He said, “As a nation, we have come very far from where we started and we are getting incrementally closer to where we ought to be. Overcoming the present challenges is but one of a necessary process that we have to undergo as a nation so that we can come out stronger. The day I joined the Nigerian Army I was prepared to lay down my life for Nigeria.
“As your President, I remain ever committed to upholding and defending Nigeria’s Corporate existence. In adhering to the Fundamental Objectives and Directive Principles of State Policy notably section 14(2)(b) I shall do all within my power to ensure that the Security and welfare of the people remain the primary purpose of government.
