President Muhammadu Buhari has said the “criminal elements” carrying arms against the country would be brought to justice.

There is currently a high rate of insecurity in the country as kidnapping and killings are widespread.

Speaking at the maiden edition of the APC Progressive Youth Conference held at the International Conference Centre in Abuja, on Monday, Buhari said his administration is committed to tackling the security challenges bedeviling the nation.

The president, who was represented by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, asked APC youths to work for a better future for themselves and the country.

“As I have repeatedly said in recent weeks, every criminal element that has taken up arms against the peace of the country and its citizens will be brought to book accordingly.

“As you are all aware, we are currently dealing with some internal security challenges and I will like to reassure you that as the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, no effort will be spared in tackling them.

“So far, all the policies, initiatives, projects and even appointments by this administration have been guided by equity and inclusiveness.

“There is actually no part of the country that has not been impacted positively in the areas of infrastructure, agriculture and economic support initiative based on peculiarities of the regions, “Buhari said.

Buhari, who said he was pleased with the APC youths for organising the event, said, “never despair, nor relent in our joint task of nation building.”

“Remember, we have no other country but Nigeria. It is the responsibility of every one of us to work towards the development and advancement of this country,” he said.

In his speech at the occassion, the Youth representative in the APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, Barr Ismaeel Ahmed, said the APC youths were determined to ensure that the party retained power beyond 2027.
