However, NEF has said that insecurity in the north is worse under Buhari, according to its Chairman Ango Abdullahi.

He regretted that Buhari is not doing enough to tame the rising level of insecurity in the country.

“I don’t understand what the reaction from the Presidency is expected to convey to the public,” he told Punch.

“They (Presidency) should be concerned that the security failures are everywhere, including the hometown of the President.

“Obviously, there is more insecurity in the North today than during Jonathan’s leadership.”
