President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that ethnicity and religion are not to blame for the country’s numerous issues, but rather “we ourselves” for fundamental inequalities.
President Buhari in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Chief Femi Adesina came to this conclusion after reflecting on the complexities of the Nigerian condition.
According to the statement, the President spoke while receiving members of the Muhammadu Buhari/Osinbajo (MBO) Dynamic Support Group, who visited State House, Abuja, to present a compendium of five years achievements of the administration.
President Buhari went into the trajectory of his struggles to get justice at the courts, after disputed results of presidential elections in 2003, 2007, and 2011, submitting that people who ruled against him were of his own ethnic stock and religious persuasion, while those who stood up for him were of other faith and ethnicity.
He said, “Our problem is not ethnicity or religion, it is ourselves.
After my third appearance in the Supreme Court, I came out to speak to those who were present then. I told them that from 2003, I’d spent 30 months in court.
