President Muhammadu Buhari says his administration will not give soft landing or grant amnesty to insurgents, kidnappers and other criminal elements who are terrorising the country.

Buhari said this during the joint security meeting of Northern State Governors’ Forum and traditional rulers on Thursday.

He averred that his administration continue to deal with insurgents, bandits, kidnappers and other criminals who constitute a threat to innocent citizens across the country

Buhari said his administration is faced with different types of security challenges, noting that this has greatly affected its people oriented policies geared towards addressing the widespread poverty in the country.

He said that he has directed the new service chiefs to come with new strategems that will end the unpleasant situation.

Represented by Ibrahim Gambari, his chief of staff, Buhari said criminality should be handled without resorting to ethnic profiling.

“I must appreciate the efforts of the 19 Northern States Governors’ Forum for their contribution towards national growth and development, especially in this challenging period in our nation’s being where certain fundamental corporate existence need to be frankly deliberated upon and actionable resolutions reached,” Buhari said.

“This meeting is coming at a time when the nation is making steady progress in addressing the many challenges impeding developmental and progress. We are providing critical infrastructure such as roads, railways, airports among others which are critical to economic prosperity of our people as well as opening up economic opportunities for our citizens to pursue legitimate aspirations that grow the economy.

“At the same time, we are confronting the various dimensions of security challenges that continue to slow down the emancipation of our people from poverty and economic deprivation. The Government shall continue to deal with insurgents, bandits, kidnappers and other criminals who constitute a threat to innocent citizens across the country.

“Criminals are criminals and should be dealt with accordingly, without resorting to ethnic profiling. I have already tasked the new Service Chiefs to devise new strategies that will end this ugly situation where the lives of our people continue to be threatened by hoodlums and criminals.

“I expect that at this meeting, your Forum will also discuss and devise ways of building stronger collaboration with the security architecture and the people in defeating criminality across the region and the nation at large.”
