President Muhammadu Buhari has admitted that he is overwhelmed by the security situation in the North-West region of the country.
The President said this at the palace of Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar on Thursday January 27.
Buhari who noted that the security situation in the north-east and south-south has improved compared to when he assumed office, maintained that his administration has been doing its best. He also said the military and law enforcement agencies have been given a clear order that they shouldn’t spare any bandit or terrorist.
The President said;
“Every day, we are worried about what is happening in the north-west. When we came, if Nigerians are to be fair to us, they know the condition in the north-east and the south-south, but what is happening now in the north-west is what has honestly overwhelmed me.
“The same people, the same culture, killing each other, stealing each other’s property. We are going to do our best and the military and law enforcement agencies have been given a clear order that they shouldn’t spare any bandit or terrorist.
“We are going to hand over a secure country better than we inherited it.”
