Nigerians are the problem of the country – President Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that Nigerians, not ethnicity or religion, are the country’s problem.

The President recounted his struggle for justice after disputed presidential election results in 2003, 2007, and 2011 when he received members of the Muhammadu Buhari/Osinbajo (MBO) Dynamic Support Group at the State House in Abuja on Wednesday, June 30 to present a compendium of the administration’s five-year achievements.

Buhari said that those who opposed him were of his own ethnicity and religious beliefs, while those who supported him were of other faiths and ethnicities.

According to the President,

“Our issue isn’t one of ethnicity or religion; it’s one of ourselves.

“I came out to talk to those who were there after my third appearance before the Supreme Court. I informed them that I had spent 30 months in court since 2003.

“My classmate in secondary school in Katsina was the President of the Court of Appeal, which was the first port of call for presidential contenders at the time. Justice Umaru Abdullahi, we were in the same class for six years.

“My legal advisor was Chief Mike Ahamba, an Igbo guy who was a Roman Catholic. My first witness was in the box when the President of the court decided that we should make our case.

“Ahamba urged that a letter be written to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) requesting that the register of seats in certain of the states be presented to show that what they had declared was incorrect. It was recorded.

“When they handed down their verdict, another Igbo man, the late Justice Nsofor, inquired about INEC’s response to the letter submitted to them. They simply ignored it. He then made the decision to write a minority opinion. After 27 months in court, he was released.

“We went to the Supreme Court,” says the narrator. Who was Nigeria’s Chief Justice (CJN)? I’m a Hausa-Fulani from Zaria. The panellists went in for approximately 30 minutes and then returned to indicate they were taking a break. They were gone for three months. They discharged us when they returned in less than 15 minutes.

“Who was the Chief Justice of the United States in 2007?” Kutigi kutigi kutigi kutigi A Muslim from the north once more. He dismissed the lawsuit after around 8 months.

“In 2011, Musdafa, a Fulani guy from Jigawa, my state’s neighbour, was elected CJN due of my persistence. My lawsuit was dismissed by him.

“I’ve shown you around to show you that our issue isn’t one of ethnicity or religion. It is us who are to blame.

“I was adamant about not giving up. After what occurred in Khaki, I attempted to wear Agbada. Something was done to me as a result of what I had done to others. You’re aware of it. Finally, I was caught and detained, and they were handed back the items they had taken. I spent three and a half years there. Nigeria is the name of the country.

“I hope historians and intellectuals chronicle this because it is an amazing stage of political growth. Allow our great-grandchildren to see how far we’ve progressed. We didn’t have it as easy as some people believe. Not because God has blessed us with a large population and abundant resources. We’ve had to go through a lot along the way.

“I make an effort to highlight these things because you banded together, pooled your resources, and deployed your energy without any help from me. I can’t express my gratitude enough. I’m grateful to you and Nigerians because in 2019, I visited every state, and the people who came out to see me across the country (because I’m committed to serving Nigeria and Nigerians) showed real affection.

“Thank God, they haven’t been able to accuse me of corruption throughout the years.” I’ve served as Governor, Minister of Petroleum Resources, Head of State, and President, and I’m currently serving my second term. I appreciate the fact that you came together, spent your energy, time, and resources without being pushed, and I thank you for that. I guarantee you, history will be kind to you.”
