Herdsmen Killings: You Are The Terrorist, Group Blasts Fayose

Herdsmen Killings: You Are The Terrorist, Group Blasts Fayose

A pro-President Muhammadu Buhari organization, the Democratic Youths Congress for Buhari 2019, has condemned recent media comments credited to Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose over Fulani herdsmen attacks in Benue State.

The National Chairman of the group, Honourable Kassim Mohammad Kassim, who briefed newsmen in Owerri, Imo State, declared that the comments of the Ekiti State Governor on the herdsmen killings and other national security issues were inciting and unbecoming of a leader.

We recall that Fayose, in an interview, had urged the Federal Government to declare the Fulani herdsmen a terrorist organization and also mobilize local hunters in his state to resist herdsmen invasion.

But the Group argued that the Governor’s actions and utterances were capable of escalating the security crisis, adding that, “it comes to us as a great dismay that Fayose as a leader of that repute has never in his life created a solution, which was why he was elected in the first place but rather has been inciting one section of the country against the other.”

Kassim, who is also a member of the Nasarawa state House of Assembly representing Akwanga South Constituency, described Fayose’s utterances as uncultured conceived to achieve cheap political agenda.

“It is obvious that Fayose’s statements and antics are politically motivated to blackmail President Buhari’s administration ahead of the 2019 election, but no amount of campaign of calumny can stop Buhari’s re-election because majority of discerning Nigerians are impressed with his performance.”

He, however, condemned the killings, while calling on the Federal Government and the Benue State government to step up measures to ensure speedy resolution of the crisis.

 “In fact, we are members of the Democratic Youths Congress for Buhari 2019, we condemn the attack in Benue State as unwarranted and we call on the communities and the Fulani herdsmen to resolve to their issues in a manner that peace will return and we also want to draw the attention of the Federal Government and entire Nigerians to the day-to-day activities of Governor Fayose and also to monitor some of his activities because we are beginning to see that he is part and parcel of those sponsoring crisis in this country as a result of some of his malicious statements.

“It is a disgrace to this country that as a governor of a state, he lacks the attitude, the culture and the character of a leader because most of his actions have been inciting and instigating crisis in the country.”

The group further absolved President Buhari of complicity in the Fulani herdsmen killings, describing the “President as a caring leader who took an oath to protect and defend this country, saying  “if we are to be sincere to him, we will agree that he is trying his best to put an end to the security challenges in the country but that cannot work if we have saboteurs who are living with us who instigate crisis and live a luxurious life, while the poor continue to suffer.

“We call on Nigerians to identify such leaders and come out openly to say no to their activities and political ambitions for this country to grow.”

The Group, however, advised the Benue state governor, Samuel Ortom, to build synergy and collaboration with neighboring states to ending the herdsmen menace rather than apportioning blames.

“The FG and the Benue State government should also open talks directly with the herdsmen who live in the bush than relying on negotiations with the leadership of the Fulani herdsmen in order to get to the root cause of their grievances. This will help to resolve the issues once and for all,” they concluded.
