- Anglican diocese bishop Abiodun Ogunyemi commends President Buhari for his successful efforts over the released of many Chibok girls
- Ogunyemi says the Nigerian military must be highly commended for the sacrifice and commitment to the Nigerian nation
Reverend Abiodun Ogunyemi of the Zaria Anglican communion has said the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan was incapable of confronting Boko Haram for a number of reasons.
According to Daily Trust, Ogunyemi said that the Nigerian churches failed in assisting him to conquer the insurgents.
He said the leaders of Nigerian churches must bury their heads in shame for their inability to properly advise the former president on the need to be strong and courageous in fighting the terrorists.
He however commended President Muhammadu Buhari for his successful efforts over the released of 82 Chibok girls.
He said: “We want to commend the current administration of President Muhammadu Buhari for the giant stride in defeating the terrorists to minimal level.
“The Nigerian military must be highly commended for the sacrifice and commitment to the Nigerian nation.''
Ogunyemi also urged the Kaduna state governor Malam Nasiru el-Rufai to extend his development strides to Southern Kaduna in order to address his “lopsided” road construction.
NAIJ.com recalls that the 82 abducted school girls released by Boko Haram met with President Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja at about 7.04pm on Sunday, May 7.
The girls met with Buhari inside his official residence behind closed doors.
They were driven to the Villa in a military convoy amidst tight security.
