President Muhammadu Buhari has reassured that his administration will not rest until the current security challenges in the country are addressed.
Buhari, represented by the Minister of Science and Technology, Dr Ogbonaya Onu, said this at the public presentation of a book- “Standing Strong”, written by former Senate President, Ken Nnamani in Abuja on Thursday, October 21.
“We are consequently reviewing our strategies to continuously degrade the capabilities of all criminal elements in the country,” he said.
He said that the government was creating strategic cooperation between the military and paramilitary formations to work together to fight crimes and criminal activities in the country.
Buhari said that adequate resources had been deployed to strengthen the capabilities of the military for enhanced operations.
He commended the Nigerian armed forces and other security agencies for their efforts in fighting crime and criminality in the country.
Buhari stressed that the fight against insecurity, was one that must be won, saying that Nigeria must be peaceful and that Nigerians must live in safety and feel secure.
The President commended the author of the book for his efforts.
“It is a delight that he put down the experience he acquired; as President of the Senate as well as Chairman of the National Assembly for others to benefit from.
“The book will be very useful to those who will like to study the problems the country had; at that period of its history,” he said.
Buhari said that there was no nation on earth without a problem.
“Nigeria’s challenges are not insurmountable,” he said.
He said that his administration has completed projects abandoned by past administrations; and has also embarked on infrastructure development across the country; including rail and road construction.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, said that Nnamani’s lack of desperation stood him out among politicians in the country.
He said that Nnamani had the desire to serve, but was not desperate for power; also adding that the launch of the book has marked the beginning of yet another life for him.
