…Allocate Sambisa Forest to Fulani Herdsmen


For sometime, there has been an Islamic handwriting on Nigeria’s wall. But now, some retired army generals and Christian elders, among them Gen. Theophilus Danjuma rtd, have woken up and warned the Jihadists to stop interfering with governance.

Speaking under the name: National Christian Elders Forum (NCEF) after a meeting in Abuja, Gen. Joshua Dogonyaro (rtd), Gen. Zamani Lekwot (rtd), Gen. T. Y. Danjuma (rtd), and a group of eminent Christian elders, including Elder Solomon Asemota, Elder Shyngle Wigwe, Dr. Chukwuemeka Ezeife and Elder Moses Ihonde said they are alarmed at the audacity and impunity of the Islamists in Nigeria and their attempt to forcibly transform Nigeria from a democratic nation into an Islamic Theocratic State. They observed that every key position in security and education is held by Muslims from the North in violation of the Constitution.

They said all the sectional appointments in security and education are not mistakes but intentionally designed to place Islamists only in strategic positions in Nigeria.

Warning our leaders to avoid a pending implosion they said, “The real problem with the country is that JIHAD has been launched in Nigeria and Islamists that have been interfering in the governance of the country using “Taqiyya” (approved deception) as “Stealth/Civilization Jihad” and Boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen as violent Jihad, are relentless in their pursuit of eradicating democracy in Nigeria.”

They  expressed sadness that Nigeria was drifting towards a needless conflict that could culminate in another war, if not well managed.

“The objective of the Islamists (Political Islam) is to supplant the constitution of Nigeria with Sharia ideology as the source of legislation in the nation. The conflict between democracy as national ideology and Sharia as a usurping ideology is responsible for the crisis unfolding in Nigeria. This, they said in a statement signed by its chairman, Elder Solomon Asemota, SAN.

The NCEF noted with concern the budding constitutional crisis in the country, and said the threat of another major ethnic conflict, occasioned by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) call for secession and the response of Arewa Northern Youths for the eviction of the Igbo from the North, the agitations for fiscal federalism and resource control, among many other regional agitations, could set the country on the path of war the nation could not afford at present.

They urged the Federal Government to allocate the expansive Sambisa Forest to Fulani Herdsmen to feed their cattle.

“It’s preposterous that with the wide expanse of land available in the North, government is sponsoring grazing reserves for Fulani herdsmen across the nation. Apart from the injustice of government promoting one trade over and above other business interest groups in the country, the NCEF cannot understand the rationale behind the action of some state governors who are willing to release the ancestral land of their people as grazing reserve. If grazing reserve is a must for the Fulani herdsmen, instead of ranching which is the international best practice, NCEF recommends that Sambisa Forest should be given to the Fulani  herdsmen.”

NCEF contended that while the economy was stagnating, Nigerians were losing their jobs in millions, as insecurity in the form of insurgency, kidnapping, armed robbery, as well as cyber crime continue to ravage the land. “To add to the problems of Nigeria, the President has been on medical vacation for some time now. Nigeria seems to be going through its worst crisis since it became an independent nation.”

They added: “The Buhari/Osinbajo Presidency is the result of a democratic process. The subtle attempts to undermine the office of the Acting President, as evidenced by an unguarded statement recently by a government functionary, is an indication of a competing ideology which is conflicting with democracy. Our founding fathers signed on in Nigeria as a democratic country in order to guarantee justice, equality and fairness for all citizens. They did not sign on for a Sharia ideology that promotes discrimination, persecution, division and oppression on the basis of religious belief and sectional ethnic identity. This is not the dream of our founding fathers; neither is it our aspiration.”

    it’s too late for nigerian Christians. for not only are they too compromised to fight back, they lack the guts to do what is needed to overturn 50 years of both secret and public policies of islamization; nigerian Christians started to run after they were already drenched by the rain.
