President Muhammadu Buhari’s marching order to the service chiefs, according to Minister of Information Lai Mohammed, is now showing results.
Speaking on Tuesday, August 30, at a two-day National Conference on Culture, Peace, and National Security organized by the National Institute for Cultural Orientation (NICO), Mohammed revealed that the federal government had sent two bills to the National Assembly on the transmission of explosives as well as the control of small arms and light weapons. Mohammed was represented by Memunat Idu-lah, Director, International Cultural Relations.
“The military has recorded successes in neutralising the activities of bandits, terrorists, kidnappers, and other forms of criminality across the country.
“Also, the present administration is having constructive and meaningful engagement with member states of ECOWAS, and other regional blocks to decisively tackle insecurity in Nigeria.”
Lai Mohammed also claimed that skewed reporting, as well as the phenomenon of fake news, hate speech, and misinformation had contributed to the worsening security situation in Nigeria.
