President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday, November 27, urged Nigerians to learn to live with each peacefully, noting that that the country does not need another war.
The Nigerian president made the statement when condemning the on-going violence in the Boki local government area of Cross River state which has so far claimed the lives of some residents.
The Nigeria president in a statement through one of his media aides, Garba Shehu, also called on the Cross River state government and the Boki local government authorities to resolve the crisis urgently with a view to finding a lasting solution to the issue.
He said while there have been claims and counter-claims as who restarted the killings and arson between neighbouring Nsadop and the Boje communities, it was a must for Nigerians to learn to live peacefully with each other.
“While the origin of the mayhem is still unclear, President Buhari notes that no dispute or grievance is worth the violent snatching away of another person's life," the president said.
“Nigerians must learn to live peacefully with each other and seek less brutish means of resolving conflicts. Our country does not need another war."
Meanwhile, a presidential aide, Garba Shehu, has warned Nigerians against blaming the president for everything, including issues that are not his business.
Channel TV reports that Shehu was quoted as saying this during an interview with reporters on Tuesday, November 26, in Abuja, the nation's capital.
Speaking specifically about the election in Bayelsa, Shehu faulted the purported reports that former President Goodluck Jonathan was blackmailed to support the APC.
He described the claim as false and irresponsible, wondering how such a story could be considered credible to the extent of being given space in some newspapers.
