President Muhammadu Buhari says his administration has made an impact on security, economy and corr#ption.
The president said this while speaking at an event in Kano on Thursday, June 16, 2022.
According to him, “As you are all aware, this administration came to office determined to make impact in three main areas: security, building a sustainable economy and fi#ht against corruption. We can say that recent positive developments in these areas have shown that despite the challenges on ground, we can see general improvement in all three areas.
In the area of corr#ption, as you are all aware, I am determined to ensure that we do not have a repeat of what has gone on in previous administrations and we have taken a strong stand against pervasive corruption.
This administration has also focused on security by repositioning our national security to perform their duties effectively. We have equally embarked on some crucial changes in their funding, structure, and modes of operation.
In a world where insecurity is constantly evolving; law enforcement responses have to equally evolve not just to keep up but to stay ahead. Also, as part of efforts to modernize the Nigeria Police Force, this Administration has intensified both international and local training and retraining of our officers and men in addition to providing new platforms and other resources.
These approaches have yielded positive results as it is glaring that Nigeria’s ranking has improved on the world Counter-Terr@rism global index from 4th to 6th position on the list of the most terr@rized nations.
Across the North Central and North West of the country, we have made progress with regards to stemming the tide of communal viol@nce, farmer-herdsmen cl@shes, cattle rustling, and kidn@pping.
We will continue to demonstrate zero tolerance for crime and crimin@lity. Those who take laws into their hands, who bear arms illegally and who seek to profit from a climate of fear and insecurity will be decisively de@lt with.”
