Buhari urges political parties to join hands to defeat insecurity


President Muhammadu Buhari has urged all political parties in the country to keep elections and election-related differences aside and join the administration’s drive to defeat insecurity in the country.

President Buhari’s spokesman, Femi Adesina, in a statement late yesterday night, said the president made the call at an Iftar dinner with members of the business community and the leadership of political parties in Abuja.

The presidential aide quoted the president as describing insecurity as a common enemy bedeviling the country.

President Buhari recounted that last week the National Executive Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) had a tremendous success at its meeting, ending with a clear message that the party would continue to push for the establishment of democratic principles at all levels.

On ease of doing business in the country, President Buhari revealed that his administration had done exceedingly well in improving the business climate.
