A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Kailani Mohammed, has declared that the 2019 presidential election would be in favour of President Muhammadu Buhari despite the ‘gang-up’ against him.
The Nation reports that Mohammad, a very close ally of Buhari since the days of All Peoples Party (APP) argued that, the said selfish politicians were causing the insecurity to discredit Buhari’s government.
He said Nigerians were treated to a rude shock as cattle rustling, kidnapping and Fulani herdsmen/farmers clashes soon took center stages to replace insurgency, all in the bid to dampen the gesto, anticipations and expectation of the Nigerians in Muhammadu Buhari led administration.
He added that, these politicians working their selfish interests posit that the Fulani/farmers clashes is a manifestation of the fact that Fulani herdsmen see the President as their kinsman but it is known fact that some people guise of Fulani to perpetrates killings in the North Central.
Mohammed who was the chairman “Buhari Votes Guard and Awareness” further stated that in order to debunk the insinuation, President Buhari ordered security agents to arrest any Fulani man found trotting a gun and we hope this will neutralize the rumor mill. However fingers are pointing at politicians for rising wave of killings in Nigeria.
He said: “It is alleged that politicians sponsor thugs and hoodlums who are responsible for most community skirmishes and killings in the country that has sent many Nigerians to the great beyond.
“In this direction, the Nigeria Police have invited President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki over an allegation that he sponsored some political thugs that have been unleashing terror in Kwara state”

He continued that, revelation by the leader of the Middle Belt Peace Network, Jayeola Mohammed that Jonah Jang a member of People’s Democratic Party and former governor of Plateau state once vowed to make Plateau ungovernable for Lalong is something that is worrisome.
According to him, “Mohammed further claimed that Jang, who was recently arrested by the DSS over issues bordering on corruption and abuse of office, had sworn to extinguish the peace of Plateau state and enshrine anguish and despair by empowering youths in the area with weapons.“
