President Muhammadu Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari has disclosed that when he was elected in 2015, he was handed a country at crossroads with bombs detonating in cities.
The President stated this when he spoke at the passing-out parade and commissioning ceremony of cadets of Regular Course 69 of the Nigerian Defence Academy in Kaduna state on Thursday October 6.
He, however, said his government has been able to manage Nigeria’s security crisis in the last seven years.
“When this government came in 2015, we inherited a country at crossroads with bombs going off with frightening frequency even in our cities and we came in to manage the crisis'' the President said
The President charged the cadets to replicate the spirit of social cohesion they learned at the NDA and be incorruptible models to society, noting that they emerged in the era of expanding global security threats.
A total of 239 cadets including those from sister African countries such as Liberia, Sierra Leone, Niger Republic, Chad, and Uganda are passing out from the Academy as junior military officers.
