“As we speak, he is meeting with his service chiefs on how to enhance security in the country. You know that when there is security, there will be development. When there is security, you can guarantee that the economy will grow; when there is security, we can face our business and business can strive.
“So, whatever it will take to secure the country, President Muhammadu Buhari will do along with other people in government.”
