Coalition for Peace, a non-governmental organisation, has praised President Bola Tinubu and his National Security Adviser, Nuhu Ribadu, for improving security across the country.
The award was given by the group. On Tuesday, its President, Malam Adamu Haruna, and Secretary, Jonah Simon, issued a statement in Abuja.
The organisation acknowledged the two’s inter-agency coordination, which has boosted peace and security across the country in recent months.
The improved, cordial working relationship was attributed to the fact that terrorists and criminals are currently on the run.
It praised Mr. President’s and the NSA’s efforts, saying that they had created confidence in the minds of farmers who are now returning to farm this rainy season for planting.
It stated that this was a shift from the previous administration, during which farmers and vulnerable citizens in communities were slain, kidnapped, and their women raped.
“This administration has been quick to respond to distress calls, particularly by acting on intelligence reports that lead to attacks and criminal arrests.”
“The interagency cooperation and harmonious working relationship have resulted in an improvement in national security.”
“There is no doubt about it, and President Tinubu and the NSA should be applauded for it.”
“It is worth noting that farmers have returned to farming because they have faith in the government’s prompt response to security threats, which obviously reduces security challenges.”
“Last week, the revelation of the high number of terrorists killed by this administration reflected the government’s seriousness in tackling insecurity,” the group added.
It went on to say that “there can be nothing equal to prompt security response and taking action on intelligence,” a development that has resulted in the deaths of a huge number of terrorists since Tinubu gained power on May 29.
“The increased security at the nation’s borders has also reduced kidnapping incidents in the country’s north-west and north-east geopolitical zones.”
As a result, the organisation asked the security agents not to give up, telling them that Nigerians are ready to provide them their full support and encouragement.
