BREAKING: Buhari appoints Ahmed Audi as NSCDC CG, nominates Haliru Nababa as NCoS bos
The Southern and Middle Belt Leaders Forum, SMBLF, has expressed shock over Sheikh Gumi’s continuous request for Amnesty for bandits.
Sheikh Gumi had at various times claimed that violent bandits terrorising Nigerians across the board were fighting against the injustices meted on the North.
The Middle Belt Leaders Forum said it was not surprised at the unveiling of Sheik Gumi’s real self at every publicity opportunity he gets but maintained that it is the Fulani and the core North who are doing pure injustice to the rest of Nigeria.
Yinka Odumakin (South West), Chief Guy Ikokwu (South East), Senator Bassey Henshaw (South-South) and Dr Isuwa Dogo (Middle Belt), in a joint statement, noted that “Part of those injustices must have been electing Buhari twice as President in spite of his scant regard for the sensitivity required of a multi tribe country like Nigeria.”
The forum explained that Nigeria for almost six years has soaked up all manners of lopsidedness, nepotism and running of the country like a Fulani Republic.
“As part of the injustices to the north, Fulani herdsmen have been killing people with reckless abandon in all parts of Nigeria with the administration defending them and giving them soft landing with the open bias of Mr President,” the statement alleged.
It further alleged, “Fulanis are daily pouring into Nigeria to change our demography and Nigeria is doing more in Niger Republic than Nigeria at the moment with resources from non-Fulani areas.”
It said that “The injustices Nigeria has done to the North is so much for the bandits to do what they are doing to the rest of us and for Buhari to be looking the other way. We want to know from Gumi if the Hausas are protesting the injustices Fulanis are doing to them and the rest of Nigeria or if it is Nigeria that is doing any injustice to the north.”
The forum noted that they know that the Fulani bandits are doing crimes in all non-Fulani communities but told Gumi not to confuse them with North except he is on deception all along.
“It is a known fact that the main injustice in Nigeria is the skewed federalism that allows the North to be in almost total control of oil and mineral resources in the Niger Delta and the VAT from other parts of the country to the disadvantage of host communities.
“The Nigeria Ports Authority in Lagos is under the control of a Fulani lady just like most of the agencies in charge of oil and gas in an unhidden agenda of Fulanisation of Nigeria,” the forum observed.
It explained that it is one of the major reasons SMBLF is in court to challenge the lopsided arrangement.
It is the Fulani and the core North doing pure injustice to the rest of Nigeria,” the forum said.
