President of the Republic of Nigeria Muhammadu Buhari has asked his colleague Presidents and other colleagues in the International Community to seek facts before they ignorantly comment on issues especially in Nigeria.
The President of Ghana and Chairman of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) yesterday October 21 was forced by Ghanaians on social media to issue a statement on the happenings in Nigeria after several protesters were killed by the army in the West African country.
The President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo called for peace and assured the International Community that Buhari was working to resolve the existing issues in the country.
But addressing his country today, President Buhari believes that most people commenting in the raging issues are not in sync with the true happenings in the West African country and are commenting based on the falsehood spread on social media.
To him, it’s imperative that world leaders and the International Community abreast themselves with the real issues on the grounds and stop commenting based on hearsays.
He said “To our neighbours in particular, and members of the international community, many of whom have expressed concern about the ongoing development in Nigeria, we thank you and urge you all to seek to know all the facts available before taking a position”.
Adding that “or rushing to judgement and making hasty pronouncements”.
