The President Muhammadu Buhari, in Abuja on Tuesday, said the government is making significant progress in tackling insecurity in the country through collaboration across borders.

The President noted this while receiving later of credence from the new Canadian High Commissioner to Nigeria, Ambassador James Kingston Christoff and Ambassador of Mexico to Nigeria, Juan Alfred Miranda Oritz, at the State House in Abuja.

He lamented that Nigeria was battling its fair share of challenges arising from global insecurity, climate change, COVID-19 aftershocks and the ripple effects of the Russia-Ukraine conflict.

According to him, “The devastating effect of global insecurity, climate change and the post-COVID-19 era has devastated global economies. Nations continue to struggle to recover from these multiple global challenges.

“The ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine has undermined the progress countries have achieved in tackling food security in the last decade.

He stated that the political instability in Libya continues to fuel terrorism in the Sahel, as well as scuttle democratic substances in both West and Central African regions.

“Nigeria is not left out of the equation as we are fighting to rid our country of banditry, kidnapping, herder/farmer clashes and insurgency. We are however making meaningful progress with the support of friendly countries like yours to sustain this fight until we overcome these challenges,” Buhari said.

He further said, “As the drums of campaign begin to rise, I urge you to be guided by diplomatic practice to ensure that your activities remain within the limits of your profession as you monitor the build-up to the elections and the conduct of the general elections.

He also advised the diplomats to focus on building on the successes of their predecessors.
