Buhari called on citizens to be fair in their criticisms of his administration.
He spoke in Abuja on Thursday when he received Reverend Yakubu Pam, Executive Secretary of the Nigeria Christian Pilgrims Commission (NCPC).
As regards the killings, abductions and other challenges, especially in the Northeast, the President reminded Nigerians of the previous state.
“What was the situation when we came? Try and ask people from Borno or from Adamawa for that matter and Yobe.”
Buhari admitted there are still “occasional Boko Haram problems”.
He, however, stressed that people from the states he mentioned know the difference because a lot of them moved to Kaduna, Kano and in Abuja.
“We were not spared of the attacks at a time. The government is doing its best and I hope that eventually, our best will be good enough.”
Buhari assured that the welfare of Internally Displaced Persons was paramount on the agenda of the government.
In his remarks, Pam intimated the President with some NCPC activities since he was appointed in July 2020.
The cleric listed the Peace Summit on Southern Kaduna and peacebuilding efforts in some states.
Pam hinted that the commission has proposed to host Christian religious leaders in a meeting to help douse pressures within the polity.
