Rauf Aregbesola, minister of interior, says tackling insecurity is one of the biggest achievements of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Aregbesola spoke on Monday at the fourth edition of the PMB administration scorecard 2015-2023 series organised by the ministry of information and culture in Abuja.

Aregbesola said the administration has successfully stopped insurgents from building strongholds, occupying territories, and collecting taxes from the people as was the case before 2015.

“There is no insurgency stronghold anymore in Nigeria and that is the biggest achievement as you might want to understand it,” he said.

“Most people conveniently overlook that the fact that at the advent of this administration in 2015, local governments in their numbers were under the occupation of insurgents.

“But today, there is no single inch of Nigerian soil under the control of insurgents.

“This is the biggest achievement in terms of internal security.”

The minister acknowledged that there are still challenges but said they are surmountable.

According to him, there is no nation without its challenges, and the Nigerian government is working hard to address them.

Aregbesola’s comments come days after a report by TheCable showed that a total of 247 people were killed in October in violent attacks across the country.

The report also revealed that 258 people were kidnapped within the same period.
