President Buhari Reacts To Latest Terrorist Attack By Lawless Tribesmen In Kaduna.
President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday condemned the dastardly attack on a funeral procession in Borno, which caused the deaths of over 60 mourners.
The Presidency said the proscription of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) has nothing to do with banning the larger numbers of peaceful and law abiding Shi’ites in the country from practicing their religion, instead it was to discourage wanton violence, murder and willful destruction of public and private property.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has urged the National Assembly to respond to demands by Nigerians by immediately setting up an adhoc committee to recover the allegedly missing $1bn drawn from the Excess Crude Account by the Buhari Presidency in 2017, purportedly for security services.
No doubt the president’s behaviour transcends limitations caused by old age. And we cannot use it to sufficiently explain his mulish, indifferent, and nepotistic behaviour. But we know it’s a factor.
