Amotekun hails Buhari’s performance in tackling insecurity


The Southwest security outfit, Amotekun says President Muhammadu Buhari has performed excellently well in tackling insecurity in the country.

The Osun State Commander, Brig.-Gen. Bashir Adewinmbi, (rtd), who stated this on Thursday in Osogbo, told newsmen that the Buhari administration had provided needed support to relevant security agencies to discharge their duties.

“Before we assess President Buhari’s contribution to providing solutions to the insecurity in Nigeria, we need to identify the challenges of Boko Haram insurgency.

“Farmers-herdsmen clashes, Islamic Movement of Nigeria (Shiite), Niger Delta Militants, Cyber Security Challenges, Kidnapping, among others.

“Looking at all these security challenges, President Buhari has done well by empowering and providing the needed support to the relevant security agencies and MDAs to tackle them.

“The Nigerian Army, Navy and Air Force have been structured to handle all the security challenges which had led to several successful counter operations in the affected areas.

“Farmers-herders clashes had reduced drastically due to good governance in the affected states, particularly in the South West geopolitical zone where peaceful coexistence between farmers and herdsmen exists now.”

The Amotekun security commander added that the President had also provided necessary policies and actions that mitigated insecurity in Nigeria.

“In the area of terrorism and insecurity, which are largely brought about by bad governance, poverty, weak judicial system, corruption, unemployment, poor security system, porous border and ethnic group and religious differences, President Buhari has performed very well in tackling them.

“The President has provided necessary policies and actions that have mitigated insecurity in Nigeria.

“He has recorded huge success in human and infrastructure development, leadership development, good governance.

“Reduction of corruption, building a proactive law enforcement agency, provision of security training and equipment, including reviewing electoral laws that will further democracy in Nigeria.” he added
