President Buhari has commended the soldiers deployed to Katsina state for the way and manner they were carrying out their assignment, and he added that Nigerians deserved some peace.
‘‘Nigerians are looking up to you and us to secure the country. What is happening in the areas of operations is disgraceful.”
“I’m very pleased with the way officers and men are firmly putting it down and I want you to be as ruthless as humanly possible. Nigerians deserve some peace.
“When we came into government, what we promised was security.The country has to be secured to be managed.”
“Secondly, on economy, more than 60 per cent of the population of Nigeria is under 30 years.”
‘‘A lot of them did not have the opportunity to be educated to secure respective jobs; their expectations are very high.”
“The second undertaking we made is to improve the economy and the third is to fight corruption.”
‘‘We have been doing our best and we depend a lot on you to do what is needed in the field.”
“I do not want you to spare any cattle rustler, armed robber or any stupid person who thinks he is above the law.”
‘‘I commend you for the job you have been doing so far and I assure you that I will continue to be a worthy Commander-in-Chief,’’ he said.
The president, who donated five bulls to the military personnel, departed for Abuja after the Sallah break in his country home, Daura.
