BUHARI SHOULD PROVE THAT HE IS THE PRESIDENT OF ONE NIGERIA —OKOGIE



With the ongoing activities of Fulani Herdsmen in Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhar must prove that he is the president of one Nigeria by ensuring that nobody is above the law.
Catholic Archbishop Emeritus of Lagos, Anthony Cardinal Okogie has urged President MuhammaduBuhari to urgently demonstrate convincingly that there is only one Nigeria – a Nigeria of the law-abiding, a Nigeria where no one is above the law, a Nigeria where those who break the law are treated according to the law irrespective of their political affiliation.

In a write up titled: “Butchers in Benue: What a Nation!”, the former National President of the Christian Association of Nigeria,   CAN,   lamented that Nigeria is daily wobbling from one major crisis to another.
With particular reference to the dastard killing of innocent citizens in Benue State by Fulani herdsmen,   Okogie lamented that “what obtains in Nigeria at this point in time is the unmitigated tragedy of spectacular failure of government. But, instead of a serious attempt on the part of the government to mend its ways, its spokespersons find a hobby in insulting Nigerians with dissenting voices, while preparations and propaganda for re-election have already begun.
“It is reprehensible that while Nigerians are disturbed at the butchery in Benue, the President and his party are campaigning for votes in Abia State. We are thus being told in a rather crude and arrogant manner that the fortunes of the politician take precedence over security and welfare of citizens of Nigeria. Politicians who truly rely on the votes of the people to be in office respect the people because they know that the day of reckoning shall surely come,” Okogie said.
