Buhari urges security agencies to remain resolute

President Muhammadu Buhari urges the military and other security agencies to remain resolute in addressing insecurity.

Buhari spoke at a regimental banquet in his honour on Tuesday night in Abuja.

While praising the military’s accomplishments in the fight against terrorism, banditry, and oil theft, Buhari stated that the armed forces must not rest on their laurels until insecurity is overcome.

“I am fully aware of all your sacrifices and commitments in tackling the myriad of security challenges and your contributions to the successful elections in our country. “However, until the issue of insecurity is surmounted, much more is still desired from the Armed Forces of Nigeria.

The President paid respect to security officers who have given the ultimate sacrifice in the country’s defence, while also praising heads of security agencies for their efforts to keep the country safe.

The Defence Headquarters staged a Regimental Dinner in honour of President Buhari on Tuesday as part of festivities planned ahead of the May 29 handover of power to the new administration.

Top government officials and chiefs of other security services attended the dinner, which was held in the newly-built ultramodern Armed Forces Officers’ Mess at Lungi Barracks in Asokoro.

The president inaugurated the mess on arrival before setting in for the regimental dinner.

Past service chiefs, serving and retired military generals were also present.

Regimental Dinner Nights: A Time-Honored Tradition

Regimental dinners, a cherished tradition within the military, have their roots deeply embedded in history.

These ceremonial gatherings serve as a means to promote unity, camaraderie, and a sense of belonging among both seasoned and aspiring officers.

Regimental dinners are not only a platform to pay tribute to heroes but also to commemorate triumphs achieved on the battlefield.
