The Niger Delta Security Watch Organization, NSWO, has criticised the threat by Northern youths that they would not condone any more attack on the image of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The NSWO reminded the northern youths that former President Goodluck Jonathan was called all sorts of names during his tenure and nobody raised eyebrows.
President of the group, Dickson Bekederemo, in a statement, said: “We strongly condemn the irrational position taken by Northern youths under the auspices of Northern Youth Leaders Assembly, who threatened not to tolerate any further attack on Buhari’s image because he has done so much to put the nation on the path of progress.
“From their utterances, it appears they have forgotten that President Buhari is the President of Nigeria and not the president of Northern Nigeria, and so cannot be free from criticism. May we remind them that when President Jonathan was on the seat of power, he was called all sorts of names, ranging from clueless, incompetent and drunken fisherman.
“The pace has been set. President Buhari’s case will also not be different, as Nigerians from all walks of life have the right to criticize him,” the group added.
