Buhari’s style endangers democracy, says Enugu bishop

The Archbishop of the Anglican Communion, Enugu Province, His Grace, Most Rev. Dr. Emmanuel Chukwuma, has warned that President Muhammadu Buhari’s style of governance may lead to the collapse of democracy in the country.

The bishop, who said the President was acting like a ‘military democrat,’ warned that the Buhari government might not last.

Chukwuma spoke in an interview with our correspondent in Enugu.

He noted that majority of Nigerians were not happy with the nature of the appointments being made by the President.

Chukwuma noted that the conflict between the Presidency and the National Assembly was overheating the polity.

The clergyman expressed concerns that the Federal Government had not taken any decisive action to address the menace posed by armed herdsmen in several parts of the country.
