President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday said Nigeria has witnessed and overcome a good number of testy challenges that would have destroyed it in the last two years.

Buhari who made this known in his Democracy Day speech said the challenges are relating to the country’s security.

”As with all democracies, we will always be going through improvement processes in our desire to reach the goal of a mature democracy, a strong, evolved and integrated nation state to be reckoned with globally.

”The indefatigable CAN DO Spirit of the Nigerian has sustained us and would keep pushing us to put these challenges behind us.

” Unfortunately some of these challenges came in the shape of violent outrages leading to the loss of lives of many of our dear compatriots and the destruction of some of our infrastructure, including those devoted to improving our democratic processes.”

He also condoled with the families and friends of gallant service men and women who lost their lives in the line of duty.

He also commiserated with the families and friends of women and children who were victims of arsons, kidnappings and murders.

” I also share the pains of families and direct victims of ransom-seeking, kidnaped victims who went through unimaginable trauma in the course of their forced imprisonment.”

He, therefore, ordered security agencies to swiftly but safely rescue the victims and bring perpetrators to justice.
