However, the minister while addressing a press conference on the performance of the Mr Buhari’s administration in 2019, described the year as challenging.

He said: “It was indeed a challenging year in terms of insecurity, but the federal government faced the challenge squarely to cancel doomsday predictions from the political opposition and their allies.
