Insecurity: Don’t Give Terrorists Breathing Space – Buhari Tells Troops

In the fight against insurgency and banditry, it has been reported that President Muhammadu Buhari has pledged to tackle insurgency and banditry in order to guarantee peace in the nation

Buhari reportedly stated this when he was addressing men and officers of the Armed Forces in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, during a visit.

According to him, “By pooling together the collective resources and comparative advantages of the Armed Forces and other security agencies, we hope the enemy will now feel the ferocity of our firepower and the weight of our resolve.”

The President also condoled with the families of the nation’s fallen heroes and pray for the souls of the departed, adding that, “I want to assure you that this administration will spare no effort or resources to ensure that the widows and children of our fallen heroes who paid the supreme price in defense of our beloved country are well cared for.”

Charging the security officers, Buhari said that, “We should not allow our adversaries the opportunity or breathing space to challenge or undermine our national interests and core values. The defense and security agencies should rest assured of the Federal Government’s unalloyed commitment to winning the battle against terror and criminality.”

He added that, “Concerted efforts are being made to fast-track reconstruction and development programmes in the affected communities in the North-East.”

He also stated that “Your collective efforts have resulted in the relative peace being enjoyed in the region today. Under my watch, the Armed Forces of Nigeria have been provided a firm strategy and clear sense of direction to safeguard the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the country.”
