President Muhammadu Buhari on Friiday said he is extremely worried about the high rate of insecurity in some parts of the country.
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Buhari stated this while speaking in Daura, Katsina State, shortly before addressing students of Government Science Secondary School, Kankara.
The president, who pledged never to betray the truth reposed in him by Nigerians, said that the efforts of his security chiefs “are not good enough”.
“On the issue of insecurity, I’m extremely worried about it, and I hope next year it will be different. Those among the law enforcement agencies that would remain in charge would be extremely busy.
”We have a lot of work ahead of us and some of these things we may not say because I don’t want to compromise the security and efforts being put by the law enforcement agencies.
“But we are accurately aware of our responsibilities. Our responsibility is to secure the country – so we have a lot of work to do.
“Armed forces know their job. I meet them; we have security meetings from time to time, they must be very clear of my instructions, and their effort is not good enough for me.
“It is our responsibility to secure this country for all the citizens to do their businesses without any problem. We haven’t achieved that yet, but, we will keep on trying.”
KanyiDaily recalls that most Nigerians have called for the sack of the service chiefs owing to the worsening security situation in the country, but the President has refused.
