SIR: Leadership should be responsive to variety. It is the rudimentary ingredient to fostering unity amongst variegated individuals. Where management turns into insouciant to variety, each different factor fails. This is the place the Buhari administration hit its nadir. The authorities abused, disregarded and mismanaged the delicate ethnic and non secular steadiness on which Nigeria pivots.
The ethnic and non secular taxonomies are very pronounced. IPOB in the south-east, supremacist teams in the south-west and south-south — and confusion in every single place. Some of these teams had been not there till after 2015 – owing largely to the divisive authorities which elevated nepotism to a state coverage.
As a matter of reality, there was Boko Haram and farmer-herder clashes prior to the Buhari administration, however Nigeria fell to the suzerainty of bandits beneath Buhari. The scale of pillaging and savagery is unprecedented. From Zamfara, Katsina to Oyo and Ondo, the blood of the innocents cries out. Some roads have develop into ghost avenues; villages and companies deserted – all as a result of of management failure which enabled the enterprise of banditry.
It is actually disturbing. With a disaster of lethal potential precipitating in the southwest over the siege by bandits in the area, it is time for the president to act – by initiating a course of of prevailing on the Fulani youths to desist from this path. Miyetti Allah, the Fulani socio-cultural group, has been instrumental in securing the launch of captives from bandits and in establishing hyperlinks for dialogue with them. For instance, the freedom of the Kankara schoolboys of Katsina was by dint of Miyetti Allah. The group has additionally intervened in different conditions. Can this group do the bounden responsibility of talking to the coronary heart of the Fulani youths?
A number of days in the past, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi met with some Fulani communities in Kaduna and sermonised them. About 600 bandits reportedly agreed to give up their firearms. This is management. Really, this precarious event in the life of our nation requires management by all Fulani leaders. They should stand up and speak to their gained.
Our unity ought to matter to us. There are individuals working additional time to plunge Nigeria into disaster. They revenue from blood and construct their political belongings from anarchy. We ought to not let these blood sellers have a good time. We have misplaced many souls to violence already; we should always not lose extra valuable souls to a disaster of attrition.
