President Muhammadu Buhari, on Monday lamented that the sudden passing of the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Ibrahim Attahiru and others have drawn the country’s fight against terror backward.
The President said this when he welcomed a delegation of the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF), led by the Chairman of the Forum, Mr. Kayode Fayemi.
The former Major General said that only God knows why the plane crashed, and that he will continue doing everything trusting God to help end insecurity.
His words: “This is a situation that only God knows when it will happen and it happened at a time when the security situation in the country is a fundamental issue.
“And to lose choice officers has increased our problem but we know what we are in for and we will continue to work hard and pray hard so that God will give us the power to appreciate and apply ourselves to the problem.
“The people who elected us, they know the promises we made within the time…the circumstances which we find ourselves…we will keep on trying and continue to do our best.”
