Arewa Christians and Indigenous Pastors Association (ACIPA) has said that President Muhammadu Buhari should not have come out to contest a second term in office after his abysmal performance in office since May 2015.

The group of Christian clerics from the north enjoined Nigerians to elect credible leadership that would see to the country’s socio-economic and political development.

In a statement signed by the coordinator, Rev. Luka Shehu, the group described the years of Buhari-led administration, especially 2018, as the worst in the history of Nigeria.

“While looking forward to a more fulfilling, prosperous and secure 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 (religious) denominations widened with often little lip service or rhetoric.

“The spate of Fulani militia across Nigeria, ethnic cleansing of mainly indigenous people, the abduction of school girls at Dapchi in Yobe State, the non-negotiation for the release of Leah Sharibu and the killing of Christians are worrisome and of great concern to any sensible human being,” he noted.
