Nigeria’s President, General Muhammadu Buhari, has stated that his administration is prepared to do everything in its power to remove insecurity in the country and bring criminals to justice.
“Insecurity manifesting as insurgencies, banditry, abduction, and urban crime of all kinds is the single most difficult task we face today,” President Buhari remarked at a luncheon with members of the National Assembly hosted at the State House Conference Centre in Abuja on Tuesday.
The President while addressing the lawmakers, was concerned that insecurity has hampered the government’s capacity to build infrastructure, offer much-needed social services, and attract investment that would drive innovation, create productive and viable industries, create jobs, and generate wealth.
According to the report gathered, Buhari said, “Some people profit off these diverse manifestations of insecurity, while others do so in the name of debunked ideas. Whatever their reason, their acts pose a grave threat to our country’s survival.”
“In these circumstances, we must do all possible, regardless of distractions, to put a stop to their operations and bring them to justice. We must not be sidetracked from our goal or waver in our dedication, and I am convinced that by working together, we will succeed in our current endeavors.” Buhari added.
