Nigeria president, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has assured that Nigeria will prevail over its security challenges.

Tinubu, represented by the President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio, gave the assurance while inaugurating the Headquarters of the Defence Intelligence Agency, DIA, on Thursday in Abuja.

The President said his confidence was anchored on the unwavering commitment of members of the Armed forces of Nigeria and the intelligence agencies, including the Department of State Services, DSS, National Intelligence Agency, NIA, and the DIA.

”You have all led me in no doubt that you have no other higher obligation than to serve and secure this nation of ours,” he said.

The President said he had made the task of securing every inch of the country a priority and a sacred duty.

He emphasized that the DIA was a key agency in the security architecture of the country that primarily provides intelligence to the Armed Forces and the Ministry of Defence.

He commended the leadership of the agency, past and present, for conceiving and completing the edifice.

“It is my sincere belief that out of this magnificent office structure shall emerge innovations and creativity in the field of intelligence gathering that will keep Nigeria ahead of its foes and make our country and people safer.

”I want to commend the entire staff of the DIA for their dedication to duty.

“I urge you to be unrelenting, proactive in creating the necessary conditions that will guarantee the realization of the renewed hope agenda for a better country that we all desire.

“The entire nation is behind you and appreciates your sacrifices,” he added
