President Muhammadu Buhari has claimed that his administration inherited a Country at crossroads with bombs detonating in the cities.
Buhari disclosed this during the passing-out parade and commissioning ceremony of cadets of regular Course 69 of the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA), in Kaduna on Thursday.
He said; “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 urged the cadets to replicate the spirit of social cohesion they learned at the NDA and be incorruptible models to society.
Buhari also stressed that the cadets 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.
The dignitaries present at the ceremony are Service Chiefs and the Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali; Senate President Ahmed Lawan; the governors of Niger and Kaduna States, as well as National Assembly members.
