Sule Lamido Berates Tinubu, Fashola Over Treatment of Fulani
Obiajulu Joel Nwolu

Sule Lamido, a former Governor of Jigawa State has called out the former governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu, claiming he has been indifferent over the alleged attack on Fulanis in the Southwestern region of the country.

He disclosed this on Thursday in Kano while receiving 27 newly elected local government chairmen of the Peoples Democratic Party,PDP, in Jigawa at his office, Vanguard reports.

Lamido expressed displeasure with the treatment of Fulanis in the country, alleging that they are being persecuted, especially in the especially the southwestern because they are Buhari’s tribe.

He also criticised the Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, his counterparts in transportation and labour ministries, Rotimi Amaechi, and Chris Ngige for not defending Fulanis in their region despite being with President Buhari.

He said, “They are reading Fulani through Buhari, who is also of the Fulani tribe. They failed to understand that it is not every Fulani that supports Buhari. I am a Fulani by tribe but did not vote for Buhari.

“What the Fulanis are going through in this country is unfortunate. We are being persecuted, abused, endangered, called names, just because Buhari is from us. This is not fair. This is unjust.

“Why have those from the South, who brought Buhari to power in 2015, failed to defend his people in their region? Where are the Tinubus, Fasholas, Amaechis, Ngiges, Soyinkas, Rochas, where are all these, why can’t they protect Buhari’s people?”

Lamido also stated that Fulanis, like other Nigerians, have the right to live in every part of the country.

His statement followed the recent seven-day ultimatum to Fulani herders to vacate forest reserves in Ondo state by Governor Rotimi Akeredolu. The governor had cited the rising spate of insecurity in the state.

Similarly, in Oyo State, a Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo, more popularly known as Sunday Igboho, issued an ultimatum to Fulanis to leave the state or face severe consequences.

Lamido reaffirmed his stance that Buhari would not hand over power to Tinubu in 2023, alleging that the rapport that existed between the president and the APC national leader was over.

He said, “Buhari used Tinubu to become Nigeria’s president. Likewise, Tinubu used Buhari to fulfil his political desire. So, it is a mutual interest that has been fulfilled. So, the agenda has been concluded.

“The southerners used Buhari to attain their political goals. Those goals are political and economic goals, such as appointments and infrastructure, which is now happening there.

“So, it is now over. It was a mutual arrangement and all desires had been fulfilled by both parties.”
