The President has once again accused politicians of blackmailing him over the recent killings and clashes between herdsmen and farmers in some parts of the country. Speakiing at the APC Mega rally yesterday July 10th, President Buhari said a class of politicians are denting his image with claims that he has remained silent over the killings across the country because he belongs to the Fulani tribe.
“May I again clear the air on the issue of herdsmen and farmers conflict. Many politicians in their mischievous attitude have been blackmailing me and the APC-led administration purporting that I have not taken any action on the issue because I am a Fulani man. This is a cheap blackmail.” he said
He maintained that he is still committed to his oath of office to protect the lives of all Nigerians.
“The protection of lives and properties of Nigerians is my responsibility. This I have vowed to do and will stick to the oath of office. I assure you that measures are been taken to ensure lasting solutions,” he said.
