Share This


President Muhammadu Buhari has accredited the raging communal and religious crisis in the country to incitements by political elites and religious leaders who pleasure from exploiting people's persuasions for selfish ends.

Buhari made the revelation during a speech he gave to commemorate Nigeria's 20 years of unhindered democracy in Abuja on Tuesday.

”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.

He went on to say assert his administration's understanding of the direct impact of insecurity on the economy.

According to him, ”We know that there exists a strong correlation between economic inequality and insecurity, when economic inequality rises, insecurity rises.

”Terrorism and insecurity are worldwide phenomena and even the best-policed countries are experiencing increasing incidents of unrest and are finding things hard to cope.

”But when we actively reduce inequality through investments in social and hard infrastructure, insecurity reduces,” he added.

He however reiterated his commitment to working towards a united, safe and flourishing Nigeria.

”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.

”For the next four years, we will remain committed to improving the lives of people by consolidating efforts to address these key issues as well as emerging challenges of climate change, also resettling displaced communities and dealing decisively with the new flashes of insecurity across the country, and the impacts on food scarcity and regional stability.”
