Former Presidetial aide to Goodluck Ebele Jonathan on New Media, Reno Omokri has called on people from Northern part of Nigeria not to see his continued protest against President Muhammadu Buhari in London as anti-North agenda.
Reno Omokri stated this today during the continued protest against President Muhammadu Buhari tagged”#Harass Buhari Out Of London”.
I know many Northerners feel some camaraderie with General Buhari.
However, they need to search the Quran and read what it says about supporting wrong based on primordial sentiments, like tribe and religion.
Northerners should not just blankety label anyone that is against Muhammadu Buhari as anti-North.
Buhari is from the North, but he is not the North.
The North is more than Buhari. As a matter of statistical fact, Buhari is not even good for the North.
In terms of human development, the North has fared far worse under Buhari than it did under any other leader bar none.
Poverty was existent in the North before Buhari, but it is now extreme poverty.
Something like 80% of the extremely poor people in Nigeria are based in the North.
And it is not just poverty. Unemployment is now at record level. Insecurity is now pervasive in the North.
Northerners can hardly go to work, whether at farms, offices, or mills.
Their children are not safe at school. Their wives are not protected from endemic insecurity even at the market.
No one can sleep with two eyes closed in Northern Nigeria.
In 2010, the Average Life Expectancy in Nigeria was 47 years.
Five years down the line, Nigeria’s Average Life Expectancy increased to 54 years.
Whereas, in 2014, Nigeria made her greatest improvement in improving average life expectancy, life expectancy in Northern Nigeria has gone down, while increasing in other parts of the nation.
With all these happenings, it makes sense to be anti-Buhari if you are pro-development.
I was for President Umar Musa Yar’adua. Check my records. I supported him.
I very strongly supported Alhaji Atiku Abubakar. Atiku is more Northern than Buhari, in that unlike Buhari, he speaks Fufulde.
The truth is that Muhammadu Buhari is only slightly more refined than his marauding herdsmen kinsmen. His cautionary statements about 5% and 97% prove it.
