Worried by the security and economic situations plaguing Nigerians, human rights activist and senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to forget his ambition of running for a second term next year and address the enormous challenges in the country today.

In the same vein, the Tor Tiv and paramount ruler of the Tiv nation, Prof James Ortese Ayatse, while condemning “the barbaric, unprovoked attacks and killings” of his subjects by marauding Fulani herdsmen, insisted it was a well-planned, coordinated genocide against his people.

The Tor Tiv, who is also the Chairman of Benue State Council of Chiefs, added: “It is our belief that the whole thing is targeted and well-planned and it is nothing short of ethnic cleansing and genocide against the Tiv nation.”


According Sani, the President and his second term campaigners have no basis to seek for the votes of Nigerians when Fulani herdsmen and kidnappers have waged unrelenting war against many communities in the country, with scores killed and properties destroyed.

The senator said: “It is wrong to be talking of the re-election of Buhari as President when hundreds of lives are being lost and people are being massacred in different parts of the country.

“In time of bloodshed like this, the issue should be how to come together and address the problem. But those marketing the President at a time of this bloodshed are like people dancing on the graves of Nigerians.

President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday met with seven northern governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) extraction at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, after the Muslim faithful had joined him in the Juma’at Prayer session at the Aso Rock mosque.

Speaking with State House Correspondents after the session, Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, said the other governors, whose meeting in the presidential villa was a coincidence, were Jibrila Bindo (Adamawa), Simon Lalong (Plateau), Abubakar Bello (Niger), Yahaya Bello (Kogi), Ibrahim Gaidam (Yobe) and Nasir El-Rufai (Kaduna).

Ganduje in the brief encounter with the newsmen explained that the seven of them “came separately and not for any purpose,” but only “decided to say hello to Mr. President.”


“It is just a coincidence that we met in the Mosque and some joined us later and we decided to go and greet him,” the Governor said.

However, the Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, who also spoke, renewed calls for President Buhari to continue in office for a second term despite the divergent opinions expressed by party members on the suitability of his (Buhari) candidature for the 2019 Presidential election.

Fielding further questions from the newsmen, Governor El-Rufai also confirmed insin‎uations that the visit had a political colouration.

He said: “We are politicians and those of us you see here want the President to contest the 2019 election, we have no apologies for that.

“We believe in Mr. President, we want him to continue running the country in the right direction. People can speculate about 2019 we have no apologies,” he added.

On the propriety of the group’s insistence for President Buhari’s candidature despite opposition within his party, Governor El-Rufai simply said, “everybody is entitled to their own opinions.”

His words: “Whether they are right or wrong is besides the point. Everybody is entitled to his own opinion, but as governors, and most of us here with the exception of Yobe governor are first-time governors.
