President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday warned of tougher security measures in restive parts of the country, with the review of operations and strategy.
Buhari reassured Nigerians that the efforts that resulted in relative peace in South-South, and rescuing of the North-East from the hold of terrorists would be ramped up.
Speaking at a meeting of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC), the President noted that major security challenges have remained in the North Central and North West, saying, “We are going to be very tough.’’
“I will like us to reflect on what the situation was before we came in. How many Local Government Areas were under the control of terrorists in the North-East?
“In the South-South, we all know what the situation was, now we have relative peace. With the resources at our disposal, we have done very well.
“People are very forgetful. Our main problem now is in the North West and North Central. People are killing one another in these places, what for? We are going to be very tough,’’ he said.
