He made this known while he was speaking with newsmen in an interview.
According to the Pentecostal President, “as you know, the cost of living has become very high. When this government came to power in 2015, the price of petrol was N87. As of today, it is N145 per litre. I can go on and on.”
He added that “People go out and say that they are cattle herders, only to spring out and bring AK-47 (rifles), kill owners of the farm, rape their wives and then disappear into thin air. So, it is terrorism.”
In his words, “So, if it were enough, we would not have been crying. The cry is all over the place, across party lines. When we are dealing with this issue, we should not be thinking about parties. We want it stopped.”
Commenting on Leah Shaibu’s case he said that, “Why will several teenage girls be abducted, released and one retained just because she is a Christian?”
He added that “If the government will not do anything, it just leaves us to believe that there is a mission that we have not yet known that is being underplayed.”
“Every day that Leah stays behind (remains in captivity) creates some tension among the religious groups in this country and I will call on the government to do everything possible to show that it is impartial; to show that it is not with Boko Haram.”
“Even if it is a ransom that it wants to pay, it should do it and get Leah back.”
He conclusively added that “It is a Christian virtue to speak about things that are true and things that portray the peaceful coexistence of men and we stand by that. We do not encourage hate speech because it really can degenerate into problems that we cannot control.”
