President Buhari has opened up on the situation of security in the country describing it as  “undue politicization.”

While receiving promoters of the proposed African Security Leadership Summit at State House on Tuesday in Abuja, , the President said no matter how much the revisionists try to distort history “the records show where we were in terms of security in 2015, where we are now, and we also know where we want to be.”

President Buhari said his successes since assuming office in 2015 is clear “and what remains in areas of security are also clear, despite the politicization.”

Speaking directly to the chairman of the security summit initiative, His Royal Highness, Major-General Abdullahi Bagudu Mamman, (retd), Buhari said:
