Fellow countrymen, please have you heard any statement of condemnation from the Minister of (In)Justice, Abubakar Malami, SAN, the #Presidency, the Inspector General of Police, Miyetti Allah and other Northern Elders since asronists and alleged killer herdsmen invaded Igangan in Oyo State yesterday to kill, maim and set houses ablaze, including a palace?
Yet, when Southern Governors (with the exception of Ben Ayade of Cross Rivers ) banned open grazing to save lives and property, Malami immediately condmned it, followed in tow by the Presidency of Muhammadu Buhari.
On the issue of insecurity in Nigeria, President Buhari has failed to show effective leadership. That is why the war is failing and many parts of Nigeria are in crises.
Effective ledership is fair, firm and decisive. Effective leadership dissects issues swiftly/dispassionately and profer solutions that engender lasting peace, progess and harmony.
Ranching is the obvious way out of this particular mess. Why would any reasonable government pointedly oppose an obvious solution? Stop sucking the bloods of innocent #Nigerians.
