He spoke on Saturday during the 7th and 8th combined convocation of the Federal University Dutsin-Ma (FUDMA), Katsina State.
Represented by Prof. Abdulkarim Mohammed, Vice Chancellor, Federal University Dutse (FUD), Tinubu said the government was greatly concerned about the security situation in the country.
He said that his administration was fully committed to defeat terrorism, kidnapping, banditry and other criminal activities, especially in northern part of the country.
The President, however, said this could not be achieved without the support and cooperation of all Nigerians.
“Security is a collective responsibility. I therefore appeal to all Nigerians to join hands with the government by giving useful information to security agents on suspicious persons and miscreants.
“Let us keep the hope alive and be optimistic, by the grace of God, we shall overcome these challenges,” he said.
