… Says the security situation in the Northwest and North Central is disturbing

President Muhammadu Buhari said on Friday that despite inheriting Boko Haram in the northeast and the militants in the south-south when we arrived in 2015, Nigerians know that their administration has done its best.

The President stated this after observing Eid-el-Kabir’s prayers with his family members and aides on the esplanade of the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Friday.

President Buhari, however, noted that much remains to be done. He said the security situation in the Northwest and North Central was disturbing, even when he said the expectation is that security agencies should improve their game.

He assured that there would be more resources for the country’s military, police and other security agencies to deal with the unwanted security situation in some areas of the country.

“What we inherited when we arrived in 2015 was Boko Haram in the northeast and the militants in the south-south. Nigerians know we have done our best. “

Responding to a specific question about the performance of the Chiefs of Service, who recently said he needed to improve, the President said that the military, police and other security agencies are working hard.

“We are making resources available to them to do even better,” he said, adding: “What is happening in the Northwest and North Central is really very disturbing.

“But I think the military, the police and other law enforcement agencies of the report are getting it, I think they could do much better.” They could do a lot better, but we keep them on their toes all the time so they can fulfill their obligations. ”

On the issue of corruption, President Buhari said that all past and present cases will be thoroughly investigated, adding: “That is why we established the (investigative) commission.”

When asked how he (Buhari) feels about the recent revelations by the EFCC and the Niger Delta Commission, he said: “There has been a breach of trust by people trusted by the previous administration and this administration.

“Several assets and some money have been recovered. But we have introduced TSA where all the funds are taken and I said that the assets should be sold and the money go through TSA so that it can be identified at any level and I will see who will come after us and return it back to those who misappropriated public funds ” .

In the specific case of the Niger Delta, the President denounced the waste of resources destined to improve the lives of the people of the region.

He regretted that corruption would not have been useful in this regard, especially “if they remember that there is a 13 percent derivation.”

He also warned against pipeline vandalism in oil-producing areas that often results in environmental pollution.

He said: “Those who are blowing pipes and interfering with the production of petroleum products are hurting their people more than the rest of the Nigerians because most of their people are fishermen, fishermen and farmers.

“Now, if they pollute the land and the waters, the fish enters the depths of the sea where people cannot go and they cannot cultivate anything. They are harming their immediate communities more than anything else. “

In his message to Nigerians as Muslim worshipers celebrate Sallah, he told citizens to be aware of what they are doing.

He said: “I wish Nigerians the best of luck. In the Eid-el-Kabir sermon, the Imam has said it all, we want the safety, prosperity and well-being of all Nigerians. We want Nigerians to be very aware of their country.
