A group of Christian clerics, Arewa Christians and Indigenous Pastors Association, ACIPA, has enjoined Nigerians to look for a viable President that will take the country to its promised land.

The group stated that President Muhammadu Buhari has woefully failed the country.

In its New Year message signed by the Coordinator, Rev. Luka Shehu, the group described the years of Buhari-led administration and especially 2018 as the worst in the history of Nigeria.

The statement explained, “While looking forward to a more fulfilling, prosperous and secured Nigeria in 2019 and beyond, it is pertinent to note the abysmal failure of the Buhari administration in the areas he promised Nigerians since 2015.

“The gulf between Christians and other denominations have widened with often little lip service or rhetoric.

“The spate of Fulani militia across Nigeria, ethnic cleansing of Christians and mainly indigenous people, the abduction of school girls at Dapchi in Yobe State, the none-negotiation for the release of Leah Sharibu are worrisome and of great concern to any sensible human being.

“The Decmber, 2018 spate of serial attacks by well organized terrorists at Metele, Baga and other towns where soldiers were decimated and had to escape while weapons of assorted types were carted away by terrorists who took over towns.

“The horrific menace of recent killings in Kaduna, Plateau, Yobe and Zamfara states where traditional rulers were abducted and killed in cold blood, were all evidences that the Buhari administration has failed Nigerians.”

The association said that in decent societies, both the President and the Service Chiefs would have resigned since they have proved incapable of defending Nigerians, which is their primary duty.
