President Muhammadu Buhari has vowed to deal decisively with perpetrators of crisis across the country. He said no religion or civilised culture tolerates violence especially killing a fellow human beings.
The president made the promise when he met separately with the Qadiriyya Muslim Movement in Africa and the Izalatul-Bid’a-Wa-Iqamatus-Sunnah at the State House in Abuja.
He said that anyone or group of persons, who unleashed violence on the innocent in the name of a movement, cult or religion, lacked understanding of the ordinances of God.
“You can’t kill to please God; and I know no religion tolerates the taking of another person’s life in the name of a religious movement.

“There is never a justification for killing any member of the society.
“We have been tackling the Boko Haram menace, and we have made significant impact, and we will extend the measures to stop all wanton killings,’’ he said.
According to the president, the security apparatus will be consistently reviewed to check threats to the peaceful co-existence of all Nigerians, and ensure the safety of lives and properties.
President Buhari told the delegation that his political party, the All Progressives Congress, campaigned on three issues, noting that his government had been consistent in ensuring that “it provides adequate security, fights corruption and stimulates the economy for creation of jobs’’.
