President Muhammadu Buhari has come under attack by Nigerians, particularly social media users over his statement that he is not in a hurry to act concerning the herdsmen attacks in Benue and other parts of the country.
Buhari had on Thursday, after a dinner at Pesidential Villa, explained that he is guided by historical antecedents reason why he is not in a hurry to take decisions on the killings in Benue State.
Reacting to this, Nigerians came hard on Buhari for quick action in proscribing IPOB as terrorist organisation, yet, failed to act against Fulani herdsmen.
Some claimed that Buhari was slow to action because he is a Fulani man and leader of Fulani herdsmen.
Here are some comments:
@Alex “uh u were in a hurry to label IPOB terrorists, You were in a hurry to arrest dasuki,You were in a hurry to destroy our economy,You were in a hurry to increase price of fuel in Nigeria,You were in a hurry to turn Aso rock to be for you and your family members both nuclear and extended family’s inheritance .Dear God, don’t forget to punish this man for me very well when he dies
@hilary “Mr president, as the chief security officer in Nigeria you need to be proactive when it comes to a matter of life and death ! There is no market where you can buy life. Many have gone on this issue, your silence is not golden !

@samuel “You dey hear your mumu president called Muhammadu Buhari why he didn’t act concerning fulani herdsmen carnage in Benue state for God sake when are we going to have a good leader in this country
@emmanuel “You acted immediately to prescribe IPOB terrorists group and you use operation snake dance by army to kill harmless citizens, now for you to act fast against your Fulani kinsmen who go about with guns and other dangerous weapons to kill people and destroying farmland you say that you are yet to act. Bear it in mind that the last day all the blood that is splash under your time will be answered by you.
@Bassey “But you move fast to Abia to kill unarmed people who were only agitating for injustice, thank God the whole world can clearly tell where you belong.
@evansdaniel “He is reflecting on history….hear the very clueless president? You sit there taking trash while people are being killed by fulani herdsmen?
@ben “Better act fast for Nigerians are running out of patience. Ur go slow is causing more harm than good.
@julius “Not in a hurry to do anything! I cant believe this! How long do you then need to do snything within a four years term mandate?
@chidiwhyte “you’re not in a hurry to do anything, even to protect lives when it matters? This is unbelievable sir! Delay is danger
@AbOki “The reason why you should go back to the farm. Those calling for your 2nd term need their brain assessed by a vet.
@constant829 “Your statement did not add up. It is either your inability to act, clueless on what do, or you are in full support of the unlawful killing by fulani herdsmen since the cows belong to cabals. You are not fit to be president because of your tribal politics.
@onakoye “If you like wait from now till next year na still foolish decision u go still make.
@stephen “But you rush down there and kill IPOB to call them terrorist organization
