Insecurity in Nigeria, according to President Muhammadu Buhari, would soon be a thing of the past.
Buhari stated in a Christmas message on Friday that despite “amazing victories” in the fight against insecurity, there are still some obstacles.
The president stated that the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) must work together to combat insecurity.
“On security, despite the remarkable successes generally recorded, we still have some challenges,” he said.
“Our courageous security forces, bolstered by the necessary support from this administration, daily confront the wicked ones amongst us, who continue to threaten the peace of the land.
“Recently, during the meeting with fellow Heads of State of the ECOWAS, I discussed the need to intensify efforts to jointly confront this menace causing instability in our sub-region.
“I am confident that with the renewed commitment and empowerment of our committed security personnel, all these issues which inflict pain and trauma on us will soon be history.”
