Calling Fulani Herdsmen Criminals is Looking for Trouble- Buhari’s Aide, Onochie

President Muhammadu Buhari’s Social Media Aide, Madam Lauretta Onochie, has told those calling Fulani herdsmen criminals to desist from doing so.Onochie made this statement as a response to comments made by a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Femi Falana on the order given by the Governors of Ondo and Oyo States calling on herders, who are predominantly of Fulani descent, to vacate the forest reserves.Onochie wrote, “If there is an ethnic or community clash where lives and properties are lost, we pick and choose which to attribute to community clash and which to lay on the doorsteps of the Fulanis, Buhari’s ethnic group, in order to satisfy the craving for more bitterness and hatred towards Buhari.”“There is no tribe that is free of bad eggs. But criminalising an ethnic group because you don’t like President Buhari’s face, is nothing short of evil and fishing for trouble.”Onochie, who has since last year, muted the comment section on her Twitter account, probably due to insults from Nigerians, further said the critics of the regime have insatiable demands.“They had asked for restructuring. Buhari has no power to alter the constitution so he did what is within his power…After restructuring, they moved to Fulani herdsmen and Boko Haram,” she wrote.She added that those criticising Buhari are filled with hatred and driven by bitterness, and are only out to create trouble where there is none.“Those threatening mayhem must calm down, take a deep breath and remember that this is the only nation we can truly call, “ours”.”“The ballot box is usually, the best way to change a government. That is in 2023. Let common sense prevail. God bless Nigeria,” she tweeted.
