“The determination and zeal of Nigeria’s security forces to end insecurity is evident in the recent successes recorded in the fight against armed banditry and other violent crimes in the country.

“I am particularly happy that our security agents have stood up to the challenges of insecurity more than ever before, at the moment their efforts have been cushioning the effects of banditry, kidnapping.

“I commend the efforts of our gallant security men and women, I therefore request all to pray for more successes in their operations” she said.

“As you may be aware, this government is making its exit and perhaps witnessing the last anniversary in this administration .

“I urge you all to pray for  peaceful elections and transition and we all need to work together to achieve a better Nigeria” she said.

The first lady however expressed concern over the global economic instability occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic and Russia-Ukraine crisis, which resulted in the fluctuation of the value of the naira.

She therefore expressed optimism that the federal government was making concerted efforts towards addressing the situation(NAN)
