Bashir Ahmad, the personal assistant of President Buhari on New Media has reacted to the security situation in North East, which he claimed the Nigerian President made better.
According to Bashir Ahmad, the security situation in North East is not same way it was before President Buhari got elected. He tweeted;
This is not politics, look at the war against insurgency, is the situation in the North East the same as it used to be before PMB came? Of course NO, there is relative security in the region. In 2019, the people will definitely vote for an administration that made that possible.
This is coming after the Federal Government, stated that the security report coming from North-eastern Nigeria is worrisome. The Minister of Defence, Mansur Dan-Ali, stated this when he briefed journalists at the end of a meeting of security chiefs with President Muhammadu Buhari.
Mr Dan-Ali said the meeting was a routine security briefing with Mr Buhari, and an update of the August 2 meeting held before the president’s departure to London for vacation. At the meeting, President Muhammadu Buhari directed security chiefs in the country to step up their game, an official said after the almost three hours meeting.
“The decision that has been taken is that we have seen that there is a lot of improvement in the security situation in the country more especially in Zamfara and Benue state and in the Niger Delta,” Mr Dan-Ali said.
“In the North-east, we are having worrisome report, we have looked into it critically and we have taken absolute decision,” he said without elaborating on the “absolute decisions” taken.
