President Muhammadu Buhari has described Nigerians as forgetful, saying they have quickly forgotten the security situation in the country before his regime came in.
Buhari became Nigeria’s President in 2015 on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) after making several promises, one of which was to tackle insecurity.
But since he became the President, the insecurity situation which used to be abysmal in the North-East due to the activities of Boko Haram terrorists has spread to all parts of the country.
Kidnapping for ransom has now become a daily affair with reports of killings in the news daily.
However, at the 11th meeting of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the APC on Wednesday in Abuja, the President said his government had done well with the resources at its disposal.
“I will like us to reflect on what the situation was before we came in. How many local government areas were under the control of terrorists in the North-East?
“In the South-South, we all know what the situation was, now we have relative peace. With the resources at our disposal, we have done very well.
“People are very forgetful. Our main problem now is in the North West and North Central. People are killing one another in these places, what for? We are going to be very tough.”
