President Muhammadu Buhari, while speaking after the private Eid prayers held with his family and aides at the forecourt of the State House, Abuja yesterday, described the deteriorating security situation in the North West and the North Central as “very disturbing.”

President Buhari said that while much had been achieved security wise from the situation he inherited in 2015, more still needed to be done.

“I want Nigerians to be very conscious of their country, and what we inherited when we came in 2015 was Boko Haram – North East and the militants, the South-South. Nigerians know that we have done our best,” he said.

Responding to a question on the performance of the Service Chiefs which he recently said needed to get better, the President said that the military, the police and other security agencies were working hard.

“We are making resources available to them to even do better,” he said.

He added: “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.”

Asked what he wished Nigerians as they celebrate the Eid El-Kabir, the President said: “I wish Nigerians the best of luck.

‘In the Eid-Kabir sermon, the Imam has said it all. We want security, prosperity and wellbeing of all Nigerians. We want Nigerians to be very conscious of their country.”

Meanwhile, Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma and his Northern counterpart, Abubakar Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi State, spoke highly of the Buhari administration, saying the President did performed remarkably well in the area of security.

The Imo State Governor has said the president’s determined confrontation of the security challenges, the fight against corruption and his economic policies have brought stability to Nigeria.

Bagudu on his part, has said President Muhammad Buhari has delivered on the three cardinal promises he made during the 2015 electioneering campaign.

He said: “On security, there are increasing efforts by the security agencies to bolster peace and security in the nation.

“Currently, there is no territory of the country that is under the control of insurgents like it was inherited.

“Buhari succeeded in turning around the economy of the country, as he pledged.

“Buhari had successfully delivered on all the three cardinal promises which he promised during his 2015 campaign."
