He further talked about the commitment of his administration to the respect of human rights.
Picking holes in his speech, Afenifere accused the Federal Government of ignoring calls for dialogue by ethnic nationalities in Nigeria to resolve the country’s issues.
Afenifere’s position was made public in a statement by its spokesman, Jare Ajayi.
The statement reads: “It is interesting, perhaps comforting that the Nigerian authority realizes that dialogue is the way to go in resolving knotty issues. It is however hypocrisy of the highest order for this same authority to be prescribing this to foreign authorities while describing those calling for the same thing at home as ‘hate speech makers’ and separatists.
“The Reform that Buhari advocated for the United Nations is the same thing those calling for dialogue at home are calling for. Why and how our president considered reform and dialogue as necessary at the global level but consider same as anathema in Nigeria beats one’s imagination.It is called Reform at the global level and Restructuring at home.”
