Presidency Says Buhari Did Not Promise Crime Free Nigeria

The Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, has stated that his principal did not promise a crime-free country during his campaign. He was reacting to criticism following the death of several persons as a result of herdsmen-framers clashes and other security issues.

Speaking to Channels TV, Garba said: “I think that nobody, no politician should try to deceive Nigerians by saying that there is a country without lawlessness.“Even when he campaigned the President, yes, committed to ridding the country of terror but he would never have said that this country would be 100 per cent without criminality.”

The presidential aide also said that the Federal Government is working hard to ensure the safety of the lives and property of Nigerians in all parts of the country.
