My conscience is clear on human rights abuses, Buhari tells US

 

President Muhammadu Buhari has reacted to allegations of high-handedness saying that his conscience is clear on human rights abuses in the country.

The president said that his conscience is clear with regard to upholding human rights in the country, saying “I took an oath and I am honoring the office”.

Buhari who received the newly-posted United States Ambassador to Nigeria, Ms Mary Leonard, told her that though it is not an easy task to work for the unity of Nigeria, he is doing his best.

He spoke to Leonard on Tuesday in Abuja when she visited the Presidential Villa to present her Letters of Credence to him.

Leonard, during the visit, had told Buhari that her country placed Nigeria on its watch list due to the humanitarian situation in the country. She stated that the action was taken as part of efforts to deepen conversation on the issue.

In his response, Buhari insisted that Nigeria was wrongly presented to the rest of the world because other countries, including the US, did not widen their sources of information on the country.

Buhari’s media aide, Garba Shehu, released a statement after the meeting, quoting the retired General as saying that some sources of information might be “misleading” and “self-serving;” adding that Buhari told his visitor that his conscience was clear in line with the oath he took to defend Nigeria.

“I know that those with access have created an impression of being marginalised. I sit here with a clear conscience. I took an oath and I am honoring the office, ”President Buhari said.

He recalled how he explained to President Donald Trump, during a visit to Washington DC, that reports on attacks on segments of Nigeria were not entirely true.

Buhari added, “It is not an easy task to work for the unity of the country, and I am doing my best. During your stay in the country, I am asking you to ensure that your sources of strategic information cut across.”

He advised the envoy to take her time to study Nigeria by getting facts on the situation of things in the country.
