President Muhammadu Buhari has noted that the activities of Niger Delta militants and Boko Haram insurgents hindered his government from serving the country right.
Buhari said this on Wednesday in Abuja at the All Progressives Congress (APC) held at the Eagle Square.
According to him, “When we came, the price of crude from over $100 average, went down to $37 and $38 and then the militants were unleashed on this administration but we have all now overcome those difficulties.
“I want to remind everybody where the country was before we came in in May 2015 where we are now and what we have been able to do with the resources available to us.
“You residents of Abuja know a lot about our three fundamental campaign aspirations security, economy and fighting corruption.
He added that “In security, the people of the northeast and the people of Abuja can know much better.
“Boko Haram were holding more than 17 local governments in the northeast when we came, they are not holding any local government now.
“But what they are doing is indoctrinating young men and women, wrap them up with explosives and send them to soft targets, mosques,marketplaces, motor parks and so on.
“And then, we had the problem of herders and stagnant farmers in Benue state, which we have looked after it.
“The problem of people who are just looking for trouble and they find something from you, especially in Zamfara state. Those two are being looked after by the security agencies.”
