“The President (Muhammadu Buhari) cannot afford to be so lethargic over matters of security. For, the truth be told, the handling of the issue of Southern Kaduna, as in all cases involving Fulani herdsmen, has promoted a strong sense of foreboding among people who suspect the President’s love for them is conditional, if not peripheral or secondary.”
“The great cost, human and financial, that went into the claimed defeat of Boko Haram, that insurgent group that brought untold hardship to families and groups in the Northeast and other parts of Nigeria, should not be allowed to be expended in and on any other part of the country.”
“The President need be advised to desist from anything that will hamper his promise to give his best to Nigeria and Nigerians. Therefore, there is the need for him to add speed to his response to matters of security in particular if only to dispel the suspicion of indifference to the plight of those at the receiving end or alleged sympathy for one of the parties.”
