President Muhammadu Buhari has said that despite his resolve to ensure that Nigerians feel secured, the escalating security situation in the country has turned the citizens against him.

He however, said he's not giving up, but would do whatever that is necessary, to win over the trust of the people.

The position of the president was disclosed by his National Security Adviser (NSA), Major General Babagana Monguno (retd), on Tuesday while briefing State House reporters after a meeting of the National Security Council chaired by President Buhari.

According to him, the president has ordered a rejig of security operational strategies in order to prevent further “catastrophe” in the country.

Monguno said the meeting discussed two memos on the problem of drug trafficking and addiction as well as the security situation in the North West and North Central geo-political zones.

The NSA, while speaking on President Buhari’s last marching orders to the nation’s security chiefs that their best effort was not good enough, said that since the issues involved are operational issues, the Minister of Defence, Bashir Magashi, “is working on something” likely to give a new direction to the security agencies.

The president has suffered criticism for his refusal to change the nation's service chiefs despite their failure to improve security in the country, especially the terror ravaged parts of the North.

National Secretary of the People's Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Umar Ibrahim Tsauri, has accused the President of doing nothing since coming to power, but compounding the nation's woes.

Tsauri made the statement in Katsina during the inauguration of the party’s newly elected officials. He added that no right-thinking person would vote for APC, not only in Katsina State, but across the country.

He said, APC had openly demonstrated its incapability and compounded the woes of the people adding that “Katsina people were disappointed with the grave failure of the ruling party in the state to tackle the prevailing security challenges orchestrated by bandits and infrastructural decay in the state.”
