A former senior Special Assistant to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Doyin Okupe, has said that herdsmen killings going on in various parts of the country, are enough to send President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress, APC, out of office in 2019.
According to him, that was exactly how the APC used Boko Haram activities as a propaganda to see off the President Jonathan’s administration.
Okupe said he is not a fan of President Buhari and does not wish him and the APC well, adding that its not in his interest to help them out of the situation.
He wrote on Facebook, “In his administration, adding n the last few days i have sat back to reflect on the perplexing matter of the so called Fulani Herdsmen attacks nationwide.
“As an opposition politician it is a veritable political tool that if craftily manipulated and orchestrated in a sustained manner, is enough to send this Government packing in 2019.
“Just like Lai Mohammed and his team of propagandist hanged the Jonathan administration employing the Boko Haram insurgency and the dubious chibok girls affairs.
“I am not a fan of President Buhari and i certainly do not wish the APC well. So it is not in my interest to assist either to get out of an insolvable and potentially dangerous political quagmire.
“But this is our country and our fatherland. It must not always be an irresponsible and desperate struggle for power all the time at the expense of national cohesion and survival.
Something, to my mind just does not add up on this Fulani herdsmen attacks.
“Classically it has become ubiquitous. It comes up randomly anywhere and everywhere. Benue, Taraba, adamawa, plataeu,kaduna, zamfara, enugu, anambra, Edo , Ogun, ekiti, kwara etc.
“The style is as confounding as the viciousness that is typical of the orgy of these attacks.
A strange accompanying phenomenon is the associated arson of farmlands and houses.
