President Mohammadu Buahri says it is dishonest to say he sits in an air-conditioned office and home, enjoying myself while killings are happening in some states across the country. The President said this when he received the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria (CBCN), led by Archbishop Ignatius Kaigama. He also said security operatives would ensure prosecution of perpetrators and all those found with illegal arms. The impression created that I was sitting in an air-conditioned office and home, enjoying myself while these things happened is dishonest.At every step, I have tried to foresee these problems because I have the experience as a former military officer who commanded three out of the four divisions of the Nigerian Army – in Lagos, Ibadan and Jos.
‘‘I am quite aware of the problems we have and I am doing my best to get law enforcement agencies to be on the alert,’’ Buhari said. The President added that he would not be tired of recounting remarkable progress recorded security, economy and the fight against corruption. We have done very well on security in the Northeast, when you compare what the condition was before we came in and what it is now. On the economy, particularly agriculture, I am very pleased that God answered the prayers of Nigerians who prayed for bountiful harvest. People have taken advantage of Federal Government policies and programmes to return to the farm and they have not regretted,’’ he said.
