On Thursday, Nuhu Ribadu, the National Security Adviser, acknowledged that life is difficult for Nigerians.
However, Ribadu pointed out that things will improve if the matter is addressed honestly.
In Uyo, Akwa-Ibom State, he delivered a speech at the 19th Annual Nigerian Editors Conference.
“It’s tough times and that is the reality,” asserts Ribadu. While we don’t condemn anyone, that is the reality.
“If those in authority speak the truth and present the situation as it is, perhaps things will improve for you.”
In addition, Ribadu asked Nigerians to exercise patience with President Bola Tinubu due to the country’s extreme levels of insecurity.
He emphasized that the nation’s security situation has significantly improved.
As a National Security Adviser, you want to hear about national security because we are all in this together. We have been in the office for a few days over five months now. President Bola Tinubu has been entrusted with the management of Nigeria.
He continued, “Hopefully the direction we are going is okay. I have been by his side for the last five months, witnessing how things were and how they were when we started.”
