President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that those criminal elements carrying arms against the country would be brought to justice.
Buhari who spoke at the maiden edition of the APC Progressive Youth Conference held at the International Conference Centre in Abuja on Monday noted that his government is committed to tackling the security challenges bedeviling the nation.
“As I have repeatedly said in recent weeks, every criminal element that has taken up arms against the peace of the country and its citizens will be brought to book accordingly.
“As you are all aware, we are currently dealing with some internal security challenges and I will like to reassure you that as the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, no effort will be spared in tackling them.
“So far, all the policies, initiatives, projects and even appointments by this administration have been guided by equity and inclusiveness.
“There is actually no part of the country that has not been impacted positively in the areas of infrastructure, agriculture and economic support initiative based on peculiarities of the regions, “Buhari said through the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, who represented him at the event.
He further commended the APC youths for organising the event, urging the youth to “never despair, nor relent in our joint task of nation building.”
“Remember, we have no other country but Nigeria. It is the responsibility of every one of us to work towards the development and advancement of this country,” he said.
