President Muhammadu Buhari says he hopes “God will listen to our prayers”, saying his administration has done it’s best to curb insecurity that has remained unabated since his assumption of office in 2015.

”We have done our best and we will continue to do more by pursuing coherent and consistent policies to deal with terrorism,” the president said during a visit on Friday to the State House, Abuja, by the Grand Khalifa (overall head) of the Tijjaniyya Islamic Movement World-Wide, Tidjani Ali Bin Arabi.

According to the president, the Federal Government is well aware of its responsibility with regards to security and will continue to do its best.

Mr Buhari urged Nigerians to be fair to his government in assessing the security issue in the country by reflecting on what was obtained at the time he took over in 2015, and the successes as well as performance which mark a decisive break from the past.

Particularly, he cited the successes recorded by the administration in the North-East and the South-South, adding that the North-West which had given the nation some “headache” would experience a turnaround for the better.

In January, Babagana Zulum, the governor of insurgency-ravaged Borno state lamented that of swathes of landmass in the northern and southern region of the state are under Boko Haram ISWAP occupation. His alarm was coroborated by the Nigerian senate.

Mr Buhari himself was welcomed into Maiduguri, Borno State capital with rocket blasts by insurgents going off some kilometres away from the airport just before he touched group during a visit in December.

The president urged Nigerians to take responsibility and show interest in the affairs of their security and complement what the government is currently doing.

According to the president, the Federal Government is well aware of its responsibility with regards to security and will continue to do its best.

The president used the opportunity to thank the Kano State governor, who brought the Grand Khalifa to Nigeria.
