President Muhammadu Buhari says rising insecurity in the country will come to an end this year.
Mr Buhari who stated this during the Juma’at prayer for the 2021 Armed Forces Remembrance Day Celebration at the National Mosque also asked Nigerians to pray over the issue to help the military accomplish the task.
Insecurity ranging from kidnapping, insurgency, herdsmen attacks among others have been on the rise. The development forced some regions to set up security outfits to checkmate the situations in their domain.
“This is a year of action and we will finish what we are doing,” the president who was represented by Defence Minister, Magashi Salihi, said at the event.
“What is happening in this country will soon be over. This year, we will finish what we are doing. Pray for us that we succeed.”
He also said the contributions of the nation’s fallen heroes would always be remembered for the supreme price they paid to protect the territorial integrity of the country.
