GEJ Dealt With Fulani Herdsmen Crisis (El-Rufai Berated GEJ For Doing So) by Physicist(m): 8:31pm On Jan 11, 2018
Jonathan Dealt Decisively With the Fulani Herdsmen Crisis

Former President Jonathan wishes to express his condolences to the government and people of Benue, Kaduna, Taraba, Adamawa and Nasarawa states, over the recent spate of killings occasioned by herdsmen/farmers clashes.

His heart bleeds for the sufferings of Nigerians and he calls on the authorities to do everything in their power to put an end to these needless killings.

Having said that, let it be known that we find the statement by the Presidency stating that 756 Nigerians were killed by Fulani herdsmen in two years under the government of former President Jonathan as a mischievous assertion by a callous Presidential spokesman who thinks that death is something to be trivialized.

For the avoidance of doubt, let it be known that the figure of 756 is wrong. But the issue is not that it is a false figure, the issue is that former President Jonathan was not inactive in the face of Fulani herdsmen killings during his Presidency.

While in office, the former President knew that the capacity of the Nigerian police would be challenged by the sophistication of arms available to the herdsmen and so after he was elected President and sworn in on May 29, 2011, former President Jonathan summoned a National Security Council meeting and ordered that Fulani herdsmen attack must be decisively dealt with.

In July 2012, the Plateau state government reported that herdsmen killings had reached a head in Barkin Ladi Local Government Area leading to tens of deaths of Nigerian citizens by Fulani herdsmen, many of whom were not even Nigerian citizens.

Then President Jonathan, when briefed about the situation insisted that there would not be such impunity under his leadership and immediately ordered the army and the Air Force to go to the affected communities and fish out the perpetrators and bring them to book.

The military immediately obeyed the then President’s orders and sent troops and helicopters to Barkin Ladi Local Government Area. They ordered all residents to leave their residence for temporary accommodation provided for them so they could conduct a joint air and ground operation to flush out the armed herdsmen who had been suspected of killing innocent Nigerians.

The residents complied and the soldiers went in and not only did they clear the area, they made arrests which led to trials and convictions.

We wish to remind Nigerians that when this episode was being carried out, it was precisely members of the opposition who later became the All Progressive Congress that heavily criticized then President Jonathan’s orders.

In fact, a prominent member of the APC and now the Governor of Kaduna State and a known confidante of the President, Malam Nasir El-Rufai tweeted his now infamous tweet on the 15th of July 2012 threatening that “We will write this for all to read. Anyone, soldier or not that kills the Fulani takes a loan repayable one day no matter how long it takes.” (his exact words).

So the question Nigerians need to ask instead of allowing themselves to be distracted by the statement from the Presidency is this: Are Nigerians now repaying the ‘loan’ that El-Rufai threatened to make Nigeria repay?

If the then President was not active in decisively sending the military after herdsmen, why would El-Rufai have been so pained to have made such a statement? Let it be known that the former President views herdsmen who kill unprovoked and with the intention of advancing their own economic and other interests as terrorists, pure and simple. Not only did he treat them as terrorists, he also put the military on high alert to protect Nigerian lives.

In conclusion, we state that any group who kills to advance their agenda is a terror group and failure to address them as such is a disservice to the Nigerian people

Where? In secret?

Even this present administration. The police have been parading 'fulani herdsmen' allegedly terrorising travellers on the Abuja Kaduna road but you never hear of court trials or convictions but on national tv You'll see them paraded with weapons etc

The system is broken

Today it is ’Atiku financing herdsmen’ tomorrow it is ‘herdsmen killed 756 people under GEJ’ the day after, it is ‘herdsmen invasions are communal clashes’.

A govt. running around for excuses. Blaming everyone else but themselves. Each time I want to insult the person of Mr. President, I remember the old saying that ‘a people deserve the leader they get’. We Nigerians sometimes think we are the smartest bunch on planet earth.

This is not rocket science, APC under Buhari controls Boko Haram and the herdsmen. In fact there is no difference between Boko Haram and the herdsmen.... they only moved from Sambisa into their terror locations.

But I don’t blame APC, Buhari or El-Rufai because they have consistently made their sympathy towards terrorism an open discussion.

I blame the docile, illiterate, nepotic, tribalistic, 15million idiots that voted them in.

so you dey fear and you don't want to be a Fulani victim and your judgement is always clouded with bias. FYI I don't call black white like you. Why can't you be objective for once. Human lives mean nothing to you because none of your relations were affected.
The truth is if you keep playing politics with everything sooner or later it will get to your doorstep.
