'Buhari Is Nigeria's Most Tribalistic Leader' - Southern Leaders React To DG Of DSS Appointment

In a statement released Thursday, some elders under the aegis of the Southern and Middle Belt Forum accused President Muhammadu Buhari of dividing Nigeria more than any other leader in the nation’s history.
 
the forum condemned Buhari’s removal of Matthew Seiyefa, acting director-general of the Department of State Services (DSS), and alleged that the act shows his “vote of no confidence in one Nigeria.”
 
In the statement, the forum described the removal of Seiyefa, who hails from Bayelsa state and who was the second in command to Daura, as a “disregard for the conditions precedent for a united Nigeria and an inclusive country.”
 
The statement signed by Edwin Clark, among the other leaders, read: “The I-don’t-care and in-your-face attitude of the President in restoring Nigeria security architecture to the provocative situation of having 16 out of 17 service chiefs from his corner of the country is a clear demonstration of the fact that Nigeria for General Muhammadu Buhari is no more than his section of Nigeria and the resources and the constitutionally mandatory votes from other sections of the country,”

Quote
“Since 1960,Nigeria has never had a leader more sectional ,narrow,parochial ,and tribalistic like the current President who went on a global stage to divide Nigeria into “97 % and 5%”.

“We have  looked critically at the profiles of the Acting DG who was removed and the one Buhari just appointed and it is crystal clear that Bichi does not come with any experience close to that of Seiyefa.

“The only qualification for this appointment is therefore only the rabid nepotism of the President which has seen him always masking personal and sectional interest as national interest.

“Besides, Bichi is an out-of-the -system man drafted by Mr Lawan Daura in the days of his nepotism rule at the DSS. The next six most senior persons in line of succession at the DSS after Seiyefa are  from our findings are all southerners which may explain why the President picked a man who already retired from the DSS to lead because of ethnic affinity .

“That the President went ahead to deep himself further into the cocoon of ethnic irredentism in making this insensitive appointment shows clearly that he does not care a hoot about the unity ,cohesion and oneness of Nigeria.

“We reject this appointment and we do not shy in telling Mr President that he no longer pretends that the country is one under him.”

Buhari Nepotisim is the reason patriotic Nigerians are running away from APC. I will not be surprise if Buhari loses in Kastina State in 2019.

This is the beginning. When he comes for the second time. he will fully come out from his shelf. The youths of the south saw the danger earlier on, the elders of the south betrayed them. The elders want money and power in exchange of their right to belong. Unless the south speak with one voice and recognise one another's effort  to liberate the trodden, they will continue to be servants in Nigeria and eat from the 'waste food'. It is time to rise and fight for your right and freedom to give peace a chance in our lives, homes and make the world a better place to live. God created the world for us to enjoy it and not to cry and regret coming into this particular undemocratic Nigeria.

Well am not surprised to see or hear this on media I only blame Nigerian that vote an herdman and a farmer to rule over them. Buhari is nothing but a stupid mistake Nigeria have made in history a president not even with a clue to leadership.
