The presidency through Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant, Media, and Publicity, has stated that security challenges in the country had been pre-existing before the current administration took over power, hence it would not accept the security collapse being ascribed solely to it.
He further stressed that the government has been finding ways to end the challenges, adding that the North Central and Niger Delta region are have become peaceful as a result of the efforts being made.
Shehu, who was being interviewed on Channels TV’s Sunday Politics, stated, “We are in total disagreement with the assumptions of the collapse of security in the country.
“The government is on top of the security situation in the country because we have calmed down North Central and Niger Delta.
“Security challenges have been present before the present administration came to office. We have met our own challenges and we are dealing with them as decisive as we can.”
