Kukah said this during his virtual presentation on the persecution of Christians in Nigeria by armed extremist groups in northern Nigeria.

He accused President Buhari of deliberately appointing more people of his ethnicity and faith into political offices and polarising the country.

On his part, the chairman of Action Alliance, Adekunle Rufai, has said because insecurity is lucrative in northern Nigeria, it has remained unabated.

Rufai made the comment while addressing journalists in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja on Monday, July 12.

He called on the Buhari administration to diminish banditry and other forms of insecurity in the country, adding that the authorities have the primary responsibility of securing the lives and property of the people it is governing.
