Nigeria’s minority ethnic groups deserve better treatment—Atiku tells Buhari

*Buhari, Atiku

Former vice president, Mr. Atiku Abubakar has reacted to President Mohammadu Buhari’s address to the United Nations General Assembly, saying minorities all over the world deserve the cooperation of majority groups.

In a statement from his media office in Abuja, Atiku said Nigeria could show example to the world by placing high priority to the treatment of its minority tribes.

He said President Buhari did the right thing by drawing the UN’s attention to the sufferings of Myanmar’s Rohingya people, cited by the UN as perhaps the world’s most persecuted minorities.

He congratulated the president on a successful outing at the 72nd Session of United Nations General Assembly in New York on Tuesday, September 19, 2017.

Atiku aligned with Buhari’s message of gratitude to the international community for their efforts in the Lake Chad region which has helped bring succor to Nigerians affected by the scourge of terrorism.

“It is my sincere desire that arising from President Buhari’s speech, the UN will increase its support to Nigeria and her neighbors in the Lake Chad Region as we redouble our efforts to rid the region of the scourge of terrorism and restore peace and prosperity to a once thriving zone”, he said.
