National Security Adviser (NSA), Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, says insecurity has reduced across the country since President Bola Ahmed Tinubu took over power.
Ribadu said Tinubu does not make noise over the breakthroughs recorded in the security sector since his assumption of office.
Speaking during the ongoing 19th Annual Nigerian Editors Conference (ANEC) in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State capital, on Thursday, Ribadu said the current administration inherited tough period.
He explained that militancy in the Niger Delta and insecurity in the South East has reduced since Tinubu’s administration came on board, adding that it will get better.
“Let me start with the Niger Delta, at the time we took over, the production of crude oil was 1.1 mbd. Today, crude oil production is over 1.7 mbd.
“We have witnessed three weeks without any incident of security challenge in the Niger Delta. This is the first time since 1993, but we don’t talk.
“In the South East, when we took over last year we had 46 police stations attacked, today we don’t have one single one.
“In the last two months, not a single person had been killed through violent attack in the south east, we don’t talk. The leadership we have in our country do understand things a bit better. Work more, talk less,” he stated.
The NSA said though security has improved in the country, all hands must be on deck to surmount other security challenges.
He said the federal government would continue to do every thing possible to improve on the welfare of its citizens and remain transparent in government business.
