The Eze Ndigbo of Ibadan and Oyo State, Dr. Alex Anozie, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to order all non-Nigerian Fulani going around the country and wreaking havoc with AK-47 and other lethal weapons to return to their countries.
He gave the advice in a statement which was sighted by The Eastern Updates yesterday.
Anozie, who is also the Coordinator/Chairman of Non– Indigenes Traditional Council in Oyo State, equally appealed to the Federal Government of Nigeria to ensure the stoppage of all the killings across the country.
He went further advise that no stone should be left unturned by the Buhari-led administration, towards instilling justice, equity, fairness, and fear of God in everything they do.
Anozie, who noted that the Nigeria civil war between 1967 and 1960 lasted for 30 months, wondered why the Boko Haram insurgency has lasted for more than 12 years without the federal government finding a lasting solution to it.
His words: ‘One wonders why Boko Haram insurgents, made up of a collection of few hundreds initially, but now thousands of dissidents, should continue to last for over 12 years now, against the federal might?’
President Buhari, according to him, should fast-track the process of restructuring Nigeria into six geo-political zones, to balance all federal appointments, and to ensure that the anti-corruption war is fought sincerely without fear or favour.
‘With all these done, the elders will find it easier to convince the Nigerian youths to calm down. Nobody wants to leave Nigeria when all these are in place. I may be right or wrong,’ he said.
