Insurgency Created to Cripple Nigeria’s Economy and Development – Buhari
Former Head of State and leader of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), General Muhammadu Buhari has said the insurgency in parts of the country was created with the aim of undermining the economy and development of Nigeria
Buhari spoke yesterday in his hometown, while on a sympathy visit to the Emir of Daura’s palace following the recent bomb and gun attacks that left 3 soldiers dead last Thursday said: “The insurgency was a deliberate move to scuttle the security and development of Nigeria. Take for instance Kano and Borno states. The economy of the people in the two states was completely wiped out by the activities of insurgents. Nothing economic is moving in the two states,” said Buhari, who spoke while on a sympathy visit to the Emir of Daura’s palace.
“No nation in this world can develop with this kind of insurgency. It is unfortunate that activities of insurgents are on the increase in Nigeria,” he added.
Buhari said also no religion will condone the kind of terrorism taking place in Nigeria.
He urged Nigerians to intensify prayers for the restoration of peace and harmony in the country.
The Emir of Daura, Alhaji Farouq Umar Farouq, told the former head of state that he opposed the conduct of house-to-house search in Daura town by the military in the wake of the attack.
