NIGERIA. Kaduna State: President Mohammadu Buhari has assured Nigerians of his administration’s commitment to the provision of a standard healthcare system, world-class learning environment, and modest housing system for their healthy living.
Buhari made the statement in Kaduna at the Passing Out Parade for Cadets of 68 Regular Course which include the Army, Navy and Airforce.
He said that it is the responsibility of every government to make sure that it implements responsible policies to help in addressing the root causes of social vices, corruption, inequity and injustice in the country to create a better living environment for its citizens.
“However, it is now convincing that Nigeria has a real bid in making sure that her children grow up in a world where kidnapping is no more and where school children attend school without fear of being kidnapped. And also where people are not killed because of their tribe, faith or political differences”, he said.

Buhari stated that it is due to these challenges that the country came up with the idea of initiating a new landing ship tank earlier this year adding that this was commissioned by the Nigerian Navy to assist the government in combating insurgency.
“The idea of the Landing Ship Tank is will bolster the Navy’s Sealift capability and promote our global maritime commerce, peace and safety within the Gulf of Guinea and our maritime neighbourhood,” Buhari noted.
Buhari, hence, charged the graduating Officer Cadets to be aware of the world they were going into as it is different from that which confronted many of their predecessors.
The Deputy Commandant of Nigeria Defense Academy (NDA), Air Vice-Marshal Ahmodu appreciated the President for his unending support and commitment to the NDA.
