In a statement forwarded to DAILY POST by Garba Shehu, Buhari stated this in a message to Nigerians shortly after performing the Eid prayers with his family and aides at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.


Buhari said while much had been achieved security wise, from the situation he inherited in 2015, more still needed to be done.

He said considering the security situation on ground when he came to office,

“Nigerians know that we have done our best. However, what is coming out of the North West and North Central is very disturbing.”

“We are making available resources to them to even do better,”

“from the reports I am getting, they could do much better. But we are keeping them on the alert all the time to do their duties.”
