In a reaction to the allegation by the Catholic Bishops conferenceof Nigeria, the presidency has cautioned on utterances saying that the situation at hand demanded collective efforts to find solutions.
Earlier Catholic Bishops accused President Muhammadu Buhari of treating the issue of Fulani herdsmen killings of innocent with kid gloves .
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Chief Femi Adesina refuted this claim vehemently, saying that blame game was not the best way to go but in arriving at solutions, blame game is not the way to go .He added that rational voice is welcome in finding lasting solutions to challenges confronting the country, particularly killings by herdsmen, whether alleged or real.
According to him,accusing government of levity, when in fact all hands are on deck, worsens the situation, as it creates panic and fear among Nigerians, which is what the bishops incidentally also decried in their communique. “Nigeria has faced many challenges, and surmounted them all, by the grace of God. This too shall pass.”
