Nigerians Dying, Buhari Should Go – PFN President, Kukah, Ighodalo
Prominent Nigerians have berated the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) over the growing insecurity in the country.
They spoke at different events across the country.
The President of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, Bishop Wale Oke, said the President had failed to secure Nigerians and should be removed if it would bring the desired peace and security to the country.
Oke, who is the Presiding Bishop of The Sword of the Spirit Ministries, Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State, said these in a message he delivered in the early hours of Saturday at a vigil organised by his church.
A statement by the PFN president’s media aide, Mr Kayode Oladeji, quoted the cleric as saying this during a vigil held at the Precious Cornerstone University Garden of Victory, Ibadan.
The university is owned by the church.
With killings going across the country on daily basis while security agencies remain helpless, Oke said Nigeria had become a war-ravaged country.
He said, “The President should be removed if that would pave the way for the desired peace in the country. In the 1960s when Nigeria fought a civil war, the eastern part of the nation was the theatre of war. Sadly today, everywhere in Nigeria is a theatre of war with killings and bloodshed going on in the country every day.
“Some wicked people kidnapped some students and demanded N800m for their release; they killed them. The government did not lift a finger and you are telling me that the President has not failed. Buhari has failed. For the first time, I have found myself praying that God should remove Buhari.
“They kidnapped students without the government doing anything and you are telling me that the government has not failed. Are you saying we cannot move against an incompetent government whose security apparatus has collapsed?”
The cleric accused the Buhari regime of treating killer herdsmen, with kid gloves.
He said the Fulani people who were less than 10 per cent of the population of the country were being fingered in most of the killings across the country and the President did not do anything about it.
The bishop further said, “It is a shame that government could not protect those in Internally Displaced Persons camps which led to the massacre of a number of them in Benue State. The Presidency is now attacking Governor (Samuel) Ortom who was weeping over his people that were slaughtered.
“Give us peace by all means even if it means removing an incompetent and a failed President. Oh God, do it quickly and give us peace by all means. Give us a quick change at the top level of government of Nigeria.”
He invoked the wrath of God on the troublers of Nigeria and their sponsors in a congregational prayer he led
Nigerians dying, our leaders’ statements saying nothing to us – Kukah
The Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Matthew Kukah, on Saturday said Nigerians were dying in the face of hardship and insecurity, and the silence of the leaders, whom he said had not shown empathy for the plight of the citizens.
Kukah, who made this known while speaking on the topic, ‘We need to exhale,’ at the May 1 edition of The Platform organised the Covenant Christian Centre, lamented that Nigerians no longer get the sense that their leaders understand their pain.
“A government must develop a sense of empathy and I have said it several times and I do not mean anything negative. Everywhere you turn, this is what Nigerians are saying, that people are dying and we don’t get a sense that those who govern us understand and feel our pain because we have not seen them at our funerals; we have not seen them at condolence visits; we’ve not seen them whether by telephone call or whatever.
“Empathy is not sympathy; empathy is at the heart of who we are as human beings. That is, it is what makes you go to greet somebody who is dying and you put your hand over their shoulder and you tell them it will be okay. Empathy is the feeling of the sorrow, the pain of the other person

JUST IN : ‘I Killed Job Seeker, Ini Umoren in Self-Defence’ – Uduak Akpan
The suspected killer of Ini Umoren, the fresh graduate who met her death while hunting for job, says he took the lady’s life in self-defence.
Speaking with journalists while he was paraded by the Akwa Ibom Police Command on Friday, Akpan Uduak said he had wanted to have sex with her but she hit her and he returned the favour.

“I asked her that I would like to have sex with her before she left. She agreed and gave a condition that I would have to use condom, which I did.
“While I removed the condom, she became furious and removed the nearby stabilizer to hit me on the head… While I was bleeding, in order to stop her, I used the stabilizer to hit her. When I hit her, she fell.”

He told me he did something wrong and that he was sorry. I blamed him: ‘Why did you do this? You are not my only child; I have two other children and they are women. If anybody does this to your sisters would you be happy?’ He said no.”
