Reno Omokri, former aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, has stated that herdsmen do not want to ranch their cattle because they were following the steps of President Muhammadu Buhari.
In a series of tweets Monday morning, Omokri accused the Buhari-led government of treating the killings by herdsmen with levity.
He wrote: “The reason herdsmen don’t want to ranch their cattle may be because of President Buhari’s bad example. He ranched 150 cows in 2011 and by 2015 their number was still 150. Are his cows gay? No Fulani herdsman wants to be like their kinsman Buhari. They want increase not stagnation!
“Go to farm and Fulani herdsmen may kill you. Go to market and inflation may kill you. Go to fuel station and fuel scarcity may kill you. Go to hospital and doctors strike may kill you. Go to police and SARS may kill you. I‘ve never seen a Change that brings death like Buhari/APC!
“In 2016 Lai Mohammed told us that killer herdsmen are not Nigerians. Yesterday, the Presidency said it is Islamic State that kills Nigerians in the name of herdsmen. If both statements are true, why does the Buhari government want to give herdsmen Nigerian land as cattle colony?
“Study the statements/comments from Buhari and his spokesmen and it is full of ‘we will’. That a govt which has spent almost 3 years in office still deals in ‘we will’ instead of ‘we have’ is concrete proof of the failure of President Buhari and the APC! Change the change in 2019!”
