President Buhari says Nigerians realize that his government has done its best in fighting insecurity.
An announcement from the Special Assistant to President Buhari on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said the President said this when he addressed state house journalists in the wake of watching the Eid El-Kabir petitions with his relatives and close helpers at the presidential estate in Abuja today, July 31.
As indicated by President Buhari, his organization acquired security challenges and have worked adequately to handle 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 upsetting without a doubt however I accept the military, the police, and other law requirement offices from the report I am getting, I figure they could improve.
They could improve, however we are keeping them on the ready constantly to carry out their responsibilities.” the President is quoted as saying
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.
Responding to a specific question on the performance of the service chiefs which recently, he said needed to get better, the President said 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 I am 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.”
