President Muhammadu Buhari has called on Nigerians, particularly those in the North-East states, to be more vigilant and ready to work with security operatives in ending the war against insurgency. This is contained in a statement issued in Abuja on Sunday by the president’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu. The statement said President Buhari was reacting to the spate of suicide bombings in Chibok market, Dolari Internally Displaced Person’s (IDP) camp in Borno, and the Gombi market in Adamawa.

The federal government on Monday said that “weapons that were procured by the Jonathan administration for the military to prosecute the war against insurgency were substandard and could not have been responsible for the string of successes recorded by the military in recent times”.
In a statement issued in Abeokuta, capital of Ogun state, Lai Mohammed, minister of information and culture, described as “unfortunate and unsubstantiated the statement credited to former President Goodluck Jonathan attributing the recent successes in the war to the weapons allegedly bought by his administration that were delivered after he had left office”.
“This country has practically what it takes to run a solid economy that is not dependent on oil, but on business and commerce,” the Vice President said today during a meeting with a group of international investors looking to invest in the country in the light of the new administration.
According to Prof. Osinbajo, the President has already given the mandate to ensure that a conducive environment is created for business investments in the country, and he added that work has already started with government looking at the different aspects involved.
