Osinbajo, however, said that more needed to be done to contain the growing level of insecurity in Nigeria. He said that the country would need to recruit more people into the armed forces and procure more security gadgets.
“We are also looking at Armoured Personnel Carrier. Security is central in everything we are doing in this government because without security… but I believe that every government has its challenges.
“The challenge of this particular government is security because we are opening up everywhere. We have opened up the North-East and containing the insecurity there. The same with the North-West; we are also handling the cases of violence going on everywhere including in the South East and the South-South.
