Buhari vows to shock arsonists, killers, secessionist

President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday commented on the worsening insecurity in the country and the recurrent attacks on the assets of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The President assured Nigerians that concerted efforts will be made to ensure that the attacks do not affect the conduct of 2023 general elections.

He spoke on the backdrop of several attacks on the offices and other assets of the electoral commission in the Southeast by gunmen.

Buhari lamented that the attacks were orchestrated to make his administration fail.

The President, who clarified that he does not harbour any third term ambition, said elections will hold for peaceful transfer of power in 2023.

President Buhari, however, warned those bent on destroying the country through insurrection and destruction of critical national assets that a rude shock awaited them very soon.

He said: “I receive daily security reports on the attacks, and it is very clear that those behind them want this administration to fail.”

“Insecurity in Nigeria is now mentioned all over the world. All the people who want power, whoever they are, you wonder what they really want. Whoever wants the destruction of the system will soon have the shock of their lives. We’ve given them enough time.”
