President Muhammadu Buhari’s media aide, Femi Adesina, says his boss has done enough to leave behind a safer country.
Banditry and kidnapping for ransom are among the most frequent crimes committed in Nigeria, which has been dealing with a variety of security issues in every region of the nation.
But according to Adesina, things are far better now than they were in 2015, when his principal assumed control.
“No doubt about it. He would leave a safer country. When he came in 2015, you could not be sure Nigeria would exist in the next one month. As of 2015, what was happening was that nobody could confidently say that Nigeria would be on the map in the following next week, month or year. But we saw that he came and took the battle to the insurgency,” Adesina said.
“When he came, the insurgency was the main thing and he took the battle to them. Then, it became hydra-headed – banditry, kidnapping for ransom, cultism, and separatist agitations joined. How many challenges can one administration really confront? That’s the issue with the Buhari administration. From day one till now, it was from one challenge to the other.”
He insisted that despite these and the fact that his administration is slated to end next year, the problems had been greatly reduced
