Buhari spoke with State House correspondents on Thursday shortly after observing the Eid-il-Fitr prayers at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

In a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, the President said he has been under pressure from Nigerians to find a lasting solution to the country’s worst security challenges.

“I expect Nigerians to be more understanding on the issues involved, looking at the time and available resources,” Buhari said.

“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 elite should make the attempt to understand the military. If we order weapons and armored vehicles, it takes time for the manufacturer.

“It takes time to ship them and when brought here eventually, they are taken to training institutions, train the trainers before sending them to the field. This is a very long process.”

President Buhari, however, assured Nigerians that his administration would use all available resources and manpower in dealing with bandits and other criminals wreaking havoc in many parts of the country.
