FG determined to tackle insecurity—Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari has said that the government is determined to tackle the security challenges confronting the country.
He also urged Nigerians to play their part in security issues.
He spoke yesterday at a function put together by All Progressive Congress (APC) governors, where they honoured the President for stirring the party and ensuring that it maintained its hold on power at the centre in the last general election.
Speaking on the security challenges in the country on the occasion, Buhari 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 sacrifice towards moving the nation forward.”
On the economy, Buhari said in the face of the challenges that have arisen from past economic and political mismanagement, the party must feel justifiably proud to have contributed actively in getting Nigeria back on track in the last four years, in human and infrastructure development.
He said: “We remain committed to improving the welfare of the Nigerian people.
