On Friday, the President, Muhammadu Buhari, who was in Katsina State issued a statement about the situation of things in the country.
He made the statement in the presence of the Emir of Daura, Dr Umar Faruk Umar, who was there on invitation at the palace.
The President was there at his hometown to mark the Eid-el-Kabir, which prompted the invitation to the Emir.
We expected to hear him mention the burning unrest and insecurity in the country.
Here is what he said,
“We want to thank God always for keeping us together as a country. From January 15, 1966, the country was thrown into political crisis. We had a 30-month civil war that resulted in the loss of about a million lives,”
“We still thank God for keeping us together. We remain grateful to all those who showed interest in our unity and progress. May God continue to bless them,” he added.
We were however expecting him to address the tumultuous period Nigeria is in, and we are keeping our fingers crossed.
