Speaker of the House of Representatives Femi Gbajabiamila says though Boko Haram had been decimated, “security is still very terrible” under the watch of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Mr Gbajabiamila made this statement while addressing journalists after paying Sallah homage to Mr Buhari in Daura on Friday, saying the APC led government met “some difficulties on ground.”
He said the All Progressives Congress government led by Mr Buhari came to power promising to tackle insecurity, corruption and pursue economic prosperity for the country. But “security is still terrible.”
“We came on the mantra of security, anti-corruption and economy and if you want to be objective we are not where we were,” Mr Gbajabiamila said.
“The security is still very terrible. But Boko Haram has been decimated. Their leader has been killed, those who foment trouble have been arrested.”
Blaming successive governments, the Speaker argued that the APC led government inherited some difficulties which they are working to surmount.
“I think we are on course. It is difficult, don’t get me wrong, we met some difficulties on ground and we are working and building slow and surely,” Mr Gbajabiamila said.
Spokesperson to the president, Garba Shehu, had in April blamed the Nigerian media for reporting insecurity in the country like something new just to rubbish the government of Mr Buhari.
“There is a determination by some people to make security their narrative that will lead to next election, 2023. We are sad. We are not happy that people are killing each other. But the way reporting is done is to suggest that it had never happened before,” Mr Shehu said.
