We have new equipment to fight any form of insecurity, says President Buhari
Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has disclosed that the country has received new equipment to fight any form of insecurity.
This was stated on Saturday by President Buhari at the passing-out parade of the 68 regular course comprising officers of the army, navy and air force, of the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) in Kaduna state.
The president, who expressed concern over insecurity, said he believes that the new equipment will contribute significantly to improving security in the country.
“As you are all aware, our beloved nation Nigeria is facing many security challenges at this period. We continue to face security threats and violent crimes such as insurgency, banditry, kidnapping and politically motivated killings which threaten our national integration,” he said.
“I assure you that this administration will continue to do everything within the ambit of the law to eliminate all forms of violent crimes that are creating fear and anxiety among the citizenry.
The president said his administration remains committed to addressing the country’s security challenges, corruption and the economy.
“It is against this backdrop that we introduced a new Landing Ship Tank early this year to replace the first set of naval ship tanks which were decommissioned by the Nigerian Navy,” he said, according to a statement by Garba Shehu, presidential spokesman.
