By Ikenga Chronicles November 30, 2016

Tired, fed up and overwhelmed over the looming social crisis rearing its ugly head as a result of millions of people displaced by Boko Haram, President Muhammadu has on Tuesday, November 29 raised alarm over the destructive effect of Boko Haram in the North East.

Buhari made this disclosure at a meeting he had with the world leader of the Tijjaniya Islamic Movement, Sheikh Sharif Ibn Mohammad, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, according to a statement issued by his spokesman, Garba Shehu.

Recall that on November 3, Buhari said he contemplated running away from office shortly after he was inaugurated as Nigeria’s president on May 29, 2015.

Buhari had said the ongoing economic crisis has made him feel as though he is suffering the consequences of someone else’s transgressions.

Political analyst  commented that Buhari’s Tuesday outburst is connected to the stress the president is passing through

While Speaking on Tuesday, Buhari lamented on the destruction of public institutions in the North-East by Boko Haram terrorists.

“Government is faced with the problem of repairing schools, health centres and whole towns. We must repair their schools and recruit teachers otherwise they will become tomorrow’s Boko Haram” Buhari warned.

The President reiterated the importance of justice in the affairs of governance, emphasizing that men and women in authority must show kindness and justice to all the people under them.

In commending the religious group for the prayers they had rendered for three days in Yola, Adamawa State for the recovery of the economy and peace in the country, the President said that the problem oil production was experiencing in the country and in the global market has re-enforced the importance of agriculture on Nigerians.

“We are learning the hard way.  The mistake we made was to abandon agriculture. We came at a time of difficulty the country has never experienced since the Civil War” he said.

Buhari also requested religious leaders to persuade Nigerians to embrace hard work, endurance and patience.

He assured Nigerians that his administration would not relent in the effort to achieve self-reliance and security for the nation.
