- President Buhari has been urged to stop blaming the former administration for Nigeria's woes
- The Bishop of the Methodist Church Nigeria, Diocese of Onitsha, advised Buhari to consolidate on the legacies of Goodluck Jonathan
Expressing worry over the state of the nation, the Methodist Church Nigeria, Diocese of Onitsha, Eastern Gateway, has said that something urgent should be done in the area of security, health, power, roads and employment, to save the nation from total collapse, Vanguard reports.
Legit.ng gathered that Rt. Rev. Livinus Biereonwu Onugha, the Bishop of the Methodist Church Nigeria, Diocese of Onitsha, stated this in an address he presented during the 16th Annual Diocesean Synod 2018, which held at All Saints Methodist Church Onitsha.
The church also urged President Muhammadu Buhari to stop blaming the former administration for the woes of the country.
The bishop urged Buhari should consolidate on Jonathan’s achievements and legacies, like the process of educating herdsmen which the former president started.
He said: “It still beats my imagination how the All Progressives Congress (APC) government of President Muhammadu Buhari is not consolidating on the legacies of Goodluck Jonathan who started the process of educating the herdsmen, by establishing schools for them.
"At this digital age, the APC government is encouraging herdsmen to continue to wander from place to place in rearing flocks. The core north has governed this nation more than any other but unfortunately, we have more uneducated youths in the north than any other place in Nigeria.”
In a previous report by Legit.ng, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, the governor of Kogi on Tuesday, April 17, set up a judicial commission of inquiry to look into the suspected herdsmen attacks in the Ogane-Nigwu, Ojuwo-Ajimadi and Agbenema-Ife areas of the state.
The committee, which comprise fourteen men, is to determine the immediate and remote causes of the crisis in the affected communities, identify individuals or group of persons responsible for the mayhem, the Punch reports.
The committee was also to ascertain the extent of damage done to lives and properties in the incidents and make recommendations for the restoration of peace and order as well as finding ways of preventing a repeat of such occurrences.
