Fulani herdsmen tainting Buhari’s administration —ex-IYC leader

Published

on

A former President of the Ijaw Youth Council Worldwide, Mr. Udengs Eradiri, on Saturday, said Fulani herdsmen were, through their killings, staining the administration of their clansman, President Muhammadu Buhari.

Eradiri, who is the immediate past President of the council, in a telephone interview with our correspondent, wondered why Fulani herdsmen were on a killing spree at a time their leader is the President of the country.

He lamented that the herdsmen, by their violent disposition, had cast doubts on the ability of Buhari to achieve one of his cardinal campaign promises — security.

He alleged that the Fulani leaders were committing a conspiracy of silence by allowing the herdsmen to engage in violence against the country.

Eradiri argued that when an Ijaw clansman, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, was the President of the country, leaders in the Niger Delta, including himself, supported him to stop the crisis in the region in order to avoid jeopardising their clansman’s government.

On Benue killings, the former IYC President urged Buhari to talk to his Fulani brothers on the need to embrace peace and stop the violence.

Eradiri said, “President Buhari must sit up. The Fulani people, a stock where the President comes from, cannot be doing what they are doing without the support of some highly-placed individuals.’’
