The Presidency has stated that security chiefs have never complained of lack of weapons when meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.
Speaking on Channels TV, The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, insisted that Nigeria’s security agencies are well equipped.
He warned that those making allegations against the government concerning the killings in some parts of Nigeria are not helping the situation.
“Yes talking of those allegations, I hear them, I see them. I see videos. [These allegations are coming from] people that you think should know [better]; people that you think are well educated; people that you think are large-minded enough but they are still operating from small prisms of ethnic consciousness and making wide allegations about security in the country. They are not helping the situation,” Femi Adesina said.
“But it’s a democracy. They can say whatever they want to say it doesn’t mean what they’re saying is founded or true but they should realise that when they make those wild allegations, those things are not good for the country.
“Those who are working on security are working and we must team up with them to find lasting solutions to these plaques.
“Today at the security meeting a lot was said about procurement and security agencies did not complain of equipment. Yes additional equipment are coming in from Jordan, China, United States but the complaint was not majorly about equipment.
“The military is well equipped. [Although] nothing spent on security is ever too much because every other thing revolves around security.”
