The presidency has described as unfair the comment by the Catholic bishop of Yola Diocese, Rt. Rev. Fr. Stephen Mamza describing president Muhammadu Buhari as sleeping on duty as commander-in-chief.
The president’s senior special assistant on media and publicity, Malam Garba Shehu who stated this in a statement in Abuja observed that it is unbecoming of a religious leader to engage in an action that broke the old tradition of staying above politics.
The presidential spokesman maintained that as the Boko Haram has been degraded, the more than 400,000 displaced people absorbed by the Adamawa community have all gone back to Borno State and to those Council areas in Northern Adamawa.
According to him, the military personnel are also clearing litters of Boko Haram’s carnage and are, through the support of the administration as well as local and international partners, rebuilding roads and bridges, power lines, burnt schools, markets, destroyed churches, and mosques.
He added that the administration’s
intense security efforts and peace building would not only continue, but will
expand in response to such explosions of violence in the country.
