In the last two years we have witnessed and overcome a good number of tests and challenges that are “especially related to our collective security,” Buhari said during a televised address marking the country’s Democracy Day.

Should the comma at “security” be outside the closing inverted commas instead of inside?

Thanks!

@tanguatlay,
In British style the comma would be placed after the quotation mark, or outside.

I actually prefer that style and often use it even though I'm in the USA.
