President Muhammadu Buhari says his regime has done its best to curtail the prevailing insecurity situation in almost all parts of the country.


“We have done our best and we will continue to do more by pursuing coherent and consistent policies to deal with terrorism. I hope God will listen to our prayers,” according to Mr Buhari. 

The president stated this during a visit on Friday to the State House, Abuja, by the head of the Tijjaniyya Islamic Movement World-Wide, Tidjani Ali Bin Arabi. 

Mr Arabi was accompanied by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano and Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi, leader of the Tijjaniyya Islamic Movement in Nigeria.

According to the president, the federal government is well aware of its responsibility with regards to security and will continue to do its best.

He urged Nigerians to be fair to his government in assessing insecurity in the country, adding that the Northwest which has given Nigeria “headache” was soon to experience a turnaround.

The president thanked Mr Ganduje for bringing the Islamic leaders to Nigeria “to pray for peace and stability in our country. We are grateful that they agreed to come.”
