President Muhammadu Buhari is in Kaduna State to help in the resolution of the crisis that has compelled the Governor Nasir el-Rufai administration to impose a series of curfews over the last few days.
Buhari is meeting various stakeholders, including traditional rulers, religious leaders and community leaders across the state.
Governor El-Rufai announced this via his verified Twitter handle.
He said, “The President is now at the Umaru Musa Yar’adua Hall, Murtala Square, to interact with Traditional rulers, Religious leaders and Community leaders from the crisis affected areas.
“On behalf of the government and people of Kaduna State, I wish to warmly welcome our leader, His Excellency President Muhammadu Buhari to Kaduna State. Mr. President, we are encouraged by your visit at this trying moment.
“We appreciate the consistent solidarity and acknowledge with gratitude the fact that with you as the President, Kaduna State is not standing alone.
“Your Excellency, what we are battling in Kaduna State is the legacy of nearly 40 years of violence and impunity. The current government of Kaduna State is persuaded that it has a solemn obligation to lead the state towards overcoming the tragic legacy of strife.
“Kaduna State is not the only diverse place on this planet, and the people who live in it must not remain trapped in a whirl of hate and division.”
