President Muhammadu Buhari has revealed that Nigerians know that his administration has done its best in fighting insecurity.
The Special Assistant to President Buhari on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, disclosed this in a statement issued on Friday, July 31. According to him, the President said this when he spoke to state house correspondents after observing the Eid El-Kabir prayers with his family members and close aides at the presidential villa in Abuja today, July 31.
President Buhari pointed out that his administration inherited security challenges and have worked effectively to tackle them all.
The president said, “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.”
He added, “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.”
President Buhari noted that while much has been achieved security-wise, more still needs to be done.
