NIGERIA: What kind of unequal union is this – Reno Omokri roars
Reno Omokri, the then media aide to Goodluck Jonathan has thwarted the president’s Special Spokesman, Garba Shehu over issued Miyetti Allah to leave some Western part of Nigeria.
Pastor and motivational counselor, Omokri on Wednesday via his page, ‘Build Up Nigeria’ said what kind of unequal country is Nigeria that President Mohammadu Buhari’s administration protects Fulanis but appears differently to other regions.
Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, Chairman of the South-West Governors’ Forum, had days ago issued a seven-day ultimatum to all herders within the rural areas to vacate to the urban cities.
“All Forest Reserves in the state are to be vacated by herdsmen within the next seven days with effect from Monday 18th January 2021.”
Akeredolu’s executive order to herdsmen in all the state forest reserves came after Gen. Kunle Togun (retd), Chairman, Western States Security Network, raised an alarm that spies working for the kidnappers and bandits operating in the region are using most commercial motorcycles.
Togun said the spy-motorcyclists infiltrated into the Soth West states through porous country’s borders.
The Senior Special Assistant, Garba noted that the action is contrary to the constitution if he would unilaterally send herdsmen packing in a bid to fighting insecurity.
He remarked that asking the MACBAN to leave the forests can trigger a chain of events the constitution tries to guard against.
Responding to Shehu’s statement, Omokri noted that it shows Igbos and Yorubas, as Christians, can be sent out of their shops and farm for sale of alcohol in Kano and pig in Sokoto states respectively.
“Yet an Igbo man does not have the right to live and sell alcohol in Kano. A Yoruba man does not have the right to run a pig farm in Sokoto. Zulum can accuse Christians, but Kukah can’t comment on the state of country?
What type of unequal union is this? Alcohol is haram, but killing innocent Nigerians by herdsmen is not haram? We can do our own in your land, but you can’t do your own in our land. We are either all equal or we all go our separate ways!” He added.
