President Muhammadu Buhari has appealed to Nigerians to help his administration expose criminals in their community so the government can attract investors to Nigeria.
The President made this statement when he addressed Nigerians in a “Special Interview” aired on the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) on Monday, May 27.
This online news platform understands that President Buhari addressed many issues including insecurity, the economy, judiciary, the 2019 general elections among others.
“My message to Nigerians is that they should help expose the criminals in their community to help the government attract investors to the country,” President Buhari urged Nigerians.
Asked by the interviewer what he thought about the problem of kidnapping for ransom which was frequent in the country, President Buhari said: “Those who are committing atrocities against communities, against the state and the country came from somewhere in Nigeria. Their neighbours know them, and we have politicians and rulers; the police are in the front line.
“We have the police in every major town and city in this country and I said they were not given the uniform and rifles to impress anybody, but to secure the people.
“I think the community leadership and the police have failed this country,” the President added.
