President Muhammadu Buhari, has pledged to aggressively address Nigeria’s security challenges, henceforth, hoping that things will not be the same in 2021 and beyond,
The President made this position known while reacting to the release of the abducted Students of Government Science Secondary School, in Kankara, Katsina State, at his country home, Daura, before returning back to Abuja, from his short holiday.
President Buhari, who pledged never to betray the trust reposed in him by Nigerians, said that he is very worried about the security situation in some parts of the country.
His words: ”It is our responsibility to secure this country, for all the citizens to do their businesses without any problem. We have not achieved that yet, but we will keep on trying.
”I will continue to be loyal to this country. I have asked for this mandate; I got it, I must not advance any excuse for failing to perform.
”On the issue of insecurity, I am extremely worried about it, and I hope next year it will be different. Those among the Law Enforcement Agencies that would remain in charge, would be extremely busy.”
He also reiterated the commitment of his administration to continue to provide all the needed support to the Security Agencies, to enable them discharge their responsibilities diligently.
The President, who stated that the efforts of the Security Agencies are not good enough, charged them to redouble their efforts in protecting the lives and property of the citizens.
He added: ”We have a lot of works ahead of us, and some of these things we may not say, because I do not want to compromise the security and efforts being put by the Law Enforcement Agencies.
”But really we are accurately aware of our responsibilities. Our responsibility is to secure the country; so we have a lot of works to do.
”Armed Forces know their job. I meet them, we have Security meetings from time to time, they must be very clear of my instructions, and their effort is not good enough for me.
”It is our responsibility to secure this country for all the citizens to do their businesses, without any problem.
”We have not achieved that yet, but, we will keep on trying.”
