Patriot Patrick Eholor does not understand why the president usually ignore the wrongdoings of Fulani herdsmen, whether in the guise of kidnappers, terrorists, rapists, or Boko Haram.
He wonders why President Muhammadu Buhari would usually quickly go after other ethnic groups if they take steps or just speak of violence, but would ignore Fulanis no matter how violent.
In this interview, he warns that the Fulanis who are a minority, are provoking Nigerians of other ethnic nationalities and might eventually provoke a civil war that will disintegrate Nigeria.
He also speaks on other sundry issues:
With all the herdsmen killing in the north and south, President Muhammadu Buhari has been very silent. It’s very clear it’s deliberate. Fulani is about 18 million in population, and we know we are a multi ethnic country. They don’t just dehumanize southerners, but also dehumanize the Hausa people. They claim that Hausas are also inferior to them. If you look at their history, Uthman Danfodiyo was not a Nigerian. He migrated from another place to conquer, to kill, to maim the Hausa people and took them as slaves.
Now they have been able to conquer the north, they want to conquer the south. My fear is that, what happened when the Biafra war was fought is nothing compared to what’s coming now.
If Buhari won’t stop Fulani herdsmen, Biafra will be child’s play compared to the civil war coming
I pray we will be able to avert it. I prays that when it comes, we will be able to settle and end it. I pray that these people organize and hold a referendum so that everybody can go their separate ways.
If you look at the numerous offices, it’s only Fulani that are given to hold. Defense, immigration, judiciary, customs, police and all key positions in the federal government. They are the ones occupying it. If you look at them very well, you realize that these people are not very smart because most of them are not educated. If they know the meaning of education, they will not have millions of children as almajiris. It’s time to remind our so called southern leaders that they have sold us out for penny. They must have a rethink, otherwise, they are either with us or against us, that’s the way it’s going to be.
Thy cannot continue to sell Edo state and the south south to fulanis. And we are going to tell our governors to be prepared and organize hunters vigilantes to go into the forests and flush out all the Fulanis. If they want to to live with us, they must live in the towns, but we will never accept them to live in the forests. If they want to live in the forests, then they should pack their bags and go back to their own forests and live there. We need to be aware of what happens in our forests. They are not doing us a favour, we are doing them a favour. The majority of them either do shoemaker, or they cut grasses, or do security jobs. We know these things.
We are not afraid. It’s time to resist this their domination and send them packing. If they think they can kill us, then they have a surprise waiting for them. It’s impossible to kill us all.
For the past four months now, I have been trying to do passports for my house help, and for my children. What they do is that they racket our passports. The Head of Immigration would distribute it to different people and tell them this is what I want in return.
Is it not preposterous that in a country as big as Nigeria, we cannot get our passport in 5 days? Whereas in Ghana, Cotonou Republic of Benin, not even talk of Canada or so, once you apply for a passport, you get your passport in the mail. So what’s wrong with us? Because we have people who sit upon our collective intelligence, year in year out. They hoard passports and give them to people from Chad, from Niger Republic, and we that are Nigerians don’t have it. It has to stop.
Ambassorial Positions for past Service Chiefs
The idea of President Buhari giving the past service chiefs ambassadorial positions is questionable. I am going to go to the court, I am going to make sure that I fight it vigorously, so that they never get that. Because why he is giving them is so that they can have immunity and avoid prosecution by the international courts of justice for all the crimes against humanity they perpetuated against Nigerians.
End SARS and the Lekki toll gate
The people who are talking abut EndSARS in Lagos have exposed themselves. The people who are grieving have not gotten justice, but they have the effontery to say that they want to start collecting money from the toll gate.
We are going to occupy that place from 13th of this month. There is no going back. It’s now or never.
They should look for a way to implement the five point demand of EndSARS protesters, and have a rethink about ever collecting money from the toll gate because of what append there, until everything is resolved.
Osinbajo has been caged for a very long time. They should do us a favour and save him from the humiliation his godfather Tinubu is suffering today, so that would it also not affect him.
Printing of vital documents
Nigeria has a government printing and minting company but it doesn’t print currency in the country. They don’t print passports in the country, they source it out, and that’s a great security risk. The same is for the national ID card. They also source it out to private companies. The reason is because those who are in power know nothing about their jobs. They get their positions through nepotism and favouritism. They should stop, or else we will cease to have a country soon.
If you remember the report by America which said that Nigeria will cease to exist during Goodluck Jonathan’s time, they were right, but didn’t get the time right. What the saw is still there. I think Nigeria is a failed state, nothing is working. Nigeria is going to be like Somalia, if nothing is done about it, God forbid.
Enough is enough from these leaders. They have undermined the people, forgetting that without the people, there is no them.
