Again, President Muhammadu Buhari has maintained his administration will tackle bandits in the Northwest.
Speaking in Maiduguri, Borno State, Buhari said Nigeria is currently taking deliveries of some military hardware that will be used against bandits.
Buhari said: “I am adequately aware of successes here and our failures elsewhere especially in my geopolitical zone, the North West, where it is the same people, the same culture who are stealing each other’s properties, killing each other, what for?
“We have ordered and started receiving military hardware from the United State of America; Aircraft, Helicopters, Armoured vehicles and we are going to be very very hard on them.
“The problem is in the North West, As I said, it is the same people, the same culture, we are going to deal with them.
“I know and I swear with the Holy Quran, which I believe with that I will uphold the Constitution of the country, by that I must go in 17 months, and I will go, God willing, and I hope whoever is coming will try to do the three things I tried to do. One, secure the country because unless the country is secured, it cannot be managed.”
