President Buhari has blamed banditry and terrorism in Nigeria on the political instability in Libya.


Buhari said his administration was making efforts towards tackling banditry and terrorism in Nigeria.


He spoke while receiving the letters of credence from the new Canadian High Commissioner to Nigeria, Ambassador James Kingston Christoff and Ambassador of Mexico to Nigeria, Juan Alfred Miranda Oritz, at the State House in Abuja, on Tuesday.


The President also urged the international communities to collaborate with Nigeria in tackling insecurity.


He disclosed that his administration had made meaningful progress in the fight against insecurity.


Buhari said this effort was possible with the support of friendly countries, including Canada and Mexico.


“The political instability in Libya continues to fuel terrorism in the Sahel, West and Central African regions.


“Nigeria is not left out of the equation as we are fighting to rid our country of banditry, kidnapping, herder/farmer clashes and insurgency.


“We are, however, making meaningful progress with the support of friendly countries like yours to sustain this fight until we overcome these challenges,” he said.


Lately, the activities of banditry increased in Nigeria.


The Northern part of Nigeria has been the most affected by the situation.

  1. Lies from the master liar!!! You brought in your kinsmen (Fulanis) from Senegal, Niger etc to come destroy Nigeria for your 2015 election. You can as well send them back to where they came from.

  2. Fulanis are the one causing terrorism in nigeria not Libya. The porosity of the northern borders for people in Niger and Mali to come into Nigeria. You closed the southern and eastern borders where foodstuffs come in. It is deliberate and you know what you and your people are doing.
