ABUJA – Ms Marilyn Ogar, Deputy Director, Public Relations, Department of State Services (DSS), said on Wednesday that security agencies were not overwhelmed by current security challenges in the country.
Fielding questions from newsmen at the National Information Centre in Abuja, Ogar assured that they were working to keep the nation united.
“We are not overwhelmed; be rest assured that Nigeria will not disintegrate; government security forces are doing everything to ensure we remain one.
“If security forces have given you a promise that they will ensure that no part of this country is ceded to the enemy, I think we should stand by it.
“We should collectively believe in ourselves and encourage security forces, I can’t do your job just as you can’t do mine,’’ she said.
She urged citizens to be their brother’s keeper, adding that they should endeavour to know who their neighbours were.
She said security forces could not be everywhere.
Earlier, Coordinator of the centre, Mr Mike Omeri, said that security agencies were intensifying efforts to stop the Boko Haram menace.
