APC Welcomes AU’s Support To Battle Boko HaramFeatured, Latest News Friday, January 30th, 2015
Ayodele Afolabi, Abuja – The All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Organisation (APCPCO) has welcomed the decision of the African Union to commit troops in a multinational effort to fight the Boko Haram terror sect.
A statement from the Directorate of Media and Publicity of the APCPCO on Friday, said the decision of the AU to send troops to confront the Boko Haram onslaught will bring succour to many Nigerians who have hopelessly waited for government intervention.
The statement, signed by Mallam Garba Shehu reads:
“We welcome the decision of the African Union to endorse 7,500 West African troops to fight Boko Haram.
“For the victims of the Boko Haram onslaught and for Nigerians who are residents of areas most hit by Boko Haram attacks, this is the best news that has come for a long time.
“It is an action that has become necessary in the face of the seemingly show of ineptitude and a clear lack of proactive initiatives on the part of the PDP government, a government that prefers to muddle up and politicize issues of paramount importance than to squarely face them. such as the security of lives and property of those they swore to protect.
“We will only implore the AU troops to conduct themselves in accordance with the global rules of engagement, particularly as it relates to issues of fundamental human rights.”
