President Muhammadu Buhari has once again reassured Nigerians that he would hand over a Nigeria free of insecurity to the next set of leaders in 2023.
The President gave the assurance while speaking during the conferment of National Honours on 450 Nigerians and non-Nigerians at the 2022 National Honours Award Investiture, which was held at the International Conference Centre in Abuja, on Tuesday.
Buhari reiterated the determination of his administration to root out all forms of banditry, criminality, terrorism and insurgency before leaving office in May 2023.
The president, while conferring the awards on the recipients, said the affected citizens had distinguished themselves in the service of the nation and humanity.
”We must always endeavour to do our best for our country. We will continue to root out all forms of banditry, criminality, terrorism and insurgency in the land. As I stated earlier in my Independence address to the nation, I will hand over a Nigeria that is free from insecurity to the next generation of leaders”, he stressed.
