A diaspora Nigerians in Italy have called on President Muhammadu Buhari to address the lingering security challenges in the country to ensure peace and stability in Nigeria.
The Concerned Nigerian Forum in Italy expressed their concern about the increasing apprehension from the division between Fulani herdsmen and other Nigerians.
In a statement by its spokesman, Patrick Guobadia, said, “We, the Concerned Nigerian Forum in Italy, are worried about the increasing apprehension from the division between Fulani Herdsmen and the rest of Nigerians and the glaring vacuum of leadership and nepotism and poor structure.”
The group urged President Buhari to quickly address the situation and halt his silence approach to matters of urgent importance.
“We urge President Muhammadu Buhari-led government to wake up and address the country pressing challenges as failure to do so may ignite another civil war unrest.
“We caution that the Northern elders and Miyetti Allah Association desist from defending criminal elements they claim are not Nigerians or join the table for an appropriate solution.
“Mr President must discontinue his body language, innuendos, and silence. He must order the security agencies to fish out the perpetrators of these heinous crimes and ensure they face the wrath of the law to serve as a deterrent.
“The President must reassure Nigerians that he is not a Northern President but the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.He must put his religion and tribe aside and protect the lives and property of all Nigerians.
The group also called on Nigerians across all divides to embrace peace.
“Fulani Herdsmen have remained a puzzle, and the Northern elites comment is an indication to push a dominance agenda despite the implications. We call on all Nigerians to sheathe their swords and work with the security agencies to bring this menace to a lasting end.” .
