President Muhammadu Buhari

President Muhamnadu Buhari has assured the families of the gallant Military, Police, and other security agents who lost their lives in the cause of protecting the territorial integrity of the Nation against both internal and external aggressors that their sacrifices would not be in vain.

In a statement to the Nation to mark the beginning of the year, 2022, Buhari, said, ” We equally remember and commiserate with Nigerians who have lost loved ones as a result of insecurity in different parts of the country. Every life matters and every single death caused by any form of insecurity is a matter of personal concern to me both as a citizen and as the President of this great country.

“We remain fully committed to upholding the constitutional provisions that protect all Nigerians from any form of internal and external aggression”.

On the economy, President Buhari said, ” the persistent insecurity in certain parts of the country may have threatened to unravel the incremental gains achieved in the real sectors of the economy and in the administration’s overall objective to position the nation on the irreversible trajectory of sustainable growth and progress, but I assure you that we will remain resolute in our commitments and shall continue to press ahead with our programmes and plans”.

He said the path to nationhood was often fraught with unpredictable difficulties and challenges, adding that most tried and tested nations have often prevailed through dogged determination, resilience, and concerted commitment to unity.

The President said, “There is no doubt that the issue of Security remains at the front burner of priority areas that this Administration has given utmost attention to. As a follow up to our promise to re-energize and reorganize the security apparatus and personnel of the armed forces and the police, it is on record that this Administration has invested heavily in re-equipping our military in line with upgrading the platforms and firepower required to tackle the current challenges being faced in the country.

“The net results of these efforts have been the number of insurgents and bandits who have willingly surrendered to our Security Forces and continue to do so through various channels and the Safe Corridor created for that purpose”.
