Insecurity: Nigerians Know We Have Done Our Best – Buhari by Omooba77: 4:34pm On Jul 31
his family members and some top government officials to observe the Eid El-Kabir prayers inside the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The President’s claim that he has done his best on insurgency and militancy came two days after insurgents attacked the convoy of the Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum.


The governor was said to be on routine inspection when his convoy was attacked by suspected members of Boko Haram between Baga and Munguno on Wednesday.

On Thursday, multiple explosions from mortars fired by suspected Boko Haram members hit Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, leaving many injured.

But Buhari, who recalled that his regime inherited the security challenges from the previous administration, said he has done his best.

He however knocked security agencies on the current security challenges in the North West and North Central, saying they can do better than what they are currently doing.


The President said, “I want Nigerians to be very conscious of their country and what we inherited when we came in 2015 was Boko Haram – North East and the militants, the South-South. Nigerians know that we have done our best.

“What is coming up in the North West and North Central is very disturbing indeed but I believe the military, the police, and other law enforcement agencies from the report I am getting, I think they could do much better.


They could do much better, but we are keeping them on the alert all the time to do their duties.”


The President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, later issued a statement quoting Buhari as giving assurances 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.

The statement was titled “President Buhari pledges more resources to deal with ‘very disturbing’ security situation in parts of the country.”

Shehu said while assessing the state of security in the country, the President described the situation, particularly in the North West and the North Central parts of the country as “very disturbing.”

He further quoted Buhari as saying that while much had been achieved, security-wise, from the situation he inherited in 2015, more still needed to be done.
The statement read, “He (the President) said considering the security situation on ground when he came to office, ‘Nigerians know that we have done our best. However, what is coming out of the North West and the North Central is very disturbing.’

“Responding to a specific question on the performance of the service chiefs which recently, he said needed to get better, the President said that the military, the police, and other security agencies are working hard.

“We are making available resources to them to even do better,” he assured, adding that “from the reports I am getting, they could do much better…they could do much better. But we are keeping them on the alert all the time to do their duties.”

Correct. Especially those who have awful stories to tell. Those who have lost their loved ones know that the government is on top of the situation.

A man cannot give what he doesn't have.

If this is the best they could do, then their best isn't good enough for us.

We deserve much more better than this.

Let me assure you that if I am elected president, the world will have no cause to worry about Nigeria as it has had to recently; that Nigeria will return to its stabilising role in West Africa; and that no inch of Nigerian territory will ever be lost to the enemy because we will pay special attention to the welfare of our soldiers in and out of service.

We will give them adequate and modern arms and ammunitions to work with, we will improve intelligence gathering and border controls to choke Boko Haram’s financial and equipment channels, we will be tough on terrorism and tough on its root causes...

We will always act on time and not allow problems to irresponsibly fester, and I, Muhammadu Buhari, will always lead from the front and return Nigeria to its leadership role in regional and international efforts to combat terrorism.

So so excuses & blame game.Nothing new.After all Mr.President once said his "service chiefs are still racking their brain" while @ the same time telling a beleaguered nation that "the only thing we can do now is to pray."

Meanwhile Buratai also said "Nigeria is more safer now than before." While the defense ministry is giving Nigerians silly reasons "why We(Nigerian Army) Cannot Expose Boko Haram Sponsors." Buhari is a failure and remains a failure.

I rememner prior to 2015 elections, Buhari and APC were making noise of how they will stop Boko Haram, how he will lead from the front as a retired general , today the story has changed to Nigerians knows we have done our best.

It simple. You can't give what you don't have. Buhari is a failure all round.

Yes Nigerians have seen your best of:

1. First making a statement that an attack on Boko Haram is an attack on the North.

2. Poorly equipping our gallant soldiers to fight Boko Haram, and most times, some of their allowances and salaries are withheld by their superior officers.

3. Collecting billions for security vote yet the security of the nation keep detororiating.

4. Retaining the incompetent service chiefs, instead of allowing new people to come on board, you retained the set of failures till date.

5. Treating captured terrorists to a buffet and releasing them back to the society all in the name of " Repentant Boko Haram.

Buhari you are simply a disaster as long as leadership in the 21st century is concerned.

This man puts the I in incompetent. He had no strategic plan to wipe out the BH sect yet he was running his mouth just to score votes.

A leader makes no excuses. In a sane country, he should have resigned for failing to deliver the tons of promises he made millions of Nigerians. But No, this is Africa where geriatric politicians prefer dying in power.

Failed leadership!
