Olubolade gave the assurance in a message to mark the 2nd anniversary of President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration and 14 years of unbroken democracy in the country.
He noted that the nation had passed through a very dark tunnel in the past few years as a result of the activities of undesirable elements.
Olubolade said such elements were bent on destroying the laudable dreams of the nation’s founders as they unleashed terror and other violent activities on the nation.
He urged Nigerians to “see the light at the end of the dark tunnel as exemplified in the continually improving security situation brought about by the joint efforts of the security agencies’’.
He assured that the Nigeria Police would continue to discharge its duties to the nation in spite of recent drawbacks, especially the recent loss of some officers on active service.
Olubolade said the loss was the price they had to pay in protecting the lives and property of Nigerians.
He commended President Goodluck Jonathan for “his boldness and display of a high sense of responsibility and responsiveness in declaring a state of emergency in the volatile areas’’.
The minister called on Nigerians to give unqualified support to Jonathan in his determined effort to secure the nation and provide good leadership.
