President Muhammadu Buhari, on Tuesday, has vowed to use everything within his powers to fight and end insecurity in the country adding that his administration will bring perpetrators of criminal activities to book.
The president said this at the State House Conference Centre during a dinner with members of the National Assembly.
He said ‘‘insecurity, manifesting as insurgencies, banditry, kidnapping and urban crime of all sorts is the single most difficult challenge we face today.’’
‘‘Whatever their motivations may be, their actions are an existential threat to our country.
‘‘In these circumstances, we must do everything within our power, without consideration of distractions, to put an end to their activities and bring them to book.
‘‘We cannot allow ourselves to be distracted from this objective, or waver in our commitment, and I am confident that together we will triumph in our present efforts,’’ he said.
