New Archbishop of the Anglican Communion, Jos Province, Most Rev. Markus Anfani, has hailed Buhari and the Federal Government for their battles against corruption and insecurity.
He, however, added that more has to be done to completely eradicate corruption and insecurity in the country.
He revealed this in an interview with newsmen on Monday in Yola.
According to him, Buhari deserves praise for what he has done thus far and the people must continue praying for the peace of the nation.
His words, “Let me appreciate the leadership of this nation at the moment under President Muhammadu Buhari for what it is doing in the fight against corruption and tackling insurgency, but more needs to be done,”
“We should pray for the peace in the land and engage in actions worthy of emulation by followers.”

Muhammadu Buhari GCFR (born 17 December 1942) is a Nigerian politician currently serving as the President of Nigeria, in office since 2015. He is a retired major general in the Nigerian Army and previously served as the nation’s head of state from 31 December 1983 to 27 August 1985, after taking power in a military coup d’état. The term Buharism is ascribed to the Buhari military government.
He unsuccessfully ran for the office of president of Nigeria in the 2003, 2007, and 2011 general elections. In December 2014, he emerged as the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress for the March 2015 general elections. Buhari won the election, defeating the incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan. This marked the first time in the history of Nigeria that an incumbent president lost to an opposition candidate in a general election. He was sworn in on 29 May 2015. In February 2019, Buhari was re-elected President, defeating his closest rival Atiku Abubakar by over 3 million votes.
Buhari has stated that he takes responsibility for anything over which he presided during his military rule, and that he cannot change the past. He has described himself as a “converted democrat”.
Muhammadu Buhari was born to a Fulani family on 17 December 1942, in Daura, Katsina State, to his father Hardo Adamu, a Fulani chief, and mother Zulaihat. He is the twenty-third child of his father. Buhari was raised by his mother, after his father died when he was about four years old.
