President Muhammadu Buhari has said that Nigeria could face another social crisis if the two million people, mostly women and children, displaced by insurgency were not properly taken care of.

The President raised this alarm on Tuesday at a meeting with the world leader of the Tijjaniya Islamic Movement, Sheikh Sharif Ibn Mohammad, at the State House, Abuja.

“Government is faced with the problem of repairing schools, health centres and whole towns. We must repair their schools and recruit teachers otherwise they will become tomorrow’s Boko Haram,” the President was quoted in a statement by his spokesman, Garba Shehu.

President Buhari commended the religious group for the prayers they had rendered for three days in Yola, Adamawa State for the recovery of the economy and peace in the country,

The President said that the problem oil production was experiencing in the country and in the global market had forced the imperative of agriculture on Nigerians.

“We are learning the hard way. The mistake we made was to abandon agriculture. We came at a time of difficulty the country has never experienced since the Civil War,” he said.

He assured Nigerians that his administration would not relent in the effort to achieve self-reliance and security for the nation.

In his remarks, Sheikh Mohammad commended Buhari’s sense of justice and concern for the people of Nigeria.

He assured the President that the Tijjaniya movement was in full support of the administration and would continue to pray for its success.
