Buhari blame Politicians, religious leaders over communal, religious crisis in Nigeria
Nigerian President has pointed out people responsible for the ravaging crisis ongoing in the country.
The All Progressive Congress party leader, Mohammadu Buhari said most of the communal crises in the country are sponsored by politicians and religious leaders.
The President revealed this during his speech delivery at the Eagles Square, Abuja to mark 20 years of unbroken democratic rule.
He added that the insecurity in the country was sponsored by the political elite and religious leaders seeking to weaken the country.
In his words: ”Most of the instances of inter-communal and inter-religious strife and violence were and are still as a result of sponsorship or incitements by ethnic, political or religious leaders hoping to benefit by exploiting our divisions and fault lines, thereby weakening our country. Our country Nigeria is a great country,” he said.
”According to United Nations estimates, our population will rise to 411 million by 2050, making us the third most populous nation on earth behind only China and India.”
The President then assured Nigerians he must remain the country united.
”I was involved at close quarters in the struggle to keep Nigeria one. I can, therefore, do no more than dedicating the rest of my life to work for the unity of Nigeria and upliftment of Nigerians,” he said.
He also also acknowledged that his administration was aware of the dangers of insecurity facing the economy.
