President Muhammadu Buhari, on Monday, declared that it often appears as if the Nigerian government is fighting two wars on terror: against Boko Haram and Amnesty International.
Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President, on Media and Publicity, in a statement, explained that the Federal Government is increasingly concerned about the role that Amnesty International is playing in the war against terror in Nigeria.
According to the statement, while President Buhari cherishes and encourages the noble ideals on which institutions like Amnesty International are founded, the organisation’s operations in Nigeria seem geared towards damaging the morale of the Nigerian military.
The statement reads:”The obvious bias and inaccuracies in Amnesty International’s recent country reports on Nigeria risk Amnesty’s reputation as an impartial international organisation.
President Buhari appeals to the leadership of Amnesty International to scrutinise its advocacy in Nigeria, especially as it relates to the war against terrorism” Shehu noted.
