‘’We will mobilise the totality of our national security, military and law enforcement assets to protect all Nigerians from danger and from the fear of danger.

‘’We will expand and improve upon the use of technology, enhance recruitment of personnel and bolster existing agencies and systems to achieve this fundamental national security goal.

‘’We will build an economy that produces more of the everyday items, both agricultural and manufactured goods, that define an individual’s and a nation’s standard of living,’’ he said.
