So, what if President Buhari is the father nepotism? Why does he want us to now unseen all what we have seen? He should be proud of his legacy and own up to nepotism as his trade mark.
The president’s Special Adviser on Media recently raised an alarm where he claimed that some online and foreign medium had been procured to smear the president by accusing him of not being in-charge of the country. He also alleged that part of the plot is to accuse the president of nepotism and of marginalizing a particular ethnic group.
Hello, are my missing something? Certainly, the president has lost control of the country . Even the most blind can see that Nigeria is like a plane on auto pilot. We are increasingly becoming like Somalia. We are having many skirmishes and risks an imminent and full-blown civil war.
One of the reasons why Mr. Buhari was elected president was to restore law and order. He was a retired decorated Army Major General. He was reputed to have comparative advantage on security than his predecessor. He said, ‘I will fight insecurity and will lead from the front’. He never the less added ‘I have given more to my country, than my country has given me’. But for Buhari, I never knew of any other person living or dead who feels he owes no debt to his nation and yet got elected as president. What right do we then have to demand good governance or to be treated equally and fairly from him?
Upon his inauguration, his media aide in a widely circulated publication hyped that ‘a new sheriff is in town and crime has taken flight’. In the contrary, the country became one of the un-safest places in the world to live, hosting three of the world’s deadliest terrorist groups. When you add his ill- advised designation of IPOB as a terrorist group, it means that under his watch Nigeria is officially home to four terrorist groups.
Arguably, the country has become a jungle and a failed state, held by the jugular by terrorist groups. Most pronounced are the activities of Fulani militias, baptised as herdsmen, bandits or insurgents to shield their real identity and motive, yet they never hid the fact that they are Fulani militias. They have made the entire country unsafe and taken possession of most forest and forcefully dispossessing natives of their ancestral land. The violent criminals have killed and destroyed in the most brutal form pitting innocent Fulani herders against the rest of the country. Obviously, Nigeria cannot continue like this.
Many people are beginning to think that living together without dignity as one Nigeria is worthless, that if the country is too big to be managed from the centre, then let the country restructure. But the president is unmoved. In his mindset, he owes no debt to Nigeria. His loyalty is to the Fulani.
Again, to accuse President Buhari of nepotism is simply saying the obvious. A lot of people have been speaking about it and against it too. More fair-minded people who love the country and wants her unity preserved have spoken against the president’s nepotism in no mistaken terms.
In his inauguration speech in 2015 had said ‘ I belong to everybody ,I belong to no body’. Retired Col Abubakar Dangiwa Umar , a thorough bred Fulani and one of the finest officers God gifted this country in 2020 penned a widely publicized letter to President Buhari. In the letter titled ‘Mr. President belong to all of us’- a sarcastic reference to his 2015 inauguration speech, he warned that the president’s lopsided appointments favoring some and frustrating others, shall bring ruin and destruction to the nation.
Retired Col Umar patriotically wrote: ‘Mr. President all those that wish you and the country well must mince no words in warning you that…
