President Bola Tinubu has expressed his unwavering commitment to ensuring the safety and protection of lives and property in the country.
Tinubu also assured the public that the Armed Forces under his administration are well-equipped to enable them to discharge their responsibilities of protecting the lives and property of the citizens both internally and globally.
He made this known in a resolute speech delivered at the graduation ceremony of the Senior Course 45 of the Command and Staff College in Jaji, Kaduna.
Acknowledging the sensitivity of the current security environment, he emphasised the need for innovative strategies and advanced equipment to tackle evolving security threats.
Tinubu noted that contemporary and emerging security threats in the West African subregion demanded that members must work together to bring peace to the Lake Chad region.
According to Tinubu: “As Commander-in-Chief, I have given myself the following charge: to deploy the entire machinery of state power to ensure the security of our people and property in a just and democratic society.
“Under my predecessor, the Armed Forces worked tirelessly toward necessary reforms to enhance combat effectiveness and operational capability. We must now pick up the pace.”
