by National Publicity Secretary of the party, Prince Dayo Adeyeye in Abuja on Tuesday, also applauded the Armed forces for successfully dispersing Boko Haram from Sambisa forest.
Part of the statement read, “We congratulate Nigerians for this important milestone in the long and bitter struggle against the forces of evil that have wreaked so much suffering and hardship on our people in the last few years.
“We also congratulate the President for his dogged pursuit of the war against insurgency, we are happy that he has built on the efforts of his predecessors. Whatever we are witnessing now is as a result of all the efforts and sacrifices of the past and present administrations.
“We are therefore very much delighted with the continuation of this great effort by the President. We salute the men and women of our beloved armed forces for their courage, determination and sacrifice which made this achievement possible.
While PDP called on the government and the military to continue the war against insurgency until the entire North east is rid completely of Boko Haram sect, it added, “Beyond Sambisa, all the other forests which criminals use as hideouts and bases must equally be cleared by the military.
“Forests such as Birnin Gwari, Zamfara, Southern Kaduna, Enugu and Benue have become killing fields,” PDP said.
