2019: Atiku threatens Nigerians, says Herdsmen Killings will continue if Buhari is re-elected President

On Tuesday, the Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, said killings by herdsmen would continue in the country unless President Muhammadu Buhari is voted out of office in 2019.

Atiku, who previously stated that he was the only one to put and end to Boko Haram and Farmers/Herdsmen crisis in the country has once again reinstated that voting president Buhari again, means the crisis won’t be stopped.

PUNCH newspaper reported that ,the presidential aspirant while reacting to Amnesty International’s report on herdsmen/farmers’ clashes which indicted the Federal Government for failing to stop the killing of 3,641 Nigerians by herdsmen in the last three years.

In a statement by his Special Assistant on Public Communication, Mr Phrank Shaibu, the former Vice- President described the Presidency’s response to the report as “tepid.”

He said, “Unless Nigerians vote out the All Progressives Congress administration, killings by herdsmen will continue and ultimately spark series of ethno-religious crises that will be irreversible.

“It is now very clear, like Amnesty International said in its report, that the Federal Government under President Muhammadu Buhari has displayed gross incompetence and has failed in its duty to protect the lives of its people who have witnessed many preventable deaths.

“This situation has put the nation on the verge of disintegration.” Atiku said the Federal Government lacked the capacity to stop the security challenges confronting the nation which he said had left thousands of Nigerians either killed or maimed. The killings, he said, were scaring away foreign investors.

He further added that, ‘’After every attack, either by herdsmen or by kidnappers, the government will vow to get the culprits and punish them. Then more deaths will occur and the government will repeat its vow.

“This is not reassuring to the people of Nigeria as well as foreigners who may want to do business in the country.

“Therefore, it is now clear that in spite of their best efforts, Buhari and his party, the APC, cannot stop the herdsmen and other criminal elements currently terrorising the country.”

Atiku said it was frightening that the Buhari administration was not doing anything in the face of the World Bank’s report that claimed that Nigeria will soon become the world capital of underage deaths.

  1. In this great pattern of things you’ll receive a B+ for hard work. Where exactly you confused everybody was first in your facts. You know, people say, the devil is in the details… And that could not be more true right here. Having said that, allow me reveal to you just what exactly did do the job. Your article (parts of it) is certainly highly convincing which is probably why I am taking the effort in order to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, while I can see a jumps in logic you come up with, I am not necessarily certain of exactly how you appear to unite your details which in turn help to make the actual final result. For now I shall yield to your issue but wish in the future you actually link your dots much better.
