Worried by the continued killings of the innocent citizens by the Fulani herdsmen across the country, the National Coordinator of Campaign for Good Governance, Prince Obaro Roland Unuafe, has called on the civil society organizations, Academic Staff Union of Universities ASUU, human rights groups, student bodies, Christian Association of Nigeria CAN, to stand up and protest against what he called genocide against Nigerians.
Speaking with journalists in his office at Asaba, Prince Obaro said Nigerians are being taken for granted and also being hoodwinked into believing that the massive killings going on has no connection with the ruling All Progressive Congress or the President Muhammadu Buhari, pointing out that President Buhari, prior to the 2015 general elections, had boasted that should he lose the election, baboons and the monkeys will be socked in blood.
“And now in victory are Nigerians not being docked in blood? Nigerians thought President Buhari was a true nationalist but unfortunately the reverse is the case. The killings started gradually when he assumed office but it later graduated into massive killings that can now be described as genocide by the president kinsmen.”
He recalled that whenever there is killings by the herdsmen the president won’t react but he was quick to deploy security agents to South East and South South when Nnamdi Kalu and Tompolo were agitating against the marginalisation of their people.
“Shouldn’t he now deployed the security against the Miyetti Allah, who have laid claims to the massive killings? President Buhari is a fascist, sadist and a political bigot. The CNN reported that President Mohammadu Buhari is being linked with the ongoing killings. Buhari claimed the killer herdsmen are foreigners who were trained by the late Gadaffi, but the Miyettti Allah is laying claim to the killings in Plateau because they lost 300 cows, Prince Obaro said.”
Prince Obaro wondered why should the presidency canvass for ranches across the 36 states as the solution to the ongoing killings, arguing that the best way solution is for Nigerians to mobilise and protest against orchestrated act of genocide against Nigerians.
“Nigerians should rise up and move to the streets. In the time of General Sani Abacha Nigerians were alive. Where are the ASUU, CSOs, Human Rights activists? What has suddenly happened to them? Is Nigerians suffering from the state of amnesia? Nigerians must wake up and move to the streets to protest against the genocide,” he added.
Continuing: “The former President Goodluck Jonathan was clueless and know nothing about governance, but what of President Buhari, is he governing? APC promises exist only at the realm of dream. They have not been able to fulfilled any of their promises. ”
He, however, called on the Delta state government to be on alert, saying Asaba is sitting on a keg of gun powder.
According to him: “The way and manner the shoe makers, iron condemned people, job men from the core north are surrounding the capital territory is worrisome. I call on the state government to be security alert,” he warned.
