President Muhammadu Buhari, yesterday, said he was convinced that with the cooperation of Nigerians, the challenges the country faced would be surmounted soon. Buhari stated this at the wedding of the son of Taraba State Governor, Mr. Darius Ishaku, which held at the Anglican Church, Katsina Road, Kaduna.
Represented by the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), General Lucky Irabor, the president acknowledged that the security situation in the country was a challenge, but assured it would come to an end. He said the large gathering at the wedding, which cut across political and religious divides, was an indication that together Nigerians could confront the challenges and the enemies of the country.
Buhari stated, “I am so convinced today that the challenges we face as a nation will certainly come to an end. I am so convinced by virtue of not just the exaltation that we have (at the wedding) but also a cross-section of those who came to honour Dikan and Zulai today – all coming from across party and religious lines.
“So, what it tells me is that together, we stand united to be able to confront the challenges and, of course, the enemies of the state.”
In his own comments, Irabor said, “The security of this nation certainly is a challenge currently, but it shall come to pass.” He said everything was being done to ensure the security of Nigerians, as directed by the President.
According to him, “We are doing everything possible, as the Commander-in-Chief has mandated me as the Chief of Defence Staff to do everything possible to ensure security of lives and property of everything Nigerian and everyone that is inhabiting the geographical space of Nigeria is protected.
And this, of course, I thought I should put in context to thank everyone for all the support that you have given to the armed forces, the police and other security agencies as they forge ahead in bringing peace to our land.”
