President Muhammadu Buhari, today, assured Nigerians that the country was entering into its glorious era despite the insecurity and economic challenges it currently faces.
The President, who was represented by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, stated this at the graduation of Senior Executive Course 37 of the National Institute of Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPPS) in Kuru, Jos.
He promised that Boko Haram and other such insurgent groups around the country would soon become history.
The President charged the institute to conduct comprehensive study on causes of insurgency and how to build civil capacity to defeat mindless violence.
“I want the institute to come up with policies which integrate needs of the vast majority of the populace and not just based on GDP projections, “the News Agency of Nigeria quoted President Buhari as saying at the forum.
“MNI’s end up in their offices after their course of study at NIPPS, without the required enthusiasm to enforce implementation of the policies they made.
“I think we must encourage ourselves and take ourselves seriously instead of doing this just to take a title.
“The institute will find a way of monitoring members instead of just producing high quality results which just die here.
“Let’s make efforts to see that those who implement policies use them,” he said.
