Half-a-million Policemen Can't Perform any miracle - President Buhari


 President Muhammadu Buhari's spokesperson, Garba Shehu on Tuesday, February 4, 2020, stressed that there was no miracle with which less than half-a-million policemen can effectively protect a population of 200 million.

The spokesman shared a series of tweets on behalf of the president urging the citizens of the country to participate more in the issue of security.

Garba's tweets served as a presidential reaction to the prayer walk/protest against insecurity of the country carried out by the Christian Association of Nigerian (CAN).

The tweets read: "The actions of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in recent days represent the peaceful right of all Nigerians to protest and express their views on matters of religion, ethics, politics and society.

"The origination of their protests is the shocking, unacceptable death of Pastor Lawan Andimi at the hands of Boko Haram. The President feels their pain, and that of his family, for his loss.

"The President believes, as does every member of his administration, both Christian and Muslim in the words of CAN’s placards: “All life is sacred.”

"Whether you are Christian or Muslim, all Nigerians and their beliefs must be respected.

"The duty of all of us is to uphold the rights of others to worship according to their faith – and to respect the rights of each other to do so freely in the spirit of brotherhood and respect – and without interference.

"This means, however, that we must stop false claims that only serve to divide one community against the other. There is no place in Nigeria for those who politicise religion. This is the President’s message to both Muslim and Christian communities alike.

"In the light of this, the CAN-inspired prayers and street enlightenment in our cities are much welcome as sensitizers to the need for ALL CITIZENS irrespective of faith, religion or language to accept their duty and role in law enforcement, to prevent crime in all its manifestations, be it corruption, theft, terrorism, banditry or kidnapping. Without citizen involvement, there is no miracle with which less than half-a-million policemen can effectively protect a population of 200 million."
