The minister noted that the attacks did not take place successfully for lack of preparation.


According to Aregbesola: “Imo was in April this year. Kabba was in September. Abologo was in October and Jos was in November. Those captured the attacks.


“When your our best does not suffice, it’s no longer a question of your inability to make preparation or failure for preparation or preparedness.


“It’s just that at that instance, you just couldn’t hold the defense and several factors are responsible.

“As to whether it calls for my resignation, I still don’t see any need for that because it’s not for lack of preparedness that the attacks were successful. No.”
