Irabor disclosed that the military is working with other security agencies and would stop at nothing to provide adequate security as its contribution to the nation's development.

“Our determination to uphold democratic growth is rock solid.


“I assure you that the Armed Forces of Nigeria and other security agencies will consolidate all the successes recorded so far, especially on the ongoing counter-insurgency and anti-banditry operations across the country.

“We shall continuously and tirelessly strive to secure all that constitute Nigeria’s wealth as our contribution to national development.

“On behalf of officers and personnel of the armed forces, the police, and other security agencies I most sincerely thank the president for gracing this occasion.

“Your coming has boosted our morale. Consequently, I hereby reaffirm our loyalty to the president and the constitution of Nigeria as this administration rounds off,” he said.
