The Police Assistance Committee (PAC) has urged the President-elect, Gen Muhammadu Buhari (rtd), to take the issue of insecurity in the nation as paramount.
In a congratulatory statement made available to Daily Independent in Lagos on Friday, the PAC Director General, Martins John-Oni, expressed the hope that with his military background, Buhari will find solution to the Boko Haram insurgency, which has continued to ravage the North Eastern part of the country.
John-Oni also commended Buhari over his acceptance speech where he pledged to work with those who voted for or against him and will carry everyone along in the task of nation building.
While thanking God for making the election peaceful, John-Oni also commended President Goodluck Jonathan for accepting defeat during last week’s presidential election and congratulation Buhari, describing this as a rare act of magnanimity.
He also commended the Vice President-elect, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Leader, Bola Tinubu and other party leaders for their victory, even as he urged them to ensure that they fulfil their campaign promises when they finally takes over the reins of governance.
John-Oni promised that his organisation will work with the in-coming government as it has been doing with the incumbent administration in assisting to provide intelligence, information and intelligence gathering to all security agencies in the country.
He stressed that with the support and assistance of the PAC, security agencies, especially the police, had been successfully combating crimes in the past decades, even as the organisation will continue to provide other logistics support to security agencies.
