President Muhammadu Buhari has done enough to leave a safer country, the Presidency declared yesterday.
Banditry, kidnapping for ransom, and other violent crimes are just a few of the security issues that Nigeria has been dealing with on a national level.
On Sunday night’s episode of Politics Today on Channels Television, Special Advisor to the President on Media and Publicity Femi Adesina said that he was unmoved by the current wave of immigration because many Nigerians had always desired to leave the nation.
He asserted that the country’s security situation has improved since the President took office in 2015.
He said: “No doubt about it. He would leave a safer country. When he came in 2015, you could not be sure Nigeria would exist in the next one month.
”As of 2015, what was happening was that nobody could confidently say that Nigeria would be on the map in the following next week, month or year. But we saw that he came and took the battle to the insurgents.
“When he came, the insurgency was the main thing and he took the battle to them. Then, it became hydra-headed – banditry, kidnapping for ransom, cultism, and separatist agitations joined.
”How many challenges can one administration really confront? That’s the issue with the Buhari administration. From day one till now, it was from one challenge to the other.”
Adesina insisted that the government had made significant efforts to reduce the difficulties and would finish on a positive note.
