Group urges support for fight agaisnt insurgency


Concerned Professionals Congress (CPC), a Bauchi based group has assured that it would continue supporting the Nigerian military in the fight against insurgency and other security challenges in the country.
The group at a press briefing in Bauchi weekend, called on all well-meaning Nigerians to support the military in all their operations in parts of the country.
It noted with concern that the North East sub-region of the country has been witnessing degradation and human casualties over the years due to the activities of Boko Haram insurgents.
The press briefing jointly addressed by the group’s Chief Media Strategist, Mr. Emeka Nwapa and its Regional Rapporteur, Mallam Kasim Baba Al-Kasim also observed that the hardship being experienced by Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) is worrisome.
They however said that the situation is slightly improving due to the achievements being recorded by the Nigerian troops against the insurgents and the various other measures being put in place by President Muhammadu Buhari to ease the sufferings of the people affected.
“That has resulted in the steady decimation of the Boko Haram terrorists to the point that they now lack the capacity to either directly confront our troops or hold territories at will or carry out suicide bombings on soft targets”, group stated.
It added, “Particularly noteworthy in the course of the entire operations is the excellent command focus and the direction of no other great personality than our Commander-in-Chief‎, President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR who has left no one in doubt about his resolve and commitment to completely decimate the Boko Haram and restore peace, stability and normalcy in the Northeast”.
The Media Strategist and Regional Rapporteur also noted that with the liberation of territories held by the terrorists in the past, over 30,000 hostages have been rescued while over 10,000 Boko Haram members have surrendered to the Nigerian Army in recent times.
“We have visited some of the liberated territories and can confirm to you that this is the beginning of the end of this war that has desolated our lands‎”, the group chiefs said.
On the recent video released by the Boko Haram insurgents, they said that it is an attempt by the insurgents to distract attention and divert the pressure being mounted on them by the military operatives.
“The video has many contradictions. One, they said nobody knows the girls’ whereabouts. Then how did the people you said don’t know your Location are the same people you are accusing of bombarding the girls”, group queried.
“Second, looking at the clip, if indeed there was bombing by the concocted flying airplanes, how did the people who stage-managed the film escape to shoot the video”, it further asked.
“Besides, we have been made to understand that necessary precautionary measures guide and dictate the military operations in the North East. Precision airstrikes are the hallmark of the operations in line with global best practices and cutting edge technological military combat”, it concluded.
