House Of Reps Commends Goodluck On Renewed Success Against Boko Haram

The House of Representatives, on Tuesday, commended President Goodluck Jonathan and the military for recapturing some towns that had fallen under the control of the Boko Haram sect in some parts of the North.

The House resolution was sequel to a motion of urgent national importance moved by Honourable Muhammad Monguno, who informed the House that “almost all the local government taken by Boko Haram have now been liberated, so the Armed Forces require some encouragement from us in the parliament.”

He added that before now, the Boko Haram sect had nearly overtaken Borno State, stressing that “today, the tide is turning against the insurgents as a result of the gallantry of the soldiers.”

Contributing to the motion,  Deputy House Leader, Honourable Leo Ogor, noted that the new development “is a sign that the military is working” adding that “it is, therefore, important to appreciate what they are doing. We also need to commend other nations —Chad, Cameroon and Niger for assisting us in fighting this battle.

Speaking further, he said: “We need, also, to commend the Commander-in-Chief for his bold steps in assuring that there will be security in the beleaguered area within six weeks.”

When the motion was put to vote by the Deputy Speaker, Honourable Emeka Ihedioha, it was unanimously supported by members.
