President Buhari receives in audience Archbishop of Canterbury and High Commissioner of Nigeria to United Kingdom in London.
Buhari who is now in London made the statement while receiving Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, adding that the problem should not been seen from the point of view of religion, saying it was sociological and economic.
"Nigerians are accusing President Buhari and his government of complicity in the herdsmen killings and all that the President could do in response is to blame Gaddafi, who became history seven years ago?"
A statement by the party's spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, yesterday, said: "We invite Nigerians to recall that in November 2017, President Buhari had informed the Nigerian community in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire that Gadaffi's fighters were responsible for the escalation of Boko Haram insurgency". When he was killed, the gunmen escaped with their arms.

The laboratory results, which came in on Wednesday night, were to be circulated to OPCW member states on Thursday. The report does not name the source of the nerve agent, a subject which is beyond the remit of the inspectors.
"We, therefore, urge all Nigerians to continue to be alert and support one another in this trying time, irrespective of ethnicity, creed or class, as we collectively work to salvage our nation from the misrule of the incompetent APC, come 2019", the statement read in part.
Buhari lamented that "irresponsible politics" has been brought into the farmers/herders' crisis but assured that enduring solutions would be found, and justice done to all concerned. He said, "I declared before leaving home because Nigerians were talking too much about whether I would run or not". We have many things to focus on, like security, agriculture, economy, anti-corruption, and many others. "We have cut the importation of rice by about 90%, saving billions of dollars in the process". Even professionals have gone back to the land. "I am so pleased", he said. Making noise would not help. This is no doubt another global embarrassment from a President who knows nothing other than to blame people for his own failure. We won't deal with them.
On his part, Archbishop Welby said it was always a delight to see President Buhari whom he has "tremendous respect for". Great statesmen are those who run for the good of their country. President Buhari gave another vista from which the herdsmen/farmers clashes could be considered, but rather than be reflective and do critical interrogation, the wailers engaged in their pastime: they began to wail, including senators and people who should naturally be level-headed and examine issues dispassionately.
