President Buhari has commented on the planned withdrawal of the military from some communities in the country where peace has been restored.

In a statement released by the President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity Garba Shehu, the Nigerian leader said the withdrawal will not be done in a manner that will expose communities to more risks of attacks.

The President who urged Nigerians and public affairs analysts to carefully study the statement released after a security council meeting with service chiefs said his “administration will not abandon citizens in need of protection.”

He further disclosed that when it’s been confirmed that the withdrawal will not in any way jeopardize peace already achieved, the military pullout will be in a careful and gradual way.

President Buhari said; 

“You don’t need to worry. We will not expose our people and their communities to harm or danger
The withdrawal is to allow the military to focus on its primary duty of defending the nation against external aggression. It is the duty of the police to handle internal security since Nigeria is not at war.
