He said, “We commend President Buhari and all security agencies for their efforts in maintaining peace, stability and ensuring the progress of the nation.”
He continued by stating that funding of the various security agencies should be prioritized by relevant stakeholders so as to enable them to perform their duties diligently.
Muhammed further called on the Federal and State governments to address the issue of unemployment, adding that it is one of the reasons the youths are taking to various social vices.
Responding to the members of the coalition, Governor Abubakar Atiku Bagudu, who was represented by his Chief of Staff, Dr Suleiman Muhammed Argungu, commended the Group for conducting the rally in a peaceful manner.
His words, ” I am truly happy about the way you conducted your rally peacefully and I must commend you for that.”

“I assure you that the administration of Governor Abubakar Atiku Bagudu is collaborating with security agencies to tackle pockets of crimes in the state and the administration will continue to toe the line of proactiveness”, He concluded.
