The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, has said that the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has reduced the insecurity challenge he met on the ground in 2015.
Tinubu said this during an interview with BBC, which was published on Tuesday.
Questioned about how he would tackle insecurity, considering it has persisted, Tinubu said, “It has reduced. I will defend him. Then, 17 local governments and about four states where we had flags of foreign jihadists in Nigeria. That is no more. That is long gone.
“To start chaos is easy. To bring normalcy and redecorate is more difficult. Here we are, Buhari has degraded but not completely eliminated ISWAP.
“They will talk briefly of lethal weapons and ammunitions and technology equipment that could have helped with the clean up of those. The West is yet to feel comfortable enough with a Buhari administration to sell us the arms and technology necessary.”
