Nigeria should refrain from tribal politics – Uganda President

President Muhammadu Buhari and other politicians and public office holders has been advised by the President of Uganda, Yoweri Museveni, to stop playing politics influenced by tribal sentiments, in order for the country to achieve necessary growth and development.

Museveni stated this while delivering a lecture at the National Defence College, Abuja.

“It is high time Nigerians stopped saying ‘I am for the Yoruba; I am for the Hausa’,” he said.

The lecture, which was for the inauguration of Course 26 participants, was titled, ‘Sub-regional cooperation and the stability of member states: Economic Community of East African States in perspective.’

According to Museveni, progress will be made when various tribes work together peacefully.

“Where I come from, we have many cows and milk. But my kinsmen can’t buy my cows because they also have their own cows. I have cows. They have milk. I have milk. The people who help me to make money are the people from other tribes.

“Human resources are more important than natural resources. Look at Japan. The country has no oil, but it is one of the most prosperous nations in the world.

“It has human resources driving development in the country.”

The Commandant of the NDC, Rear Admiral Adeniyi Osinowo, said the school was committed to investigating factors that impacted on African security and development with a view to proffering credible strategies towards addressing them.
