President Muhammadu Buhari has asked Nigerians to envision a year of continued progress against the nation’s combined challenges arising from security and socio-economic issues.
He gave the charge on Friday in his New Year message to Nigerians to usher in the year 2022.
President Buhari also urged Nigerians, irrespective of their religious and political beliefs, to come together in the fight to keep the country united against all odds.
While admitting that the present state of insecurity in a number of areas within the country may have threatened the overall objective of his administration to position the nation on the irreversible trajectory of sustainable growth and progress, the President nevertheless assured that his government would remain resolute in its commitments and would continue to press ahead with its policies.
The President also used the opportunity availed to him by the new year address to highlight some of the achievements made so far by his administration, and what Nigerians should expect in the areas of security, economy, and anti-corruption fight, among others.
