A former member of the Lagos State House of Assembly and President/Founder of Eleniyancares Foundation, Hon Segun Olulade, has charged President Muhammadu Buhari to urgently address the grave allegations raised by the governor of Benue State, Sam Ortom, accusing him of aiding Fulanis to overrun the country.
Olulade submitted that the agitations of Nigerians on the insecurity of lives and property in Nigeria at this point is genuine and deserves quick measures by the Buhari-led government.
Reacting to the spate of killings and kidnappings across the country, Olulade charged President Buhari to particularly respond to the sensitive allegations coming from a sitting governor over plans to encourage Fulanis to take over the country.
He said, “The allegation made by Governor Ortom is critical to our co-existence as a nation, and it therefore cannot be disregarded or left unattended to by Mr President. President Buhari’s silence over such indictment is unacceptable to the Nigerian masses. The Commander-in-Chief is the highest security office in the land, and as such, the President needs to make a frantic statement in defence of such weighty allegation and general security matters, otherwise, his silence over the matter, and of course persistent silence over critical security matters are a dangerous signal to national unity. Mr President should be the last person to be suspicious of on insecurity matters.”
The former lawmaker from Epe state constituency also commended Senator Smart Adeyemi for his boldness at expressing his position on current security lapses in the nation, despite being a member of the ruling party, insisting that such bold nad courageous move is democracy at work.
Urging Nigerian to separate politics, religion and ethnic coloration from the security issue facing the country, Olulade concluded that the future of Nigeria as a united entity is still very bright and favourable to us all, rather than tearing it apart along ethnic line.
