Insecurity: Nigeria Has Found A Partner In Turkey, Says Garba Shehu

The Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to President Buhari, Garba Shehu, has said that as Nigeria continues to make efforts to battle insecurity, the country has found a partner in Turkey.

Mr Shehu said this while giving some insight into the gains from President Muhammadu Buhari’s just-concluded trip from Istanbul.

“At the center of all of the President’s engagements in Turkey is the issue securing of Nigerians and making Nigeria safe,” he said.

President Buhari returned from Istanbul on Sunday evening after a three-day summit.

His return coincided with reports of the gruesome killing of at least 38 persons in various communities in Giwa Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

While the President has condemned the killing and assured people of the state of intensified security in the area, his aide has also assured Nigerians of improved security following its new partnership with Turkey.

“Turkey with their experience in weapons manufacturing and technology and all of that, they’ve handled matters that we are dealing with for a long time so there’s a lot we can learn from them and from the engagements, it is clear that we have got that partner that we needed that would help Nigeria.

“They are donating equipment, we are buying some and we hope that as soon as we go into the new year, some activities will start”.

The area of trade and investment is not excluded, as the President’s aide also said a number of investors are coming into the country soon.
