As insecurity in Nigeria escalates, President Muhammadu Buhari declares he is well assured that Nigerians know his administration has done its best in tackling the insecurities.
The declaration came from a statement by Buhari’s Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mr Garba Shehu.
According to Shehu, President Buhari revealed it while speaking to state house correspondents after observing the Eid El-Kabir prayers with his family members and close aides at the Aso villa in Abuja today, July 31.
According to President Buhari, his administration inherited security challenges and have worked tirelessly to tackle them all.
“I want Nigerians to be very conscious of their country and what we inherited when we came in 2015 was Boko Haram in the north-east and the militancy in the south-south… Nigerians know that we have done our best.
“What is coming up in the North West and North Central is very disturbing indeed but I believe the military, the police, and other law enforcement agencies from the report I am getting, I think they could do much better.
“They could do much better, but we are keeping them on the alert all the time to do their duties,” Buhari said.
The President said while much has been achieved security-wise, more still needs to be done. However, considering the insecurity in Nigeria on ground when I came to office, Nigerians know that we have done our best.
The President also stated that the military, the police, and other security agencies are working hard.
“We are making available resources to them to even do better, he assured, adding that from the reports he’s getting, they could do much better…they could do much better. But we are keeping them on the alert all the time to do their duties.”
