Killings targeted at embarrassing your govt – Katsina Emir to Buhari
The Emir of Katsina Alhaji Mohammadu Kabir Usman Monday in Katsina told visiting President Muhammadu Buhari that the spate of killings that is ravaging the country and threatening national security is sponsored and targeted at embarrassing his government and undermine his re-election bid.
He said ’’those who doesn’t want you re-elected and who doesn’t want your government to succeed are behind the current killings ravaging the country.
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 emir while re-iterating that the solution to the present national challenges lies in corporate prayers, called on Nigerians and lovers of democracy to offer fervent prayers and seek divine intervention to the present national predicament.
While responding, President Buhari told the emir he came to the palace to console him over the death of the chief Imam of Katsina mosque, Alhaji Mohammadu Lawal who was a bosom friend and a devoted Muslim.
He assured the emir that his government will remain undeterred in delivering on his campaign promises and tackling current security challenges in the country.
