It annoys me whenever people blame Buhari for Fulani herdsmen attacks – OBJ

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, yesterday said he gets really annoyed when Nigerians, particularly state governors, blame President Buhari for the various attacks being carried out by Fulani herdsmen in certain parts of the country. Obasanjo expressed his displeasure when he spoke at an agriculture seminar in Abuja organised by Lift Above Poverty Organisation (LAPO), a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO).

 

“Some of the words that have been coming out from our leaders, particularly from state governors, are not helpful; they are not helpful. This issue is not a federal issue and another thing I don’t like about it is that when you talk of Fulani herdsmen, people talk of the President. Now because the President of Nigeria is a Fulani man, then you would expect him to jump up and say this one is condemned and all that, no. That is not his job. And when people make comments like this, it annoys me. They say the President hasn’t said anything about this, that he used to be the patron of something…, but I believe that the ranching thing failed because the states and the local governments failed to do what they ought to have done.”he said
