National Coordinator, Concerned Advocates for Good Governance, CAGG, Olusegun Bangbose, Esq, vows that he would lead a massive protest against the President, Muhammadu Buhari, over ethnic crisis and security challenges in the country.
Bangbose opines that it’s very disturbing that Buhari, who is the Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces, has refused to address the nation on these serious confronting the country.
Speaking further, Bamgbose said the long years of a relationship that has existed between the Yoruba’ and Hausa for years had not been rumpled following the Oyo state clash between the two ethnic groups.
“The painful thing about the ugly scenario is that our President has blatantly refused to constructively come up with ways to prevent the looming disaster,” Bamgbose said while addressing a press conference in Abeokuta.
He added that the Yoruba now perceives the Fulani as their enemies and vice versa. He pointed that this wrong and unacceptable.
“This conflict is like an ill-wind that will blow no one any good. I’m very much concerned about the innocent Northerners affected by these clashes.
“I’ll also commend the Governors who came from the North to visit Governor Makinde on the issue of Shasha market. Dialogue remains the best way to resolve any conflict.
“No one is in doubt that we have bad eggs among the Fulani herdsmen, but there should be a way to deal with them and spare the innocent ones of the pains they are passing through.
“After considering this ugly trend, I’ve decided to inform our President to address the nation or get prepared to order my arrest for leading a peaceful protest.
“Whether Fulani or Yorubas or Igbos, we are Nigerians. Lives must be protected at all costs. I won’t sit in the comfort of my house and watch Nigerians being turned against themselves.
“I will soon lead a protest if Buhari won’t address this security issue. Enough is enough. The time to ACT has come,” Bamgbose, a 2023 presidential hopeful, said.
