HURIWA said Buhari’s appointments in the past five years has caused animosity among Nigerians than the Biafran civil war did.

A statement by HURIWA’s National Coordinator, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko and the National Media Affairs Director, Miss Zainab Yusuf lamented that Muslims have enjoyed the “topmost juicy” appointments under Buhari.

The statement reads: “Buhari’s administration in the last five years has planted animosity between different ethnic nationalities than the civil war created.

“It will take the Grace of God and the will to overpower our differences for Nigeria to rebuild the bridge of unity that the selective administrative style of President Muhammadu Buhari has destroyed in the last five years.

“It is regrettable that even within the core Moslem North which enjoys the topmost juicy federal appointments made so far since the last five years of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration, there is a widening chasm between few elites who have cornered all the juicy positions and discontented but restive youths who out of frustration have launched large scale social upheavals in the forms of armed banditry and outright unleashing of blood against soft targets in the North leading to the destruction of many towns.”
