‘Nigerians Deserve To Live In Peace’ – President Buhari Urges Security Agencies To Step Up Their Efforts

President Buhari has reiterated his demand for the security agencies to step up their efforts to combat anyone who is attempting to undermine Nigeria’s sovereignty or create insecurity through criminality in whatever form.

Rauf Aregbesola, the Minister of Interior, made the announcement following a Security Council meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday at the Aso Villa in Abuja. The meeting, which spanned more than four hours, also reviewed the rise of criminal activity along the Abuja-Kaduna Highway, he informed State House media.

“The President said that we are not yet where we should be; that Nigerians deserve to live in peace. We appreciate the fact that we are in the season of festivity.

So, all agencies – committed to providing security for Nigerians and the maintenance of law and order – have been ordered to improve on their activities, intensify surveillance, and minimise if not eliminate totally any threat, and you will see an improved response to all those challenging the sovereignty of Nigeria in whatever form and creating insecurity in whatever form anywhere.”he said

According to Aregbesola, President Buhari has directed security agencies to increase surveillance, patrol, and pursuit of criminals in order to eradicate any threat to the country’s law and order.

“The Council today (Thursday) took a firm decision on what is to be done and I can assure Nigerians that with the charge from the President and the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, there will be an improved response to all forms of criminality in any part of Nigeria,” the minister said
