The Federal Government says it is making efforts to tackle banditry, terrorism and other criminal activities in Nigeria.
President Muhammadu Buhari said this, on Tuesday, when he received the letters of credence from the new Canadian High Commissioner to Nigeria, Ambassador James Kingston Christoff and Ambassador of Mexico to Nigeria, Juan Alfred Miranda Oritz, at the State House in Abuja.
While calling for more international collaboration to tackle insecurity, President Buhari said that Nigeria has made meaningful progress in fighting insecurity with the support of friendly countries, including; Canada and Mexico.
At the event, which signals the assumption of duty of the new ambassadors, President Buhari tasked them to build on the achievements of their predecessors, insisting that Nigeria counts on their support, particularly in addressing issues of marine-related crime, among others.
The President, who lamented the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine, saying it has undermined efforts in boosting global food security, also believes that global insecurity, as well as the COVID-19 pandemic which hit the world in 2020 has affected major economies.
