I will not leave office as failure, Buhari assures Nigerians


President Muhammadu Buhari assured Nigerians that he will not not leave office as a failure.

The President made the pronouncement on Thursday when he met with Service Chiefs at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

Briefing State House Correspondents after the meeting, the National Security Adviser, Major Gen. Babagana Monguno (rtd said, “The President made it very clear that he’s not ready to exit government as a failure.

“He has  made changes and he is ready to make further changes if he is not satisfied”. 

“He is completely determined to ensure that there is a turnaround in the fortunes in the theatre of operations.”

He stressed that, the meeting with the service chiefs bordered mainly on success recorded by the military in the fight against insurgents.         

According to Monguno a lot of successes have been recorded, considering the large number of insurgents that were surrendering in the Northeast.

“Large numbers of people are surrendering in the North East as a consequence of the relentless efforts of the Armed Forces, intelligence and security agencies”.

“We’ve never had such large numbers of people defecting from the other side back to the Nigerian side, mainly as a result of many issues within the theatre, issues of infighting among the various factions of the terrorist groups”.

He commended the Armed Forces, the police and the intelligence agencies for their giant efforts in the fight against insurgents and bandits.
