Osinbajo Blames Tensions In Nigeria On Religious Leaders

On Wednesday, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo accused religious leaders of inciting unrest in the nation.

Osinbajo reportedly said this when he met with religious leaders at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, according to a statement released by his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Laolu Akande.

He said: “One of the fault lines that we have is religious divisions and the tensions that are created when religious leaders do not act responsibly enough in bringing together men and women of different faiths.

“One of the major issues that our country has to face is unity of our people – unity of the ethnic groups and unity of the faiths.

“I am really excited about what you are doing. The interfaith community in Kuje is not just a model for this zone, but a model for the country.

“Everyone has a right to their faith. Constitutionally, there is freedom of worship, but it is leadership that must deliver on the most important thing; the government must deliver on services and development issues.

“Development and civic leaders like yourself must bring this to the attention of the government, as you are doing, and must champion these causes on behalf of the people. And I think that this is a real model for the rest of the country to follow.”
