Sule Lamido: Fulani Being Persecuted Because Of Buhari
Sule Lamido

Former Governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido has expressed that the unfortunate dislikes, attacks, and persecution of Fulanis in Nigeria today are because of President Muhammadu Buhari.

He expressed that President Buhari, a Fulani man has woefully failed to protect and provide good governance for Nigerians.

“They are reading Fulani through Buhari, who is also a Fulani tribe. They failed to understand that not every Fulani that supports Buhari. Even me, I am a Fulani tribe but did not vote for Buhari,” Lamido said.

“But, what Fulani 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.

“Today Nigerians are so blindfolded by the hate and apparent dislikes of Fulanis because of President Buhari’s misgovernance, forgetting that not all Fulanis voted for him and or likes him.”

Lamido went further to query the reason those who helped the president secure power in 2015 have kept mum over the travails of ”Buhari’s people” in the south-western region.

“Why those from South, who brought Buhari to power in 2015 failed to defend his people. Where are the Tinubus, Fasholas, Amaechis, Ngiges, Soyinkas, Rochas among others, why can’t they protect Buhari’s people?” Lamido said.
