Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture, has stated that no president will declare no banditry next year.
This was remarked by Lai Mohammed in response to a query on whether the current security challenges would be resolved before President Muhammadu Buhari’s term ends in 2023.
At a news conference on Wednesday, December 15, Lai Mohammed responded to the question by saying:
“Nobody, I’m not sure any president will say by next year there will be no banditry. It is just like saying by next year, there will be no thief.
“But what is important is that they should judge us by our achievement. We’ve not thrown our hands in the air. There was a time they asked us to hire mercenaries, but our soldiers are doing their best in these circumstances.”
