Senator Ali Ndume

Senator Mohammed Ndume on Tuesday expressed optimism that the military will liberate Gwoza from Boko Haram insurgents very soon.

Mr. Ndume (APC-Borno South) expressed this optimism during a chat with journalists in Maiduguri.

He said the military had demonstrated high sense of patriotism in its recent anti-terrorism war.

“In the last five weeks, the military had performed creditably by reclaiming 22 communities from the insurgents.

“I believe that the remaining communities will be reclaimed in the shortest possible time.

“Gwoza, which is the strong hold of the insurgents, will be reclaimed any moment from now, going by recent developments.

“I think that the soldiers deserve commendation for what they are doing”, Mr. Ndume said.

He also commended the Independent National Electoral Commission for its efforts towards conducting free and fair elections.

“INEC is ready to conduct free and fair elections. About 80 per cent of voters have collected their Permanent Voter Cards in readiness for the polls”, he added.

Mr. Ndume urged Nigerians to be law abiding during and after the polls. (NAN)
