President Buhari pledges more resources to deal with insecurity


Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has assured of his commitment to deploy more resources to the military, Police and other security agencies to deal with the deteriorating security situation in the country, The Guardian reported.

Assessing the state of security, the President described the situation, particularly in the Northwest and North Central as “very disturbing.”

According to The Guardian report, the president gave the message shortly after performing the Eid prayers with his family and aides at the forecourt of the State House, Abuja yesterday.

The President said while much had been achieved, security-wise, from the situation he inherited in 2015, more still needed to be done.
