Senator George Akume, the minister of special duties and intergovernmental affairs, has risen in defence of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Akume said that as at when President Buhari assumed office in 2015, all the sectors in the country were in a mess and the situation of insecurity was even much worse, The Sun reports.
He said that the Buhari-led federal government has been working hard to improve the country's economy and that things have changed for good compared to previous administrations.
Akume said that those criticising the president's regime are doing so with negative motives and purpose.

“You can testify that a lot has been done by this government in that area to stem the tide of insecurity."
