Buhari also promised to provide the necessary support to the armed forces in order to enhance national security.
He urged the security agencies to sustain the professionalism they exhibited during the Anambra, Osun, and Ekiti States’ governorship elections in the 2023 polls.
Buhari said: “The professionalism you exhibited in the successful conduct of the Anambra, Osun, and Ekiti states elections should also be reflected in the 2023 general elections.
“As a key element of our national power, the Nigerian Army will continue to be a major catalyst for our development especially by providing the needed aid to civil authority.
“This administration has therefore maintained a robust policy towards modernisation of the Nigerian Army and the armed forces in general.
“It is evident that the ongoing progressive modernisation of the Nigerian Army under our administration has greatly improved the capabilities of the service to discharge its roles.”
