The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has flayed Monday’s bomb blasts which occurred in a Mosque inside the University of Maiduguri in Borno State.
The blast claimed the lives of scores of students of the institution as well as that of a leading Professor of Veterinary Medicine, Aliyu Usman Mani.
In a statement issued by the spokesman of the party, Alhaji Bolaji Abdullahi on Tuesday, the [arty described the incidence as a cowardly act by members of the dreaded sect, Boko Haram.
“We view this latest act of terror as another confirmation of the group’s desperation to remain in the national consciousness, having lost its former stronghold to the Nigerian Army.
“Even as we mourn with fellow citizens who have fallen victims to the terrorists, we are consoled by the knowledge that Boko Haram’s days are numbered and these indeed are its dying days.”
On the efforts being made by members of the armed forces, the party wrote that “We once again salute our gallant men in uniform for their heroic efforts and their invaluable sacrifice to our nation.
“We commend President Muhammadu Buhari for keeping the promise that our Party made to Nigerians that we would end the insurgency and restore peace to the Northeast of Nigeria.
The Party assure Nigerians that with their support and prayer, even these isolated attacks by Boko Haram insurgents will soon be a thing of the past.
