After the recent rise in terrorism across Nigeria, Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, NSCIA, has begged Muhammadu Buhari to declare State of Emergency on security.

NSCIA, under the leadership of Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar III, disclosed this at a World Press Conference in Abuja on Wednesday.

The group lamented the rise in killings and bloodshed in the land, calling them appalling and horrible.

NSCIA then blasted religious leaders who partook in a prayer walk against terror recently, saying the move was only a childish blame game and it oozed hypocrisy.

The group added that less Christians have actually suffered in the hands of the terrorists than Muslims.

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.
