President Buhari yesterday May 2nd in Abuja restated his administration’s will to investigate the issue of herdsmen terrorizing communities within the country.
President Buhari who spoke at a meeting with members of the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria, stated, confirming that heads of national security agencies have been ordered to do everything necessary in bringing the culprits to justice. The Bishops were led by Most Rev. Ignatius Kaigama, the Archbishop of Jos.
In a statement signed by Femi Adesina the President expressed his condolences to all affected communities. His statement read:
“We are determined to secure all Nigerians and I have told the Inspector-General of Police and other security agencies, in very strong terms, to deal decisively with the attackers”.
“We need to rebuild our institutions methodically, we need to change the way we do things. In the last 10 years, crude oil sold for more than $100 per barrel, but Nigeria did not save. That is why we have found ourselves where we are today”.
He assured the bishops that his change mantra was still in place and that his administration would not rest until it makes good on its promises to Nigerians.
Most Rev. Kaigama expressed the solidarity of the CBCN with the president saying:
“We are willing to collaborate with you and with your administration, in which we see hope for a greater Nigeria.”
