President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday promise service chiefs that the federal government would provide resources to fight against insecurity in the country.
The President stated this while assessing the state of security in the country.
Buhari in his statement described the attack on innocent Nigerians in the North West and North Central parts of the country as “very disturbing.”
He stated this while addressing Nigerians shortly after performing the Eid prayers with his family and aides at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The assurance was also contained in a statement released by his spokesman, Garba Shehu, on Friday.
President Buhari who noted that much has been achieved in the area of security since he took over power in 2015, stated that more still needs to be done.
He said considering the security situation on the ground when he came to office, “Nigerians know that we have done our best. However, what is coming out of the North West and North Central is very disturbing.”
The president while speaking on the performance of the Service Chiefs said 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 I am getting, they could do much better. But we are keeping them on the alert all the time to do their duties.”
