Insecurity Remains A Big Challenge, We Are Determine To Secure The Country – Buhari

Insecurity Remains A Big Challenge, We Are Determine To Secure The Country – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday in Abuja said the insecurity crisis confronting the country remained a challenge for everyone, promising that the federal government was committed to confronting the crisis head on.

The president made this commitment in the conference centre of the Presidential Villa while reacting to the leadership award conferred on him by the governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) under the aegis of Progressive Governors’ Forum.

On the same day, the Chief of Defence Staff, General Abayomi Olonishakin admitted that there is lack of synergy in the joint operations conducted by the military to enable it achieve the desired potency to curb insecurity in the country.

President Buhari admitted that security remains the primary responsibility of the government and called on the citizenry to join the government in the efforts to combat insecurity ravaging the country.

The President, who also appealed to Nigerians to have faith in the country, thanked them for their patience and sacrifices so far, insisting that “Nigeria is currently on the path of economic growth”.

According to him, while every power within the reach of his administration would be deployed to sustain such growth, the government will also ensure that such growth was matched with job creation.

He said: “You are all quite aware that insecurity has remained a big challenge for us all. We are determined to face this challenge and secure the country more than ever before. While the protection of lives and property is a primary responsibility of government; it is also incumbent on the citizens to share in this responsibility, as security is a collective responsibility

“I call on all Nigerians to continue to have faith in our great country. I thank you for your continued patience and sacrifices towards moving the nation forward. Your Excellences, you will all agree with me that Nigeria is on a renewed growth trajectory. Accordingly, we will do everything within our powers to sustain the current economic recovery efforts.

“We will continue to reinforce our macroeconomic policies to achieve sustainable economic stability and growth. We will also continue to ensure the growth comes along with more jobs and a fair and just distribution of the national wealth. Your continued cooperation in this regard is very vital.”

The President pleaded with the governors to strongly support the anti-corruption war of his administration as well as the social investment programmes, notably the school feeding agenda of the federal government.

Buhari who expressed gratitude to the governors for the award, called for collaboration in the move to build a cohesive society where the country’s resources would be available for the use of all.

In his remarks, Chairman of the Progressive Governors’ Forum and Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha said the award was meant to express appreciation to the founding fathers of the APC and to also specially appreciate the president for “a job well done.”

Okorocha who noted that some of the governors would serve out their tenures on May 29, implored the President to carry along the founding fathers of the party, saying they are crucial to his stay in power.

Like the president, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo also bagged leadership award from the Forum.
