President Buhari Reacts To Benue and Anambra Killings

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari while sending greetings on the occasion of Eid-el-Adha, linked the current challenges facing the country to the COVID-19 pandemic, insecurity and flooding that hindered local production for self-sustenance.

He renewed his commitment to creating a just, harmonious and prosperous country in which the safety of life and property is assured.

“Apart from the destruction caused to rice farms by floods, middlemen have also taken advantage of the local rice production to exploit fellow Nigerians, thereby undermining our goal of supporting local food production at affordable prices.”

“As an elected president who enjoys the goodwill of the ordinary people that gave us their mandate, let me assure you that we are continuing with measures to bring relief to Nigerians, including making fertilizer available at affordable prices to our farmers.

“Let me also use this opportunity to reassure Nigerians that we are taking measures to address our security challenges. We have started taking delivery of fighter aircraft and other necessary military equipment and hardware to improve the capacity of our security forces to confront terrorism and banditry,” he added.

“As practicing believers, we shouldn’t seek obscene profits by making life difficult and miserable for others. We should not seek happiness at the expense of others. Remember that Islam is a religion of charity that urges us to love our neighbour as we love ourselves.
