'We’ll Do Everything To End Insecurity' – President Buhari
President Buhari has expressed concern that insecurity had inhibited the government’s ability to build infrastructure, provide the much needed social services to the people, and attract investments that drive innovation, create industries, and provide jobs and create wealth.
President Muhammadu Buhari has vowed to use everything within his powers to fight and end insecurity in the country and bring perpetrators of criminal activities to book.
He said this on Tuesday, July 13, 2021, at the State House Conference Centre during a dinner with members of the National Assembly.
He declared that ‘‘insecurity, manifesting as insurgencies, banditry, kidnapping and urban crime of all sorts is the single most difficult challenge we face today.’’
He expressed concern that insecurity had inhibited government’s ability to build infrastructure, provide the much needed social services to the people, and attract investments that drive innovation, create industries, and provide jobs and create wealth.
''Some of the people who perpetuate these various manifestations of insecurity do so for profit, others, in the name of discredited ideologies.
‘‘Whatever their motivations may be, their actions are an existential threat to our country.
‘‘In these circumstances, we must do everything within our power, without consideration of distractions, to put an end to their activities and bring them to book.
'‘We cannot allow ourselves to be distracted from this objective or waver in our commitment, and I am confident that together we will triumph in our present efforts,’’ he said.
