Buhari will end insecurity by December – Minister of Interior, Aregbesola

Rauf Aregbesola, the Minister of Interior, has given assurance to Nigerians that the security challenges the country is facing will come to an end by December.

The minister made this revelation while featuring on the News in Abuja, the country’s capital.

Aregbesola recalls that President Muhammadu Buhari had mandated the Nigerian security agents to restore peace and normalcy in all parts of the country by December.

The minister also recalled that the president has vowed not to leave the country without putting an end to the security challenges.

“He gave the deadline of total elimination of such threat to the security of lives and property by December.

“I believe that nobody is resting in all the arms of government with the mandate of maintaining law and order, guaranteeing security and eliminating threats.

“We are at it, and in the first instance, we must ask ourselves, governance is about ensuring security of lives and properties.

“We will eliminate all insecurity issues by December.

“If you look at the state of affairs in Nigeria, I’ll tell you that a whole lot of progress had been made over the years, ” he said.

Aregbesola also told newsmen Nigerians were living in fear before 2015, because there were serial bombings everywhere.

“There was a time when the northeastern part of the country was a daily record of one dastardly act or the other and the entire region was under siege of the insurgents.

“To God be the glory, that today it is no longer there and lives had since returned to the region, that people even want to forget that there was a theatre of blood chilling insurgency,” he said.

“Militancy in the southeastern part of the country, and South-South, cultism, in the South West; but by and large, we have tamed considerably the level, the incidences and the threats to lives and property in Nigeria.

“However, we could do better no doubt, and that is why the President has given us all in the security arm of government the deadline.

“We are all now up on our heels and toes addressing vigorously such threats and I can assure us all that we will get there.

“Nigerians will definitely heave a sigh of relief at the end of the day,” the interior minister said.
