President Muhammadu Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has reacted to the concerns over the planned withdrawal of military presence from some communities in the Northeast.

“Let me reassure Nigerians that the planned withdrawal of the military from areas where peace has been restored will be gradual and carefully planned. It will not be abrupt or arbitrary; will not be carried out in a manner that will expose communities to a greater risk of attacks,” the President tweeted on his handle, @Mbuhari on Saturday morning.

“There is, therefore, no cause for alarm, regarding the planned withdrawal. We will not do anything to jeopardise the successes already recorded by the military. We will not expose any part of Nigeria to harm or danger,” he added.

He explained that “the withdrawal is to allow the military to focus on its primary duty of defending the nation against external aggression. It is the duty of the police to handle internal security since Nigeria is not at war”.

He added that “the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps will support the police to provide internal security”.

 

Let me reassure Nigerians that the planned withdrawal of the military from areas where peace has been restored will be gradual and carefully planned. It will not be abrupt or arbitrary; will not be carried out in a manner that will expose communities to greater risk of attacks.
