Former governor of Jigawa state, Alhaji Sule Lamido, has called on ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo to retract the statement credited to him that says “Fulanization and Islamization” of West Africa is the agenda of Boko Haram insurgents.
The former governor made this known through his media aide, Mansur Ahmad, via a press release.
“If it were said at a non-religious venue to a non-religious audience, maybe; it might have been more tolerable. Please, sir, don’t let your disappointment with sitting the President turn you into a bigot. You must not abandon the national stage. The cracks along the various divides in our National cohesion are already turning into huge gorges.”
