“The troops showed bravery and courage in securing communities in the general area. We are here to thank them, and to ask for more from them.

“From your end, we solicit support and cooperation for troops and all the personnel working here.

“We have to work together because security is participatory, involving government, security agencies and citizens. Citizens are at the center of these efforts.”
