New Year: We’ll remain resolute despite persistent insecurity unraveling gains – PMB

President Muhammadu Buhari has said his administration will remain resolute to continue with programmes and plans despite the fact that the persistent insecurity in certain parts of the country may have threatened to undo the incremental gains.

This was contained in his 2022 New Year speech.

According to the president, his regime is working with international partners and neighbouring countries, and they would “deploy multi-faceted solutions that will be targeted at addressing human security at the grassroots before it leads to insecurity”.

While commiserating with families who lost their lost ones, the president said Nigeria would continue to invest in the firepower needed to fight insecurity.

He said, “I would like to take a moment to remember and honour the gallant Military, Police Officers, and other security agents who have lost their lives in the cause of protecting the territorial integrity of this Nation against both internal and external aggressors, assuring their families that their sacrifices would not be in vain,” he said.

“We equally remember and commiserate with Nigerians who have lost loved ones as a result of insecurity in different parts of the country.

Every life matters and every single death caused by any form of insecurity is a matter of personal concern to me both as a citizen and as the President of this great country.

“The persistent insecurity in certain parts of the country may have threatened to unravel the incremental gains achieved in the real sectors of the economy and in the administration’s overall objective to position the nation on the irreversible trajectory of sustainable growth and progress, but I assure you that we will remain resolute in our commitments and shall continue to press ahead with our programmes and plans.

Buhari said despite the challenges in 2021, it was also a year in which the administration executed successfully, key projects, programmes, and initiatives to fulfil the promises made under the Security, Economy Anti-corruption (SEA) agenda.

He urged all citizens to hope and envision a year of continued progress against “our combined challenges arising from security and socio-economic issues as we welcome 2022”.

He said: “As it is said, the past is but a story told, the future will still be written in gold. Let us be united in our fight to keep our nation united against all odds and with gratitude, celebrate life in this new epoch.

“We remain grateful to the Almighty God for yet another Year attained as a country, united by a common destiny and resolute in our determination to overcome the several challenges along the path to build the great and prosperous nation of our dream.
