President Muhammadu Buhari has lamented the continuous worsening of the security situation in the North Western part of the nation.
North West states include Jigawa, Kaduna, Kano, Katsina, Kebbi, Sokoto, Zamfara.
Insecurity is persistent in Zamfara, Kaduna and Sokoto states.
Speaking on Thursday at the palace of Sa’ad Abubakar, Sultan of Sokoto, President Buhari noted the security situation in South-South and North-East has improved while that of the North West worsens.
“Every day, we are worried about what is happening in the north-west. When we came, if Nigerians are to be fair to us, they know the condition in the north-east and the south-south, but what is happening now in the north-west is what has honestly overwhelmed me,” Buhari said.
“The same people, the same culture, killing each other, stealing each other’s property. We are going to do our best and the military and law enforcement agencies have been given a clear order that they shouldn’t spare any bandit or terrorist”.
Buhari however promised to ensure security of Nigerian citizens until his time in office as president ends.
“We are going to hand over a secure country better than we inherited it”.
