The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described as morale boosting, the Thursday’s visit of President Goodluck Jonathan and the Service Chiefs to Maiduguri, Borno state saying it further demonstrates his commitment to the on-going war against terrorism in the country.
PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh in a statement on Friday said the President’s assurances to the military on their welfare and equipment has become a catalyst to the overall determination to win the war against insurgency.
The party also described the warm reception accorded the president in Borno, and the peace that pervaded the visit as “symbolic and clear indication of his acceptability by the people of the state”.
“In visiting the internally displaced persons in their camp, the President has gone further to show his abiding affinity with the people and commitment to bring succor and hope to the downtrodden”.
Commending President Jonathan for ensuring professionalism in the military, the PDP said that the armed forces have been rebuilt, reequipped and is being re-engineered to adequately confront the current terrorism challenges facing the country.
It therefore called on Nigerians to continue to support the President, as he remains focused in ensuring the unity and stability of the nation.
