Action Congress Party stalwart Ayo Akande in Lagos State has said the All Progressive Congress will eradicate the Boko Haram menace within a month in power.
He said the inception of the presidency of Dr. Goodluck Jonathan set the stage for the escalation of terrorism by the shady group.
Akande, who spoke in a statement on Wednesday in Lagos, believed in APC’s capability to dealing with myriad of problems bedeviling the country.
He also predicted the likelihood of victory as the newly formed party sets to take on the Peoples Democratic Party in 2015.
Akande said, “I am optimistic within one month of an APC government in Aso Rock, Boko Haram restiveness will disappear. This is because the grievances of injustice, corruption, insensitivity, hopelessness and unemployment adduced by the sect would have been resolved.”
On the issue that most Nigerians deemed APC not strong enough to wrest power from the PDP, Akande said, “The success of the merger is 80 per cent. You don’t expect any arrangement especially politics to be absolute. The hope is high, Nigerian people are fed up with the Peoples Democratic Party government.”
