President Muhammadu Buhari has said ethnicity and religion are not the problems of Nigeria.
Buhari said Nigerians should blame themselves for the inherent injustices in the country.
Recounting his struggles to get justice at the courts, after disputed results of presidential elections in 2003, 2007, and 2011, Buhari submitted that people who ruled against him were of his own ethnic stock and religious persuasion, while those who stood up for him were of other faiths and ethnicity.
“Our problem is not ethnicity or religion, it is ourselves,” the President submitted.
“After my third appearance in the Supreme Court, I came out to speak to those who were present then. I told them that from 2003, I’d spent 30 months in court.
