President Muhammadu Buhari has assured that his administration would do everything possible to address the security challenges facing the country, expressing his wish not to leave the government “as a failure”.
Buhari gave his assurance yesterday, during the National Security Meeting at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The National Security Adviser (NSA), Major-General Babagana Monguno (rtd), who briefed State House correspondents after the meeting, said the President expressed happiness over the success recorded so far by the security agencies in the fight against insurgents, bandits, kidnappers and other criminals in various part of the country.
Monguno said the President also expressed his readiness to make more changes in the security architecture of the country if necessary.
The NSA, who said the president told the meeting that he will continue to make changes if not satisfied, added that all the issues brought before the President centered mainly on the successes recorded in the operations in the North-East.
According to him, large numbers of Boko Haram are surrendering in the North-East owing to the relentless activity of the security agencies, noting that never had such large numbers left the terrorist camp.
Monguno added that the president was happy about the synergy and intelligence-sharing among the armed forces.
