Plateau: I contested to be president 4 times, I can’t complain about security challenges, says Buhari in Jos
President Muhammadu Buhari has said he has the capacity to surmount the insecurity challenges bedeviling Nigeria because he knew of the challenges before vying for the office of President.
Mr. Buhari stated this on Tuesday evening at the government house, while paying condolences to victims of the recent mayhem in Barkinladi, Riyom, and some part of Jos South, which has claimed several lives.
“I contested for this position (presidency) four times before I got it, so I can not complain of the challenges we are facing,” Mr Buhari said.
Mr Buhari said his administration has performed creditably well in curbing security in Nigeria.
“Nobody can say that we haven’t done well in terms of security, we have done our best, but the way this situation is now, we can only pray,” the president said.
He charged leaders to be steadfast. “Leaders at all level must have control over there people in their respective constituencies,” he said.
