Although the origin of the slogan cannot be traced, Nigerians particularly youths have adopted it as motivation to succeed in the new year.

The Force spokesperson, ACP Muyiwa Adejobi, had during a press conference in Abuja on Wednesday, warned against the use of the slogan, citing violence against police officers.

His warning was, however, vehemently opposed by netizens, who further spread the slogan, saying no one can stop them.

But in a tweet on his official X handle on Thursday night, the Force spokesperson explained that the “Police are in the best position to advise and educate Nigerians on possible early warning signs of an impending danger as a civil and people-oriented institution”.

He further warned that the slogan should not be used to attack security operatives while discharging their duties.

“Do not take the 2024 slogan for granted. Do not abuse the slogan and capitalise on it to be attacking security operatives while discharging their duties.

“Be reasonable with the slogan, sue for, and embrace peace anywhere you find yourself, even at home. It is well with our dear country”, he said.
