The Presidency says it disagrees with the assumption in certain quarters that there is a security collapse in Nigeria.
President Buhari’s spokesperson, Garba Shehu, while speaking on a Channels Television programme, Sunday Politics, alleged that some of the security challenges being witnessed predated the Buhari administration. He also added that the Government is on top of the security situation in the country, pointing out that order has been restored in the North Central and Niger Delta region.
“We are in total disagreement with the assumptions of collapse of security in the country,” Mr Shehu said.
“The government is on top of the security situation in the country because we have calmed down North Central and Niger Delta.”
“Security challenges have been present before the present administration came to office. We have met our own challenges and we are dealing with them as decisive as we can,” he added.
This is coming after the Buhari administration suffered a backlash over its alleged ineffectiveness in stopping the killings and kidnap cases recorded in various parts of the country.
