A group within the All Progressives Congress, the APC Legacy Awareness has said President Muhammadu Buhari in recent times has responded to criticisms and is now doing well in tackling security challenges, provision of social infrastructures and the poor state of the economy.
In a statement titled, “Hope Returning Across Nigeria, “coordinators of Legacy Awareness, Barrister Ismail Ahmed,
Lanre Issa-Onilu and Salihu Mohammed Lukman in a statement noted that the past few weeks have been one success story after the other for the present administration.
“The group enumerated the commissioning of the Lagos – Ibadan Standard Gauge Rail, the kick-off of the multi-billion-dollar NLNG Train 7, amongst others as evidence of reawakening by the Buhari administration.
“The group further noted that “Not even the most virulent critics can pretend otherwise anymore.”
On security, the group disclosed that ” the fear that has gripped the nation in recent times is receding while confidence is being renewed as the security agencies are chasing down the criminals, taking the battle to the bandits, unknown gunmen, kidnappers, and other criminal elements who have been holding the country by the jugular and turning Nigeria to a killing field.”
The statement further read in part: “From the South-East to the South-South up to the North-East and North-West, bandits, insurgents, kidnappers and other criminal elements are being given bloodied noses, in fulfilment of President Buhari’s pledge to speak to these undesirable elements in “a language they would understand.”
“In the South-East, for instance, members of the IPOB that have been terrorising many communities, razing down public properties including police stations and killing security agents in the process, have almost been completely decimated.
“For the North-West where kidnapping and banditry are prevalent, the gallant troops are giving the perpetrators a hot chase and neutralising them in large numbers.
“Terrorists in the North-East are also feeling the heat as the military continue to decimate them. We commend our gallant security personnel and call on all Nigerians to support Nigeria’s armed forces for the war against insurgency, banditry, kidnapping, abduction and all crimes to succeed in Nigeria.
“The next few months would witness even more progress on all fronts. With the additional security assets underway for the military to boost its operations and ensure the security of lives and property, coupled with the country’s quick exit from recession occasioned by the Covid-19 pandemic and the gradual return to normalcy on the economic front, this nation is surely on a steady march towards economic and political renaissance.”
