Lai Mohammed Replies Obasanjo, Says Buhari Is Doing A Lot To Protect Nigerians

Lai Mohammed has reacted to a remark by former Nigerian PresidentOlusegun Obasanjo that President Muhammadu Buhari has nothing more to offer in tackling banditry, kidnapping, and general insecurity in the country.

Infoexpert24 reports that the Minister of Information and Culture said the remark that Buhari can’t tackle insecurity in Nigeria is fallacious and untrue.

Addressing a press conference in Abuja, Lai Mohammed stressed that Buhari is doing a lot to keep Nigerians safe.

He pointed out that the president is equipping the military to effectively tackle insecurity in the country.

“Gentlemen, President Buhari has done so much, under very difficult economic and social conditions, to tackle insecurity in our country. Not only has he done so much. President Buhari continues to do much more to keep Nigerians safe. To say he has nothing more to offer is untrue, fallacious, and smacks of dirty politicking.

“By boosting the number and capacity of our fighting forces, Mr. President is putting them in good stead to tackle insecurity not just during the life of his Administration but long after he would have left office. President Buhari is leaving a legacy of security, infrastructural development, economic prosperity, and social cohesion for Nigeria. This may not seem obvious today, amidst daunting challenges, but posterity will be kind to this President.

“Yes, banditry and kidnapping have added to the state of insecurity, President Buhari has also continued to provide quality leadership in order to ensure that our security agencies decisively tackle the cankerworm of insecurity of any hue,” Lai Mohammed said.

“No administration in Nigeria’s recent history has provided the security agencies with the hardware needed to tackle insecurity as that of President Buhari, in addition to raising the morale of our security men and women. Only last week, Mr. President commissioned an armada of naval boats and ships in the latest effort to enhance our nation’s maritime security. The army, the air force, and the police, among others, have also been receiving modern hardware to strengthen their arsenal.”
