Buhari Vows To Deal With Politicians Sponsoring Violence Across Nigeria
President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday vowed to deal with some unnamed politicians who he alleged are behind the violence rocking parts of the country.
According to him, such politicians would be fished out and dealt with accordingly.
A statement issued on his behalf by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, quoted him as saying this when he spoke at the closing event of the 2018 Army Day celebrations held in Borno State.
The President was reported to have said the disgruntled politicians who have lost out were sponsoring violence in order to get relevance.
While thanking the armed forces for keeping the country safe, Buhari acknowledged that there were still challenges being faced by the nation
His words: “This does not mean there are no challenges. There are pockets of violence in several states.
“Some deliberately instigated by disgruntled politicians who have lost all arguments and are desperate to cause mayhem as a way of seeking relevance.
“We shall fish them out and punish according to the provisions of the law.”
“We have worked tirelessly to ensure and preserve the dignity and sanctity of life. When I was sworn in as the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, I promised that this administration would tackle the challenges of insecurity, poor economy and fight corruption.”
“We are all witnesses to the fact that our once battered economy as a nation has exited recession and is once again vibrant. Our nation is safe again, thanks to the efforts of our security agencies.”
“I want to use this opportunity to reassure the world, Nigerians and the families of the remaining kidnapped Chibok girls and Leah Sharebu of the Dapchi School girls that this administration will not relent in our efforts to see that they are all released.”
