Elder statesman and a Chieftain of Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, Ayo Adebanjo, has slammed President Muhammadu Buhari for his refusal to act in the ongoing killing of innocent Nigerians by suspected Fulani herdsmen. He said the President should be ashamed of himself for being the number one citizen of the acclaimed giant of Africa. Speaking with New Telegraph, the Yoruba leader expressed doubts on the possibility of holding the 2019 general elections under the nation’s present structure.
He said, “The Fulani herdsmen are causing confusion in some parts of the country; Southern Kaduna, Benue, Adamawa, etc. What has he done? Is it not a shame that the president of a country who was a military man before is in a situation where there is a breakdown of law and order in some parts of the country? Buhari should be ashamed of himself as president of this country. He should be ashamed of himself. Asked if Buhari should seek reelection despite his alleged underperformance, Adebanjo said, “If he restructures the country, he could go and seek for re-election and people will decide. I don’t believe in 2019 elections if there is no restructuring. I am of the view that election should not be held until the country is restructured. If not, there would be no peace. I know he will do it by force but God is in the control.”
