President Muhammadu Buhari has noted that he has done is best in securing Nigerians and fighting insecurity.
Garba Shehu, Presidential media aide, in a statement released today, made this known while speaking 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.
Buhari noted that his administration inherited security challenges and have worked effectively 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.
He noted that the law enforcement agencies could do much better, and they are at alert all the time to do their duties.
The President said while much has been achieved security-wise, more still needs to be done.
“He (the President) said considering the security situation on ground when he came to office, ‘Nigerians know that we have done our best. However, what is coming out of the North West and the North Central is very disturbing’ Shehu said in a statement.
