Ndume, representing Borno South, said while fielding questions from journalists after the turbaning of All Progressives Congress national chairmanship aspirant, Malam Saliu Mustapha, as the new Turaki of Ilorin on Friday.

“Insecurity is going down, it is not eliminated. Normally this kind of a thing is not something that you will just say it is all-over,” he said.

The former majority leader said that the federal government is doing well and doing its best to tackle the challenge of insecurity.

Speaking after his turbaning, Mustapha said that he was delighted to be recognised and the honour would spur him to contribute more to his community.

He thanked members of the Ilorin Emirate and the Emir of Ilorin, Alhaji Ibrahim Sulu Gambari, for the honour.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Gov. AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara, his deputy, Mr Kayode Alabi and Deputy Gov. Edward Onoja of Kogi, were among dignitaries that attended the event with display of horse ride and cultural display.
