He added that of course the security problem in the country will be solved like the Boko Haram issue which is now seen as a ‘toothless dog’.
The majority have been pointing fingers at the president and his administration over this matter of not doing enough to solve the problem.
Osinbajo, however, maintained that the president was focused on maintaining peace in the country the same way it brought down the Boko Haram menace.
Read his post below:
“Yesterday, at the National Security Summit, I spoke on the administration’s response to the Herdsmen and Farmer clashes. “I do not know of any one issue that has given President Buhari more concern or on which he has spent more time with Security Chiefs, as this particular issue.
“It is important to make clear, that no one is giving land to anyone, as is being falsely alleged. Instead, it is our view that States that are willing and which have set aside land for development should cooperate with willing investors in commercially viable, government-supported ranches or livestock production centres for commercial use.
“In 2015, when the Buhari administration took office, much of Northern Eastern Nigeria lay beneath the palpable shadow of the terrorist group. In the two and half years since then, our military has done a remarkable job, reclaiming Nigerian territory, rescuing tens of thousands of civilians, and routing Boko Haram. Today the group is a shadow of itself, forced to resort to cowardly suicide bombings and other attacks on soft targets in a desperate bid at attention-seeking.”
In the previous report, Nigeria news had reported that Senate holds security summit on Thursday, February 8 in Abuja.
