Drastic measures are needed to tackle ethnic clashes – Cleric

Drastic measures are needed to quell ethnic wrangling in the country in order to ensure sustainable peace and harmony.

A cleric, Evangelist John Goody stated this in an interview with radio Nigeria correspondent in Ibadan.

The cleric, who commended the president for his first speech when he assumed office during his first tenure, said he needed to redouble current efforts at stemming the spate of insecurity in the country.

 Evangelist Goody explained that as the country’s first citizen, President Buhari was a father figure to whom everyone look up to irrespective of ethnic or religious background.

On the recent clash at Sasa market, Ibadan, the cleric appealed to youths to give peace a chance, and not to allow themselves to be used as agents of destruction.
