We Are Making Strong And Transparent Efforts To Fish Out Rogue Elements In The Nigerian Police Force-Buhari
- Calls For Support Of Traditional Rulers In Addressing Demands Of Nigerian Youths
President Muhammadu Buhari has said that there are efforts being made to fish out rogue elements who are in the Nigerian Police.
Buhari said this Thursday in Abuja at a meeting with a delegation of the National Council of Traditional Rulers of Nigeria.
He emphasized the imperative of support of traditional rulers in the administration’s determination to address the demands of the country’s youths.
At a meeting in the State House with a delegation of the National Council of Traditional Rulers of Nigeria led by the Sultan of Sokoto, His Eminence, Alhaji (Dr) Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar III, the President told the royal fathers that “we have heard the loud cries of our youth and children, and we are attending to their concerns.”
He, however, stressed that “To succeed in all of this, we would require your support and voice to help amplify the message. Your proximity to the people places you in a unique position to communicate and ensure that our response is targeted and impactful.”
Describing their “role as guardians of our traditional values and culture” as most critical, the President urged them not to compromise their neutrality “because this is what significantly confers on you, your moral authority and legitimacy.”
According to President Buhari, his Chief of Staff, Prof. Ibrahim Gambari, would lead senior government officials to various parts of the country “and directly engage with you as part of this process. He will be reporting back to me on your various perspectives.
