Alhaji Lai Mohammed

Federal Government has given an assurance that Nigeria will witness improved security in 2021 across the country.

Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed gave the assurance on Monday while addressing reporters in Lagos.

He stated that President Muhammadu Buhari has continued to provide the military and other security agencies with the required support to function better.

According to the Minister, 2020 was undoubtedly one of the most challenging years for the country, saying it was a result of the global pandemic that triggered an economic recession, a heightened security challenge, and unnecessary violence in the country.

President Muhammadu Buhari said in his New Year broadcast, the security apparatus, as well as military and police personnel, would be re-energised and re-organised, with a view to enhancing their capacity to engage, push back and dismantle the operations of both internal and external extremist and criminal groups waging war against communities in parts of the country.
