Buhari said this in Abuja on Thursday at a meeting with catholic bishops under the aegis of Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria.
The President stated that the impression was wrong and went on to explain efforts of his government to stem the tide of insecurity being caused by the menace of Fulani militia.
He said, “The impression created that I was sitting in an air-conditioned office and home, enjoying myself while these things happened, is dishonest.
“At every step, I have tried to foresee these problems because I have the experience as a former military officer who commanded three out of the four divisions of the Nigerian army, in Lagos, Ibadan and Jos.
“I am quite aware of the problems we have and I am doing my best to get law enforcement agencies to be on alert.”
