President Muhammadu Buhari and General Buratai

The Progressive Yoruba Youth Congress (PYYC) has praised President Muhammadu Buhari and Army Chief, Lt Gen. Tukur Buratai for tackling security threats in the country.

The Nigeria Army had said the country faced over 14 various security threats, ranging from terrorism, militancy, kidnapping, among others.

Speaking to newsmen, the President of PYYC, Hon Desmond Abiona said Buhari and the Army have demonstrated capacity in handling the security situation in Nigeria.

He said the choices of the President in appointing his security chiefs played critical role in the fight against terrorism and other security threats.

Abiona said: “It is common knowledge that security was the biggest challenge for Nigeria before President Muhammadu Buhari came into office.

”The worst form of the insecurity that bedeviled the nation was the insurgency being waged by Boko Haram as a terrorist group.

”Its reign of terror was such that people had expected that the whole of Nigeria would have been under sustained attacks from the terrorists by now.

“There were also militant groups and separatists that those wishing to destroy Nigeria have primed to replace Boko Haram.

”To the glory of God and to the credit of President Buhari, these threats have all been managed and Nigeria’s integrity maintained.

”It must be acknowledged that this remarkable feat was no accident even when it has God’s blessing written all over it.”
