‘It’s tough times for Nigerians’ – NSA Nuhu Ribadu admits


The National Security Adviser, NSA, Nuhu Ribadu on Thursday admitted that things are tough for Nigerians.

Ribadu, however, noted that by saying the truth about the situation, things will get better.

He spoke at the ongoing 19th Annual Nigerian Editors Conference in Uyo, Akwa-Ibom State.

According to Ribadu: “It’s tough times and that is the reality. We are not condemning anyone but that is the truth.

“Those who are in charge must say the truth, say it as it is, and then hopefully things will be better for you.”

Ribadu also urged Nigerians to be patient with President Bola Tinubu over the high level of insecurity in Nigeria.

He stressed that there has been a lot of improvement in the security situation in the country.

“We are all in this together, as a National Security Adviser, you want to hear about national security. We have been there about five months a few days into the office. We have given Nigeria to President Bola Tinubu to manage it for us.

“In the last five months, I have been there by his side and have seen how things were and how things are when we started, and hopefully the direction we are going is okay,” he added.
