The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Monday expressed optimism that President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration would crush the bandits and Boko Haram insurgents before the end of his tenure in 2023.

The National Secretary of the APC Caretaker and Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, John Akpanudoedehe, stated this in a statement in Abuja.

He was reacting to the recent killings of 200 people by bandits in 10 communities in Zamfara State.

The statement read: “The government has been steadfast in retooling the Armed Forces, recruitment of personnel, and intensified training to enhance their operational capacity in safeguarding public safety and the territorial integrity of the country.

“We assure Nigerians that banditry and insurgency will be crushed. Indeed, the recent designation of these satanic, evil and criminal elements as terrorist groups will further buoy our security services to deal with them as such and ultimately contain their nefarious activities in the country.’’
