The Presidency, on Monday, said terrorism became bigger while terrorists got more daring under the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan due to the administration’s incompetence and mis-governance.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said this while responding to a statement credited to a former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.), that the last administration cleared the North-East of Boko Haram terrorists to make election possible in the affected areas in 2015.
Dasuki, who is being tried for his roles in the alleged diversion of $2.1bn meant for arms procurement, said this in a foreword he wrote in a newly-published book, ‘Boko Haram Media War – An Encounter with the Spymaster,’ written by a media consultant and public relations professional, Yushau Shuaib.
But Shehu said no amount of lies and fiction could change the fact that the last administration performed poorly in the fight against terrorism.
