Afenifere Accuses Buhari Of Tribal Bigotry Against Igbos by PeaceforNigeria: 10:46pm On Jun 10
The Yoruba Pan Socio-Political Group Afenifere has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of taking delight in ridiculing Igbos by his unpresidential utterances.

The group’s Secretary General Chief Sola Ebiseni in a statement in Akure in reaction to the President’s interview on Arise as regards IPOB, Afenifere said that ” the President takes delight in ridiculing the Ndigbo which he used IPOB to represent.

“Thus, to him, the Igbo and their territory is just a dot in a circle of the map of Nigeria, which even if the secede could exit to nowhere since the elders and youths of the South-South had assured him of not being part of the secessionist agenda.

“He couldn’t have been reacting to the IPOB but the Igbo who he said had businesses everywhere.

“His utterances were very unpresidential and in the mode of common expressions with some unidentifiable northern organisations.

Afenifere statement entitled ” Our irredeemable President” reads ” Buhari has sheer contempt for Nigerians as an unrepentant tribalist.

“First, his arranged interview on Arise Television is not a substitute for the clamour of Nigerians that the President, as the father of the Federation, should speak to Nigerians in this critical times.

Secondly, his engagement was full of lies, inconsistencies, contradictions and utter disrespect for the ethnic nationalities including their elected governors.

” He is pathetically unschooled in the constitution which he often claims to guide him in spite of its manifest flaws.

According to the group ” his engagement was full of lies, inconsistencies, contradictions and utter disrespect for the ethnic nationalities including their elected governors.

On the lopsided appointment in the Armed forces, the group said ” the President’s claim that his appointment in the armed forces is based on merit and seniority and not to satisfy geopolitical zones, is a violation of the letters and intendment of the provisions of sections 217-220 dealing with the Armed Forces of the federation and appointments thereto.

“Specifically, Section 217 (3) provides that the composition of the officer corps and other ranks of the armed forces of the federation shall reflect the Federal character of Nigeria.

“In Section 219, all the powers given the President including the appointment of Service Chiefs, is subject to the Act of the National Assembly ensuring the reflection of the Federal character.

” Even his latest appointment of the Chief of Army Staff, is flawed particularly on seniority. The constitution never contemplates nor approve of the situation under Buhari where 90% of the commanding heights of the armed forces and security architecture will be from only northern Nigeria and only the two zones of North East and North West.

In any case, anyone familiar with the history of Buhari leadership will appreciate that he is the only Nigerian leader, even among military Heads of state, whose government government, himself, second in command as Chief of staff Supreme headquarters (Idiagbon) and top echelon were all northerners. It was after his death that many Nigerians knew Idiagbon was Fulani of Ilorin.

On the governors, the group said that ” the President owned up to the statements of Garba Shehu, his most uninformed spokesman, that the ban on open grazing by the Governors was illegal and he could not make a new statement that would contradict him.

“He is delighted that Governors are Chief Security Officers without any security powers, yet he asked two of the South West Governors to exercise a non-existent powers to deal with terrorists herdsmen who he acknowledged bear arms, even as foreigners , against Nigerian citizens.

“It is pitiful that our President has no solution rather than the braggadocio of re-opening grazing routes in states by repossessing such lands for his beloved herdsmen.

” Let the President be told that the Yoruba people are solidly behind our Governors that not an inch of land in our territory will be carved out for any grazing reserves or cattle Colony.

The group said that ” If the President has any respect for his much vaunted constitution, he will know that he has no such power over land use. Nemo dat quod non habet.

One thing about black people in general is that they don't heed to signs.
If Nigeria fails to break in peace now that there is still a chance for peace, Mark this on your wall "in few months time Nigeria will beg for break up but won't see it"
Since this thing started, Nigeria has been applying force but what has the force gotten any of us?
UGM and more to follow.
If you think the evolving of the madness stops at UGM, then you are joking.
This was exactly the same stubbornness that Britain played with Ireland that they ended up being the ones calling for break up.
Heed to signs, black people

1. The MUTUAL suspicion and disdain between Fulani and Igbo was once more echoed by President Buhari by equating Igbo to IPOB. Of course, he knows the difference but he was just rubbing it in there.

2. By emphasizing that South South elders and youth leaders went to him 'nicodemusly' in the night to distance themselves from Biafra cause, Pres. Buhari was smartly applying the age-old principle of "divide and rule". It is a way of saying you supported and voted former Pres. Goodluck Jonathan but his South South has thrown you under the bus.
Truth be told, however, the 'divided house' stance of South South may be attributable to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's sense of self-alienation, autocracy and unilateralism. He has failed to reach out to other ethnic nationalities in the South South even as he arrogantly and unilaterally includes them in his version of map of Biafra in 2021.

3. Both Pres. Buhari and AGF Malami are fully aware that cattle ranching is the way to go but it is MYSTERIOUS why they are insisting on open grazing and even trying to apply 1960's policy in 2021 inspite of increase in population and developments that have taken place over the years. Worse still, no thoughts are seem given to the thousands of people that have been killed from herdsmen/farming communities clashes.

Afenifere should fvckin learn to mind their business......even the SS doesn't put mouth in the matter of their cousins, afenifere stupidly doing oju aye.

Rub em by the balls before trapping it in a vice.......from reno to ffk to afenifebi.... nobody really gives a flying fvck about 5%er nonentities. Only playing opposition by telling the fvckers what they want to hear..... afenifere doesn't represent the larger interests of the Yoruba's, and it's shown every election day.

Igbos and Yoruba's will, never ever be one politically.

Fulani/Hausa and Yoruba's will, never ever be one politically.

Alliances are only made based on each situation.

Buhari has confirmed to other Nigerians what many of us knew long time ago. This government is operating an official anti Igbo policy. We knew it would happen because, Buhari, Kingibe, Funtua and many others were the last breed of the fulani mafians that organised the pogrom after the Sarduana death. These guys never left the 1960s.

A new and emerging democracy like Nigeria was never in need of him. Now he has set the country backward several years socio politically.

Some fools are rejoicing that he dissed the Igbos. Yet, for the whole duration of his speech he never mourned the over 160 Nigerians that were murdered in the past two weeks by the same herdsmen he is promoting a grazing area for. Nigerians are dumb sha.

Now we know why the formation of ESN drove Buhari mad. They stood between his Fulani brothers and their conquest of Igboland.

He should continue, even Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon was Humbled. You say igbos are not relevant and yet you don't want them to go. Or is it an Igbo man that caused his weak erection and premature ejaculation problem that is making him and Aisha to be having series of problems making her go to Dubai for more than six months to..... He should go and meet Dr Bembela or Iya segun to help him. No wonder He hates Kanu so much after that video. Buhari should take it easy before He develops stroke.

I don't involve in tribalism but honestly buhari is the worst leader i have seen since I was born. What makes a leader is the ability to separate your emotions from your office. He just talked like a typical nairalander that tribalism have eaten deep. He always take every opportunity to insult Igbos. Referring to every Igbo as ipob. "This one that they are opening business everywhere" , how can a president talk like that. Even Igbos that don't support ipob are tag ipob. Is good shaa, the day every Igbo man will support ipob is coming. He said that Britain made mistakes when drawing boundaries, that they include his brothers in Niger republic. But he said that Niger deltas are not Biafra. Double standard. They cunningly carved out Igbos from South East, feed them lies and tell them that they are not Igbos but he still sees fulanis in another country as his brothers not minding that those fulanis speak different language to them. Na turn by turn life dey do shaa.

Buhari is a tribal bigot, how do you expect him to be that vocal with herdsmen, most of whom are from his tribe?

I have advised you to remove tinubus name if you want to involve in tribalism, you are doing him more harm than good even among Yorubas. you are making those that don't hate him to do, you are making him look like a tribalist, and religious bigot. I saw where you were blasting some Yorubas because of Yoruba Nation. They will conclude that tinubu is against them. Most of your opinion align with the fulani instead of your tribe. Is dangerous but you may not know now. Open another account for tribalism if you must involve in tribalism and use tinubu advocate to promote him. Simple advice.

We are not and we will never be.

I still remember how Igbos were taunting Yoruba with ibarapa killing, and someone is saying we are one.

Yorubas and Igbos can not work together, we are different people. We are breaking away from Nigeria to form Oduduwa republic, to hell with southern Nigeria republic, any Hausa-fulani or Igbo constituting nuisance in our land will be dealt with.

They should all go back to their landlocked desert.

Oduduwa republic now.

I would have love to join the bandwagon by scolding Mr President on his statement. However IPOB is different from the Igbos in general.

Considering IPOB unrepentant and unwarranted hatred for him (Buhari) I feel they deserve such from him...gbas gbos! Action and reactions are equal and opposite.

PMB has tolerated them for long, he's also human. Personally i wouldn't have tolerated such unwarranted bile for that long cus I have short fuse like ffk.
If i don't hate you and you said I hate you, and went further to act in that guise by turning yourself to irredeemable nuisance in my affairs. I'll give you back in the language that you'll understand. Shikena!
