Appoints Amaechi DG, Campaign Committee
President Buhari’s handling of the security situation of the country has generated criticisms from prominent Nigerians. Former Minister, and Chieftain of the PDP, Femi Fani Kayode is leading the crusade on Twitter. In a series of tweets on his verified handle, the fierce critic accused the President of refusing to bring his Fulani kinsmen to justice because their victims are Christians.
While quoting UK’s Independent Newspaper, Kayode said “In the past year Nigeria has experienced the greatest increase in deaths from terrorism, with 7,512 deaths reported – an increase of over 300 per cent”.
APC Finally Making Sense – Kayode
Meanwhile, Fani Kayode has applauded the bold statement credited to the Benue State APC Chairman, Comrade Abba Yaro. Yaro has described the recent herdsmen killings as a clear case of ethnic cleansing. He said it is an attempt to spark civil war
Fani Kayode in his reaction said, “finally someone in the APC is talking sense. I said this over two years ago and was insulted for it. Eyes are now opening. I guess its better late than never”. He added that the President is “using Fulani herdsmen to wage a silent genocidal jihad. 120 innocent souls slaughtered like “point and kill” catfish and the very next day he appoints a DG for his 2019 pres. campaign organisation”.
Ortom Talking Like A Child – Reno Omokri
Likewise, Reno Omokri, a former aide to President Jonathan has jumped on the bandwagon. The U.S based pastor criticised Buhari for placing his 2019 reelection over the lives of citizens.
In view of this, he said “At a time he should be thinking of appointing a General to head a task force to stop the killings of Nigerians by herdsmen in Benue and other places, President Buhari is more concerned with reappointing Amaechi as Director General of his re-election campaign. Which way Nigeria?”
He recalled that Buhari in 2000 protested to Gov Lam Adesina demanding the “immediate stoppage of the killings, justice & compensation to the Fulanis. Where is that anger Buhari displayed now that Fulanis are killing Nigerians?” He quizzed.
Taking a jab at Ortom, he said,
“I laugh when Gov Ortom says ‘I call on the FG to arrest the leadership of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore’. Why is Ortom talking like a child? Can a Mafia godfather arrest a mafioso to please a non mafioso? You are asking the Grand Patron to arrest the people who made him Grand Patron!”.
