Boss Mustapha, former secretary to the government of the federation, says the country is tackling security challenges with superior firepower.
He said this at the 11th triennial national delegates conference held in Abuja.
Mustapha, who represented President Muhammadu Buhari, said the conference came at a time Nigeria needs every sector of the economy to contribute towards nation-building.
He said the current administration would continue to provide good governance, adding that its efforts “have begun to yield positive results” .
“The security challenges we are currently facing are not insurmountable,” he said.
“I can report that we are meeting these challenges with much greater support to the security forces in terms of funding, equipment and improved local intelligence.
“We are meeting these challenges with superior strategy, firepower and resolve.”
He also said the administration would try to create 10 million jobs every year to boost the economy.
“The economy is making a steady progress and the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) is expected to grow by 2.7 percent this year,” he said.
“Our external reserves have risen to $45 billion and can finance a number of our foreign commitments. We will try to create 10 million jobs yearly to continue to boost our economy and make live better for our people.
“We will concentrate on agriculture, education, power and other infrastructure, manufacturing and social intervention schemes. We will promote good governance and fight corruption to a standstill.”
