As Nigerians especially the people of Benue, Rivers and Kwara state, respectively continue to express total dismay over the wanton and mindless killings in the Country under the watch of President Muhammadu Buhari, the former Senior Special Adviser to former President Goodluck Jonathan on Youth and Student Affairs, Comrade Jude Imagwe, yesterday posited that Buhari has been ‘kidnapped’ by powerful cabal in the presidency to advance their political and selfish interest to the detriment of the lives of the citizens.
He also reminded Mr President that since the bulk stops with him his administration will remembered with the many killings in Nigeria and not the so called cabals or Ministers even as he urged him act as father to all Nigerians irrespective of tribe, religious or political affiliation.
He described as unacceptable the high rate of insecurity and government inability to bring to book perpetrators of these heinous crimes.
He lambasted those who had held the view that former President Jonathan’s government was hijacked should buried their heads in shame and submitted that “Buhari’s government was not only hijacked but kidnapped without any demand of ransom from it abductors”
The former NANS President also opined that with the obvious lack of direction by the Buhari’s led APC administration in providing purposeful leadership and better life for the Nigeria people, rather they are being slaughtered on a daily basis by suspected Fulani herdsmen.
He said more worrisome despite the Killings in Rivers, Benue and Kwara state, Buhari’s New Year’s broadcast message failed completely to address the carnage of his Fulani’s kinsmen thereby leaving Nigerians more hopeless and dejected adding that the President had failed to justified the votes of the Nigeria people.
Imagwe, who spoke to newsmen in Benin City, the Edo State Capital , however urged the Nigerian voting masses to use their voter’s cards to send the Buhari’s government packing come 2019 Presidential election.
While sympathizing with victims of killings across the Country stated : If we say the then Jonathan’s govt was hijacked, Buhari’s govt has been kidnapped in a way that they are not asking for ransom. It is wickedness that States like Benue, Rivers and Kwara suffers the mayhem on festive period and what Nigeria heard was for the president to be announcing his campaign Director General”
“what that means was that the President is not thinking of Nigeria. He is not in charge for a government in power. Look at how Nigerians are suffering with fuel scarcity, the APC government have told Nigerians many lies”
“It is sad and we are also worried that Nigerians had to go through the yuletide with agony and pains because of the fuel scarcity which still persist into the new year with the Federal government not having a definite Roadmap to ending the malaise.
“This is the only administration where top government officials are involved in corruption because the government dwells on falsehood and haunting down Political opponents in thename of fighting corruption.
“ The challenges to the corruption allegations that had plagued some top high ranking officers of this administration, the inability of Mr. President to address same leaves a sour taste in the mouth of many Nigerians”
Continuing he added “Nigerians have seen that Buhari is not a saint, he has allowed himself not to be hijacked but kidnapped. He is going to be remembered for how Benue and Rivers has been turned into killing field under his watch”
“If we are not careful 2018 will witness more Hunger Because Fulani’s have chased away farmers. Benue that is known as the food basket of the nation but sadly the basket have been set ablaze and broken. It is sad. He added.
