Buhari Meets Catholic Bishops In Abuja, Says Killer Hersdmen Will Be Exposed


President Muhammadu Buhari has said in clear unmistakable terms that he has instructed heads of national security agencies to take all necessary action to apprehend and expose those behind the heinous attacks in Ukpabi Nimbo community in Enugu State.

Speaking at a meeting with members of the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria, President Buhari Monday in Abuja, expressed the resolve of his administration to deal decisively and expeditiously with the matter.
 The Bishops were led by Most Rev. Ignatius Kaigama, the Archbishop of Jos.

 “We are determined to secure all Nigerians and I have told the Inspector-General of Police and other security agencies, in very strong terms, to deal decisively with the attackers,” the president said, according to a statement signed by spokesperson, Femi Adesina.

President Buhari expressed his condolences to the Catholic Bishop of Enugu, the people of Ukpabi Nimbo and all other communities that have suffered fatalities and other losses from the recent attacks.
Speaking on other national issues, the president assured the Bishops that he was acting with deliberation and moving methodically to implement his change agenda for the good of the country.

“We need to rebuild our institutions methodically, we need to change the way we do things.
“In the last 10 years, crude oil sold for more than $100 per barrel, but Nigeria did not save.  That is why we have found ourselves where we are today,” the president said.

The president assured the bishops that his administration was working very hard to fulfill all the promises it had made to Nigerians, adding that his greatest motivating factor now is the desire to bring positive change to Nigeria.

On behalf of the bishops, Most Rev. Kaigama expressed the solidarity of the CBCN with the president.
“We are willing to collaborate with you and with your administration, in which we see hope for a greater Nigeria,” he told the president.

The bishops pledged continued prayers for Nigeria and the government, expressing their conviction that current hardships are temporary, and Nigeria will soon overcome its present difficulties.
