The All Progressives Congress (APC) condoles with the families of victims of the bomb blasts which occurred in a Mosque inside the University of Maiduguri on Monday, leading to the death of a Professor of Veterinary Medicine, Aliyu Usman Mani and four others.

The APC strongly condemn this cowardly act by Boko Haram, and 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.

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.
