It’s a confirmation of what the former Deputy Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, Dr. Obadiah Mailafia earlier speculated. It’s a confirmation of what the former Chief of Army Staff in Goodluck Jonathan era, Onyeabor Azuibuike Ahejerika pointedly said in 2015”
” Don’t forget that in 2016, Nazir El-Rufai, Governor of Kaduna State told the nation that he went out of this country to pay money to foreign Fulani who are coming to kill his people”, the National Publicity Secretary of Afenifere Yinka Odumakin went memory lane to unearth all these when he spoke to Punch newspaper on Thursday.
While this remark is made about El-Rufai, other Northern Governors have come out in the open to give insecurity promoters some pats at the back: Amongst the Northern Governors who provided convenience for militia groups are the Governor of Bauchi State, HE. Bala Muhamed who said herdsmen should be allowed to carry AK47 riffle while the Governor of Zamfara State, HE. Bello Matawalle said all bandits are not criminals.
