President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday said his administration has done its best in ending Boko Haram in the North-East and Militancy in the South-South.
The President, however, acknowledged that Security Agencies “could do much better” in curbing insecurity in the North-East and North-Central.
He made the comments to reporters after attending a Sallah service in Abuja.
“I wish Nigerians the best of luck,” he said in respect of the Eid-al-Adha marked nationwide on Friday. “We want security, prosperity, and the wellbeing of all Nigerians.
“I want Nigerians to be very conscious of their country. What we inherited when we came around in 2016 was Boko Haram in the North East and the militants in the South-South. Nigerians know that we have done our best.
“What is coming up in North West and North Central is disturbing indeed. But I believe the military and the police and other law enforcement agencies, I think they could do much better, but we are keeping them on the alert to do their duties.”

Npower graduates cried out on the street of Abuja in a short protest just to be employed in order to provide positive service towards National growth and increase on National productivity but was denied these right as law-abiding graduates and national citizens .
Regretfully to hear on national TV this very morning the graduation of over 601 Boko Haram terrorist who will now be gainfully employed and well treated after wasting innocent lives and destruction which has contributed immensely the backwardness of our national social economy development and with my eyes full with tears this afternoon as I sit on my bench in front of my one-room apartment thinking of such happenings ,I must say this isn't democracy by practice or neither is it a fair leadership idea towards its citizens .
The system lacks transparency and accountability and as a matter of fact it lacks the attributes of a developing nation.
One will begin to wonder if crime now pay far better than being a lawful citizen ,I mean the Government should make it's citizens see a way forward .
Should we all go into crime in order to be given equal treatment and to be paid amnesty ?
Our present day Government does not give listening ears to pressure groups , civil societies ,protest or neither do they respond to the needs of the poor masses and this is totally wrong .
The Npower graduates deserves better rewards like permanency .it is not as if Nigeria has reached its peak of development that it no longer needs human labour as workforce that these youths has to be disengaged from their respective services .
My biggest question over the disengagement issue is whether the government are ending crime and poverty, or they are increasing it .
Sincerely speaking ,the issue of embracing criminals all in the name of a spoken repentance is questionable because no Nation negotiate with terrorist which is a true national integrity .
The Npower youths after being disengage then how will this contribute in the pursue of ending crime and unemployment?
Let these youths be given jobs into the military and paramilitary which has the national defence top secret files and not giving such jobs to repented book Haram that will later be giving out top intelligent files to its members secretly .
If militants amnesty is still ongoing after over 12 years ,then why can't we retain these graduates ?
I am using this opportunity to plead with the federal government to give this opportunity to these Npower beneficiaries as a bid to end insecurity in the country .
