President Muhammadu Buhari has said that Nigerians are the problem of Nigeria, ruling out the influence of ethnicity and religion.
Buhari said this while receiving members of the Muhammadu Buhari/Osinbajo (MBO) Dynamic Support Group, who visited State House, Abuja, to present a compendium of five years achievements of the administration.
The president reflected on the complexities of the Nigerian condition and resolved that neither ethnicity nor religion was to blame “but we ourselves” for inherent injustices.
Buhari went into the trajectory of his struggles to get justice at the courts, after disputed results of presidential elections in 2003, 2007, and 2011.
He said that people who ruled against him were of his own ethnic stock and religious persuasion, while those who stood up for him were of other faith and ethnicity.
“Our problem is not ethnicity or religion, it is ourselves,” the president said.
