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.
The President also urged the people, irrespective of their religious and political affiliation, to come together in the fight to keep the country united against all odds.
He admitted that the persistent insecurity in parts of the country may have threatened the overall objective of his administration to position the nation on the irreversible trajectory of sustainable growth and progress.
President Buhari, however, assured that the government would remain resolute in its commitments and would continue to press ahead with its programmes and plans.
To achieve this, he stressed that standing together against all odds, was by far greater and would ultimately be more prosperous and viable than the sum of its distinguishable parts.
The President also used the occasion to highlight some of the efforts made so far by his administration, and what Nigerians should expect in the areas of security, economy, and anti-corruption fight, among others
