General Muhammadu Buhari is NOT bothered about the KILLINGS of Nigerians in South Africa because he feels that most Nigerians there are Igbos. They are 5 percenters. If he wanted to, he could act fast. Remember how fast he acted with Zainab Aliyu in Saudi Arabia?
There are several things General Buhari could do if he TRULY was outraged by the killings of Nigerians in SA. There is a ‘MORALITY CLAUSE’ in MTN’s license. He could invoke that. When SA feels the financial pinch, the killings would stop INSTANTLY.
Also, General Buhari could lift from the Donald Trump’s playbook and impose TARIFFS on SA goods and services. We buy more from them than they buy from us. It would HURT their ECONOMY and they would stop the killings FAST. But Buhari is CLUELESS!
Another thing the CLUELESS General Buhari should have done by now is provide a plane to airlift vulnerable Nigerians from the hotspot in SA. Our embassy should also open their doors for the vulnerable to seek shelter in. But Buhari has done NOTHING!
South Africans have boldness to call us CRIMINALS because General Buhari first called us CRIMINALS. Buhari is not the SOLUTION. He is the PROBLEM. The main PROBLEM. He INSPIRES South Africans to treat us as they do. He even called our youths Lazy.
But apart from TALK, General Buhari has done NOTHING. Not even issue a TRAVEL ADVISORY! If South Africans were killing HERDSMEN’s COWS, you would have seen speed of action! If Saudi Arabia was arresting TRAMADOL suspects, Buhari would be SUPERMAN!
Human memory is short. Instead of packaging and repackaging LIES for Nigerians, General Buhari and Lai Mohammed could have redeemed themselves by holding a press conference to remind South Africans of the billions Nigeria spent fighting APARTHEID
Yesterday, General Buhari sponsored miscreants to protest against BorisJohnson and UKInNigeria over the P&ID $9.6 billion judgment, but he has remained SILENT over the killings in SA because MONEY is more important to him than Nigerian lives.
Nigerian children grew up singing songs by Onyeka, Majek and Ras Kimono, condemning APARTHEID in SA. Today, Nigerian kids watch South Africans sing songs condemning Nigerians. Worse, we have a CLUELESS General Buhari who does NOTHING to protect us.
Nelson Mandela lived in Enugu for 6 months while on exile from the SA government. Please do not take my word for this. Google it. Thabo Mbeki lived in Lagos for years. Thousands of South Africans schooled in Nigeria in Nigerian govt scholarship. Nigerians don’t deserve the treatment from SA.
Nigeria’s Supreme Court cited General Buhari for using PUBLIC lawyers and funds for a PRIVATE case against him. So selfish a man. He uses government resources to defend himself but cant use them to defend Nigerians in SA. Is this a leader we need?
General Buhari is not to blame alone. Look at Nigerian churches who should be the conscience of the nation. When Daddy Freeze spoke against TITHES, they TIGHTLY spoke up. Now Nigerians are being killed in SA, how many of them have spoken up? Is TITHES more important than LIVES?
Thank God for a man of God Like Apostle Johnson Suleman, who has refused to keep SILENT while his fellow countrymen and women are being slaughtered in SA. Here is a man of God who fulfils Isaiah 1:17 “Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed”.
