In a statement issued in Abuja by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said that the widely published report that the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai, and the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, are personally coordinating the efforts of their troops in the theatre of war is the best news to have emerged from the frontline of the Boko Haram battle.
‘’There can be no bigger boost to the morale of the gallant troops who are combating Boko Haram than the sight of their Service Chiefs personally leading the charge from one village to another battling the insurgents or flying in a reconnaissance aircraft coordinating the various NAF platforms involved in the operation to provide close air support to ground forces.
‘’By their actions, Lt.-Gen. Buratai and Air Marshal Abubakar have shown that they care deeply for their troops and are determined to lead them to beat the deadline set by President Muhammadu Buhari to end the Boko Haram insurgency,’’ it said, adding that the Service Chiefs and the troops they are leading are a pride to the military and indeed to Nigeria.
