A group, One Nigeria Project (ONP), has called on Nigerians to support the Nigerian Armed Forces (AFN) to tackle all of the country’s security challenges.
ONP, while praising the military as a stabilizing factor in the unity of the country, is described as an unfriendly attempt by certain individuals to continue to slander the military in its ongoing operations against all criminal elements across the country.
The group, in a statement signed by Convener Abel Mukoro and Co-Covener Bukar Garba on Wednesday, commended AFN staff for their resilience in combat, adding that their investigation revealed that the renewed strength and synergy between the services has resulted in the Mass surrender of several terrorists.
ONP called on Nigerians to pray for peace in the country, victory and the safety of military personnel in all operational areas.
The statement reads: “We declare that it is ruthless for some of our compatriots to notice just one side of our military without acknowledging its successes.
“We must continue to support our armed forces. We shouldn’t weaken their morale. You have shown a strong determination to stabilize and strengthen the unity of the country.
“We must also commend the synergy created by the Chief of Defense Staff, General LEO Irabor. Undoubtedly, they are starting to get positive results.
“We are witnessing the massive decimation of the terrorists, which recently led to the surrender of more than 5,000 of them.
“Now is the time to support our troops. Now is the time to maintain the unity that the AFN is fighting for!”
