President Muhammadu Buhari has noted that Nigeria may face another crisis in form of Boko Haram if the two million people, mostly women and children, displaced by the insurgents were not properly taken care of.
The president was speaking yesterday at a meeting with the world leader of Tijjaniya Islamic Movement, Sheikh Sharif Ibn Mohammad, at the State House, Abuja.
Buhari said, “Government is faced with the problem of repairing schools, health centres and whole towns.
“We must repair their schools and recruit teachers, otherwise, they will become tomorrow’s Boko Haram.”
The President further thanked the religious group for the prayers they had rendered for three days in Yola, Adamawa state for the recovery of the economy and peace in the country.
He also told the group that the problem oil production was experiencing in the country and in the global market, had forced the imperative of agriculture on Nigerians.
He added, “We are learning the hard way. The mistake we made was to abandon agriculture. We came at a time of difficulty the country has never experienced since the Civil War.”
