Buhari Won’t Allow Ethnic, Religious Violence – Garba Shehu


President Muhammadu Buhari Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, on Sunday said his principal has vowed that his government will not allow any ethnic or religious violence.

The Presidential aide stated this in a statement titled “President Buhari condemns reported cases of ethnic violence in the country.”

The statement read, “President Muhammadu Buhari has vowed that his government will protect all religious and ethnic groups, whether majority or minority in line with its responsibility under the constitution.”

“In a reaction to reports of breakout of violence in some parts of the country by some ethnic and sectional groups, President Buhari warned that the government will not allow any ethnic or religious group to stoke up hatred and violence against other groups.”

“The President condemned such violence and gave assurance that his government will act decisively to stop the spread of any such violence.”

“He appealed to religious and traditional leaders as well governors and other elected leaders across the country to join hands with the Federal Government to ensure that communities in their domain are not splintered along ethnic and other primordial lines.”

In another development, President Muhammadu Buhari has been called out by the Committee for the Defence of Human Rights for not attending to herdsmen issues in the country.

CDHR noted that Buhari being a cattle owner will not be fair in tackling the farmers-herdsmen crisis in the country, especially in the South-West.
