President Muhammadu Buhari has said he is committed to putting an end to all issues that bring sorrow to Nigerians.
The Nigerian president was said to have made the statement on Thursday, May 14, during a closed-door meeting with members of the national security council, Premium Times reports.
The National Security Adviser (NSA), Babagana Monguno, told reporters after the meeting that Buhari promised to improve efforts in ensuring the safety of lives and properties of citizens.
“He (Buhari) is also committed to spending whatever resources he has at his disposal to bring to a quick end to all the issues affecting Nigerians and bringing a lot of sorrows to Nigerians. That is the most important takeaway from today’s meeting,” Moguno said.
According to Vanguard newspaper, the national security adviser said the president reassured Nigerians that he will redouble his effort in ensuring that the primary responsibility of the government to ensure the safety of lives and property is realised.
Babagana Monguno disclosed that the security meeting focused on possible areas where the nation needs urgent attention and possible solutions.
Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari has again condemned the wave of attacks and counterattacks on people among the Fulani and Adara communities in Kajuru local government area of Kaduna state.
The president added that the recourse to self-help, instead of the law of the land is the real cause of the killings and counter killings between the two communities.
The president warned that no person has the right to take the law in his or her own hands.
There have been massive killings in Southern Kaduna for a while now, while locals blame the state and the federal government of not addressing the issue.
Many also think the government's description of the incident as a revenge attack is not correct.
In another report, the Kaduna Peace Advancement Network ( KSPAN) on Wednesday, May 13, issued a warning to all the bandits in the state to surrender to military authorities.
The group's warning followed a recent onslaught against bandits by troops of the Nigerian military.
According to the KSPAN, it is either the bandits surrender or suffers th
e same fate as Boko Haram terrorists in the northeast.
The group, in a statement signed by its national coordinator, Hassan Abu, on Wednesday, April 13, advised the criminal elements to submit themselves to the military.
