Insecurity: Buhari Asks Nigerians To Show More Understanding
The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on Thursday, urged Nigerians to show more understanding on the current security situation in the country.
According to a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, the President made the appeal while speaking with State House correspondents shortly after observing the Eid prayers, marking the end of one-month-long Ramadan fast, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The statement was titled, ‘President Buhari pledges action against bandits’ threat to national food security.’
Buhari was quoted as saying that “I expect Nigerians to be more understanding on the issues involved, looking at time and available resources.
“For example, when we came in, in the North East, ask people in Adamawa and Borno States and the South-South in terms of security.
“Without security, you can’t do anything. Our big surprise and disappointment is what is happening in the North West and we are dealing with it.”
The President also appealed to the nation’s elite to show a better appreciation of the problems facing the country.
