Buhari Send Warning Message To Christians Who Title Terrorism Happening In Nigeria As Muslims Fault

President Muhammadu Buhari warns Nigerians Christians and also beg Nigerians to be united in their resolve to fight terrorism and ensure peace reigns in the country. Buhari's statement came after allegation of religious persecution by the Christian Association of Nigeria, as many christian toke to Media to accuse Islam of been responsible for Nigeria violence.

The group has accused the government of supporting the activities of Boko Haram, the Islamic State West African Province, and other terrorist groups in the country.

The Presidency has told the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) that the politicization of religion, as forbidden by the constitution, has no place in Nigeria.

The presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, while reacting to recent statements from CAN, said the current government shall never tolerate religious intolerance.

Shehu, who restated government's support for the freedom to practice whichever belief individuals wished, advised CAN to have a proper perspective of the current challenges in order not to fall into the antics of the terrorists.

The statement partly read: "The security forces of Nigeria are working continuously to return those taken hostage by Boko Haram to their families, friends and communities. In doing this, the government has full confidence in their ability to accomplish the task.

"On its own part, government has condemned some of the appalling acts of terror, especially following the festive period. Yet, to continue to see these happenings solely in religious terms - removed from social, economic and environmental factors - simplifies complexities that must be heeded. Not seeing them as they should be is exactly what the terrorists and groups wish: they want Nigerians to see their beliefs as reason to turn against one another.

"On the contrary, Christians and Muslims alike are united in their opposition to Boko Haram and the hatred for decency that the infamous group stands for.

"Nigerians must continue to be united in ensuring that they do not subscribe to the terrorists' message of division. Unfortunately, some leaders and politicians seek to make political capital from our religious differences. As we fight Boko Haram on the ground, so too must we tackle their beliefs: stability and unity in face of their hatred is itself a rejection of their worldview."
