He said he'll tackle insecurity with zeal when elected president.
General Buhari said the frequency with which terrorists destroy lives and property embarrassed him beyond measure, and that tackling such indiscriminate violence would be his priority once elected into office.
“Terrorist violence has achieved nothing good for anybody,” he said adding that his administration would confront insecurity with determination and remarkable zeal, according to a condolence message he issued on Monday.
The APC flag bearer said nothing can justify the endless and brutal terrorist violence targeted at innocent people, which has also destroyed the economic and social life of the people in areas where terrorists are notoriously active.
He however called for increased vigilance among the people, adding that the ease with which suicide bombers blend with law-abiding citizens and reach their targets undetected is disturbing.
He explained that majority of the people have no idea about the features and characteristics of suicide bombers, and cannot, therefore, identify such killers in their company.
Buhari also extended his condolences to the families of the victims of the latest terrorist attacks on Maiduguri.
He condoled the families of the recent violence in Rivers State in which some unidentified gunmen attacked and killed APC supporter in the state.
He said violence benefits nobody and, instead, it sets back the progress of the country.
