Looking ahead, President Tinubu emphasized the commencement of a new era in the national defense and security strategy. This approach would be characterized by a determined commitment to confront the significant threats and challenges faced within the West African subregion. His words reflected a government resolute in its efforts to secure the nation, support its armed forces, and steer the country towards a safer and more stable future.
