Ribadu asks Nigerians to be Patient with Tinubu over Security Issues
The National Security Adviser, Nuhu Ribadu has called for more patience from Nigerians on the insecurity still persisting in some parts of the country.
Ribadu said the crisis which Tinubu administration inherited from the previous administration had been prevalent for the past 15 years, and would not disappear overnight.
The National Security Agency (NSA) making the plea on Thursday in Uyo, at the ongoing all Nigerian Editors Conference, said the Tinubu administration was not condemning anyone, but stating the truth.
According to him, the mistake made by previous administrations was allowing the insecurity to be part of the Nigerian system for 15 years.
Ribadu, however, said that Tinubu administration in the past five months had been tackling the inherited security challenges.
He cited the Niger Delta region, where daily crude oil production had scaled up to 1.7 million barrels from 1.1 million in May inherited in June 2023, and that no incident of insecurity had been reported from the region in the past three weeks.
Ribadu also said in the South East region, no police station had been attacked again, compared to 46 as at June.
In the North East region, there has been no report of insecurity in the last five months, while kidnapped victims are being rescued in the North West region.
