Nigerians Should Be Grateful to Buhari for Fighting Insecurity - Adesina

“Let’s be thankful for small mercies. Any mercies we receive, let’s be thankful for it, and let’s not dwell on negatives alone.”

Nigerians should be grateful to President Muhammadu Buhari for his fight against insecurity in the country, his spokesperson, Femi Adesina, has said.

Mr Adesina said Mr Buhari has done well in ensuring the security of lives and properties in Nigeria, despite evidence of widespread insecurity in the country.

The presidential aide spoke on Sunday while appearing on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics programme. He explained that like Nigerians, most countries of the world also face security challenges.

Asked whether his principal was winning the war against insecurity, despite the recent happenings in Katsina and many other parts of Nigeria, Mr Adesina responded saying “Yes”.

“Yes, there are times, a week, two weeks even a month that you don’t have all these things happening. There was a time in the immediate past when they happened daily several times. You talked of one bombing within three or four days. There was a time in this country when bombs went off like firecrackers every day.

“There could be five, six bombings in one day. Now, you can have two, three months with no single case of bombing. Let’s be thankful for small mercies. Any mercies we receive, let’s be thankful for it, and let’s not dwell on negatives alone.

“Life is taking the rough and smooth together. So, sometimes we see when things go on for days, for weeks with no negative developments, let us emphasise those ones. We have challenges but these are not the constants in the country.”
