Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has said insecurity is the major challenge faced by the Federal Government in 2021.


He said this during a press conference to showcase the achievements of
the president, Muhammadu Buhari’s regime during the outgoing year
2021.


According to him, despite the long list of achievements by Buhari’s
regime, insecurity was a major challenge.

He, however, explained that the Armed Forces of Nigeria recorded some
successes using a combination of kinetic and non-kinetic operations,
coupled with a review of strategies.


This, he said, led to the neutralisation of over 1,000 terrorists, the rescue
of 2,000 civilians and the surrender of over 22,000 terrorists including
their families in the North-East.


He noted that many arms and ammunition were also recovered, adding
that several bomb-making factories of the terrorists were destructed.
