I share your pains – Buhari tells Nigerians on Independence Anniversary

President Muhammadu Buhari has assured citizens that their resilience and patience will not end in vain as his administration continues to reposition and strengthen the security agencies to tackle nation’s security challenges.

The president gave the assurance while addressing Nigerians in a broadcast to mark Nigeria’s 62nd Independence Anniversary on Saturday in Abuja.

”As we continue to de-escalate the security challenges that confronted us at inception of this administration, newer forms alien to our country began to manifest, especially in the areas of kidnappings, molestations/killings of innocent citizens, banditry.

”All of these are being addressed by our security forces.

”I share the pains Nigerians are going through and I assure you that your resilience and patience would not be in vain.”

He said the administration continued to reposition and strengthen the security agencies to enable them to deal with all forms of security challenges.

”At the inception of this administration in 2015, I provided the funding requirements of the security agencies which was also improved in my second tenure in 2019 to enable them to surmount security challenges.

”We will continue on this path until our efforts yield the desired results.”

Buhari, however, noted that in order to address insecurity, the Federal Government worked methodically in reducing insurgency in the North East, militancy in the Niger Delta, ethnic, religious tensions and other problems threatening the country.
