…promises to reorganize security, personnel
President Muhammadu Buhari has assured Nigerians that their country is safe and would continue to defeat its numerous challenges
The President stated these in a New Year’s speech, saying that the country would continue “to weather all stormy waters and emerge stronger and better where others have fallen and disintegrated”.
Buhari said there will be a “re-energising and reorganising” of the security apparatus and personnel, an indication that the administration may reorganize the security architecture as a way to address the mirage of security challenges including the menace of Boko Haram, militia attacks on communities, banditry and kidnappings.
He said that the year 2021 will indeed be a year where “we will work to reinforce the hopes of fellow Nigerians in the vision of a united and progressive Nigeria.
“Some of the key priority areas we would direct our attention and strengths to include: re-energising and reorganising the security apparatus and personnel of the armed forces and the police with a view to enhance their capacity to engage, push back and dismantle the operations of both internal and external extremist and criminal groups waging war against our communities in some parts of the country.”
