Emir of Katsina, Dr. Abdulmumini Kabiru Usman has told President Buhari that those working against his second term bid were behind the killings witnessed in many parts of the country.
The statement came from the Emir during a visit by the president to his palace over the death of 95-year-old Chief Imam of Katsina Central Mosque, Alhaji Muhammadu Lawal.
The Emir said more than 80% of the crises experienced in Nigeria today are being sponsored by individuals, and designed to discredit and bring down President Buhari’s government.
“Those who don’t want you re-elected and who don’t want your government to succeed are behind the current killings ravaging the country. More than 80 per cent of these crises are being sponsored by individuals. It is designed to discredit and bring down your government but they will not succeed. We will continue to pray for you and, therefore, urge Nigerians to join us in praying.” the monarch said.
“Most of the issues in security are deliberately created by detractors to distract you from the good work you are doing and I can assure you, by God’s grace, they will not succeed.
“As far as we are concerned, you are doing a good job to clean up the country and restore it on the path of honour and dignity,” he said
