The All Progressives Congress (APC) has continued to shower accolade on the Nigerian military for its continuous victory in the offensive against Boko Haram, saying that the positive results were indications that the insurgents will be defeated in due time and within the presidency?s deadline.

This latest position is contained in a statement issued in Lagos on Sunday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.

The party, in the statement said the continued push to dislodge the terrorists from their fortress in Sambisa Forest and elsewhere, the
dismantling of their major fuel depot and other logistics and the rescue of many innocent people from the clutches of the terrorists clearly indicate that the military has gained the upper hand against the insurgents.

The statement further affirmed that the mere fact that the terrorists are now surrendering in droves to the gallant troops of the Nigerian military is the clearest indication yet that the bandits are feeling the tremendous heat which has been turned on them.

The party urged the military to continue with their gallantry and patriotism until they subdue completely the terror group that has caused the nation so much pain.

The party emphasized on the need to step up intelligence gathering to stop the continuous suicide bombings.

It commended the Service Chiefs for their leadership, saying their personal examples ? which have seen them on the battle front many times ? have made all the difference in motivating their troops.

?The bigger picture of the impending Boko Haram defeat is the restoration of the much-vaunted capability of the
Nigerian military and its globally-acclaimed professionalism that have vaulted Nigeria to the elite group of top global peace-keeping nations.

?The sharp turnaround in the war against Boko Haram, which had hitherto seen the terrorists gaining territories and
striking at times and places of their own choosing, is also an indication of what a nation can achieve under a purposeful, committed, disciplined and sincere leadership,? it said.

The ruling party called on all Nigerians to continue to support and pray for the troops, who have continued to sacrifice all they could for the country.
