The Minister said this during a courtesy visit by the Oluyin of Iyin-Ekiti, Oba Adeola Adeniyi Ajakaiye and his entourage to his office in Abuja on Thursday.
Mohammed was quoted in a statement on the ministry’s website.
He advised citizens not to succumb to doomsday predictions about Nigeria as they will not come to pass.
He said: “Talking about security, I want to use this opportunity to assure all Nigerians that despite the security challenges we are facing now, Nigeria is in safe hands. We must never succumb to the apocalyptic or doomsday predictions about our country because they won’t come to pass.
“It is also important for our leaders at all levels to give the people message of hope instead of making comments that can only aggravate tension.”
