Human rights abuse: My conscience is clear – President Buhari tells US envoy, Mary Leonard
President Buhari (retd.) has told the newly-posted United States Ambassador to Nigeria, Ms Mary Leonard, that though it is not an easy task to work for the unity of Nigeria, he is doing his best.
Buhari added that his conscience was clear with regard to upholding human rights in the country, saying, “I took an oath and I am honoring the office. He spoke to Leonard on Tuesday in Abuja when she visited the Presidential Villa to present her Letters of Credence to him.
Leonard, during the visit, had said that her country placed Nigeria on its watch list due to the humanitarian situation in the country. She stated that the action was taken as part of efforts to deepen conversation on the issue. In response, Buhari insisted that Nigeria was wrongly presented to the rest of the world because other countries, including the US, did not widen their sources of information on the country.
