The President of the federal republic of Nigeria Muhammadu Buhari said his regime had done its best as far as fighting members of the Boko Haram sect and insurgency in the North East and militants in the South-South was concerned.
The president spoke in an interview that he granted State House correspondents after joining his family members and some top government officials to observe the Eid El-Kabir prayers inside the Presidential Villa, Abuja, today.
Buhari claims that he has done his possible best in the fight against insurgency and militancy came two days after insurgents attacked the convoy of Babagana Zulum, the Borno State Governor.
Zulum was said to be on routine inspection when his convoy was attacked by suspected members of Boko Haram between Baga and Munguno on Wednesday.
Just yesterday multiple explosions from mortars fired by suspected Boko Haram members hit Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, leaving dozens injured.
But Mr. President said his regime inherited the security challenges from the previous administration, and he has done his very best in fighting insurgency in the country
