President Muhammadu Buhari has come out to say that there will be more resources to tackle insecurity in Nigeria.

He revealed this after performing the Eid prayers with his family and aides at the forecourt of the State House, Abuja on Friday.

According to him, even if much has been achieved security wise since he took over as president, more work still has to be done to improve the situation in the country.

He added that what is coming out of the North West and North Central is very disturbing and he’ll do everything possible to make the nation safer for citizens.

His words, “Nigerians know that we have done our best.

“However, what is coming out of the North West and the 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.”

“This is why we put the commission (of investigation) in place. There has been abuse of trust by people trusted by the previous administration and this administration.”
