According to the group, President Muhammadu Buhari’s pampering of terrorists continues to haunt the country.
The pan-Yoruba socio-political group Afenifere has called for the renegotiation of Nigeria.
Ayo Adebanjo, leader of the group, said Nigeria’s structure needs to be renegotiated as the Nigerian state negotiated before independence in 1960 is dead.
Adebanjo also knocked on President Muhammadu Buhari, accusing him of spoiling terrorists.
He said the Islamic cleric, Ahmed Gumi, who promoted amnesty for the bandits, is only echoing Buhari’s own views before he became president.
Speaking in Lagos at a press conference on the theme: ‘Repairing Nigeria, before the fall’ on Thursday 11 November, the leader of the group, Ayo Adebanjo, said: “The whole country is burning.
The North East was already on fire before the coming of Buhari, its peoples made pawns in the power games of the northern elite, which allowed Boko Haram to rot, indeed, Buhari protested the assault on Boko Haram, and for those who might have paid attention, Gumi’s speeches are simply mimicking what Buhari used to say before taking office in 2015. But what was confined to the northeast has now become a Pannigerian.
“The Buhari regime treated them with childish gloves and cheerfully labeled them as bandits, businessmen, vandals and even recently as local kids. The bombers on the tracks, who were clearly intent on the derailment of a passenger train, are labeled as vandals in a clear advertisement of the complicity of the Buhari regime in the terrorist-led insurrection, which devastates Nigeria ”.
Retired Navy Commodore Kunle Olawunmi said that the security services have filed a report in Buhari since 2017 and that a list of the names of the major sponsors of terrorism in Nigeria is one of the many pieces of information in that file. Many of these positively identified terrorists and sponsors of terrorism are today in the government at the highest level, and many others serve senators and governors ”.
The group also claimed that the Nigeria negotiated and accepted by the founding fathers was dead.
“To be sure, the Nigerian state negotiated before independence in 1960, the one that was born and named on October 1, 1960, is long dead. He was fatally wounded in January 1966 and then massacred in July 1966. His funeral services were held between 1966 and 1970.
The Frankenstein that was put together in place of the dead nation that had been agreed has survived so long in the wake of repression, lies, illusions and delusions.…
“But Buhari finally killed him with his infinite arrogance, manifest incompetence and vile ethnic-religious program, with which he is dangerously strangling the unbearable Frankenstein”.
