President Muhammadu Buhari has said his administration would do everything necessary to handle the incapacitating security crisis assailing it from all fronts.

The president’s affirmation was communicated in an explanation by the National Security Adviser (NSA), Maj.- Gen. Babagana Monguno (retd.) after Friday’s crucial National Security Council meeting.

Monguno said the president Buhari convened the crucial meeting because of his concerns for the persistent and escalating violent and bloody activities of terrorists, bandits and other shades of criminals, but gave the assurance that the country “will overcome the current myriad of crises.”

The NSA said further that the president had vowed “there shall be no relenting in the current search for peace and security until the target is achieved.”

He said, “Concerned about the persisting security challenges in parts of the country, Mr. President summoned a crucial meeting of the National Security Council today as he continues to frontally confront the situation in the country.

“At today’s meeting the president made it abundantly clear that while the insurgents, bandits and criminals are still at it, he has no doubt that the Nigerian security agencies and all of us as a nation will certainly overcome all the current security problems and defeat the forces of evil marauding about in different parts of the country.

“While the criminals continue to test the will of the federal government, the president and the Council, which adjourned today’s critical meeting until Tuesday morning, to receive further briefings from the security chiefs, are set and determined to decisively end the assault on the nation and will do all that it takes.

“Mr. President is very prepared to take profound measures in the wider interest of the people and the Nigerian nation. There shall be no relenting until peace and security is significantly restored in our communities.”

Those who attended the meeting were: Vice President Yemi Osinbajo; Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Mr. Boss Mustapha; the Chief of Staff to the President, Prof. Ibrahim Gambari and Monguno.
