FG to Nigerians: Insecurity will end in December

Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola has reassured Nigerians that the nation’s security challenges would end in December this year.

He, however, challenged citizens to assist security agents to achieve the target by reporting suspicious activities that could complicate the country’s security situation.

Recalling that President Muhammadu Buhari gave the December deadline for the security forces to restore order and stability in the country, Aregbesola said that he believes that the security agents were not resting on their oars.

The minister said: “He (Buhari) gave the deadline of total elimination of the 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 the 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 added that the government was doing its best to secure Nigeria’s over 5,000-kilometre borderline and complete the digitization of passport processing.
