President Muhammadu Buhari says Nigerians need to put their differences aside and work together to have a secure nation.

President Buhari disclosed this on Thursday, January 30, when the 2019 National Productivity Order of Merit (NPOM) Awardees paid him a visit in Abuja.

The president explained that Nigerian economy will be prosperous when the citizens are productive.

He, however, asked the youths to emulate NPOM awardees by working together to build the Nigeria of expectations.

Earlier, The Herald reported that presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina, defended the statement made by President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday, over the issue of security in the country.

According to Adesina, the president’s statement was unduly misinterpreted by the general public and that President Buhari is “fully aware” and “in charge” of the situation.

President Buhari on Monday, during the visit of some delegates from Niger State, had said;

“I was taken aback by what is happening in the north-west and other parts of the country. During our campaigns, we knew about the Boko Haram. What is coming now is surprising.”

His statement spurred an uproar of reactions which propelled the senate minority leader, Enyinnaya Abaribe, to request the resignation of the President.

Explaining the statement, Adesina said President Buhari’s statement only inferred that he was surprised about the emergence of banditry in the north-west, a region “almost homogeneous, made up of Hausa-Fulani and largely Muslim”.

“The reportage of the statement above was slanted to mean that President Buhari said he was unaware of the security challenges in some parts of the country.

Far from it, except to the mischievous mind. The President is fully aware and fully in charge of all that is going on,” Adesina said.
