Action Democratic Party (ADP’s) National Leader (South-south), Sentor Roland Owie, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration of double standard to have declared the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) as a terrorist group without doing same to fulani herdsmen.
Owie who stated this yesterday, accused the Buhari administration of not walking the way of justice and equity; else it should immediately declare Fulani herdsmen, who have continued to kill and maim innocent Nigerians in the north central and southern parts of Nigeria, as a terrorist group.
According to the statement: “Now that IPOB has been declared ‘Terrorist group’, President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government of Nigeria should immediately declare Fulani herdsmen, ‘Terrorist group’.”
Owie said that President Buhari has been mismanaging the affairs of the nation and has continued to pretend that “all is well.”
According to him, “I urge President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government to walk the way of justice and equity in handling the affairs of Nigeria and stop pretending that all is well.
“The gravest mistake of non-equitable administrations all over the world is the denial of wrongdoings on their part. Unfortunately for such administrations, they forget that God cannot be mocked.”
Owie stated that everyone should all realise that when those who are supposed to govern well, decide to be “unjust, unfair, and discriminate, they set themselves against God,” pointing out that severe consequences must follow.
He therefore counseled that governments should be just and equitable in order to please God and man, stressing that if they are not, they do not only become irresponsible, but also, history would not forgive their imprudence and posterity will judge their mistakes.
According to him, “Gravitation will help a person if he builds the side of his house straight and plumb; but gravitation will oppose him and make his house fall down if he builds it out of plumb.”
