Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has again promised to deal with criminal elements threatening the peace of the country.
Represented by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Boss Mustapha at the first Progressives Youths Conference on Monday in Abuja, the president stressed that any group causing unrest in the country will be brought to book.
Buhari assured that no effort will be spared in tackling every form of insecurity in Nigeria.
He said: “So far, all the policy initiatives, projects and even appointments by this administration have been guided by equity and inclusiveness. There is actually no part of the country that has not been impacted positively in the areas of infrastructure, agriculture and economic support initiative based on peculiarities of the regions.
“As you are all aware, we are currently dealing with some internal security challenges and I would like to reassure you that as the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, no effort will be spared in tackling them.
“As I have repeatedly said in recent weeks, every criminal element that has taken up arms against the peace of the country and its citizens will be brought to book accordingly.”
The President also urged APC youths to forge a better future for the party and the country.
Meanwhile, Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State has lamented the rising insecurity in the country and the effect it would have on upcoming elections.
He made this known at a colloquium held in commemoration of this year’s June 12 celebration with the theme: “June12: Securing the Freedom of Democracy”.
Fayemi stated that the increasing level of security challenges facing the country posed a great threat to the conduct of the elections.
