He explained that his government continues to reposition as well as strengthen the security agencies so that the agencies are able to deal with all forms of security challenges.


According to him: “At the start of this administration in 2015, (Buhari) provided the funding requirements of the security agencies. The funding was also improved in his second tenure in 2019. This was done to enable them to face security challenges. 

“We will continue on this path until our efforts yield the desired results”, He stated.
