The Federal Government has assured Nigerians that their security remains a priority in this present administration.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Mr. Lai Mohammed who made this known in Abuja on Sunday assured the public that the Government has put in place adequate security measures to stop any terrorist attack in Abuja and the country at large.
He also said that there was no cause for alarms as security agencies have not let their guards down, also reminding them that there has been no terrorist attack in Abuja since the President assumed office in 2015.
In a statement signed by his aide, Segun Adeyemi, the minister said “We know that the terrorists who have been massively degraded and put on the run have been looking for soft targets to attack.
“That is the nature of terrorism all over the world as can be seen in recent attacks in the UK, France and Egypt among others.
“That is why the Nigerian security agencies have continued to be on alert, even if their efforts have been largely unobtrusive so as not to disrupt the daily activities of the citizenry. Such efforts are routinely stepped up during religious festivals” he said.
BigPen Online also reports that the minister announced the stepping up of the sensitization campaign on security, in a program termed; “If you see something, say something” on national radio and television and appealed to Nigerians to be security conscious and to promptly report suspicious people and objects noticed in their surroundings to the security agencies, he said.
