The minister of Information of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Lai Mohammed has claimed that the nation is safer today than it is in the year 2015.
Mohammed made the disclosure in Washington DC, USA, during an interview with the Voice of America (VOA), NAN reports.
The minister noted that, by and large, the administration had performed well in addressing insecurity and the country is safer than it was in 2015.
Specifically, he said the government had successfully secured the entire territory of the country from Boko Haram while the farmers/herdsmen clash in Benue had been curtailed.
In his speech while speaking about the banditry situation in Zamfara State and other part of the country, he has assured the citizens that the government will keep working to ensure a calm situation.
The minister also said that the administration has made progress in economic recovery, with deliberate programmes for diversifying the economy through agriculture and other sectors as well as developing infrastructure.
He also spoke on the election, saying the victory of the re-elected President, Muhammadu Buhari was well deserved, adding that he won the election fair and square.
He said having delivered on his electoral promises, the people voted for Buhari and he won the elections fairly and squarely with about four million votes.
Mohammed said with the wide margin of winning, the government did not envisage any attempt to delegitimize the will of the people.
