Gov. Ayodele Fayose has emerged as the Champion of the Nigerian people.
He is the knight in shining armor who has ridden forth to challenge the organized crime syndicate that goes by the name MACBAN: the cult that has been making human sacrifices to the Caliphate’s Cattle deity.
The MACBAN crime syndicate recently boasted: “No one can stop us from grazing in the south — Fulani herdsmen”
Three weeks later, their bluff was called when: “Fayose makes history, bans cattle grazing in Ekiti”
A battle royal is about to begin. Every Nigerian has to choose a side: The Caliphate’s or Fayose’s.
Every lackey of the Caliphate can be expected to line up behind MACBAN.
But every Nigerian who is concerned about the safety of his farm, home, people or person; and who wants protection from the Fulani herdsmen and Fulani Militia, now knows what to do about that menace:
– Hold rallies,
– pass resolutions,
– publish petitions inviting your state Governor to do like Fayose.
Let the voices of the people ring out loud and clear throughout the land.
Fayose is our hero, our national leader; the leader of the people’s movement to resist the Caliphate and stop MACBAN’s criminal ritual of human sacrifice!
Afenifere promptly backed Gov. Fayose.
So too should Ohaneze; the Southern Kaduna Peoples Union, SOKAPU, Middle Belt Dialogue, and other organizations of the victimized nationalities.
Chief Olu Falae, the Tor Tiv, Cardinal John Onaiyekan, Wole Soyinka, Sen. Gabriel Suswam, Gov. Samuel Ortom, Senator Joseph Waku, Abubakar Tsav and every other prominent Nigerian whose farm, home, village, people or person has been attacked by the Fulani herdsmen or Militia should loudly support Gov. Fayose.
So too former Senate President, Gen. David Mark, Rtd, who mourned for the Agatu victims.
Gov. Samuel Ortom, I sympathize with your loss of your country home to the Fulani ethnic cleansers.
But why lament to the public? Is that the best you can do? Why not show leadership and do like Gov Fayose?
To Governor Rochas Okorocha and the other APC governors who went to commiserate with Governor Ortom, why don’t you, in your states, follow the example of Governor Fayose?
All who have lamented the atrocities of these hoofed tin gods should openly support the Fayose solution.
Others who should publicly support Fayose include the persons attacked, in 2000, in Saki, Oyo State; and in numerous other places since then: Sagamu, Ogun State; many villages in Plateau, Benue, Nasarawa, Southern part of Kaduna state; villages in Ondo, Kogi, Oyo, Imo, Abia, Ogun, Enugu, Delta, down to Agatu in Benue State, and Nimbo, in Enugu State in 2016 (i.e. in five of Nigeria’s six zones); and those unnumbered victims sheltering in IDP camps in those states.
For more on these attacks please see “The Afenifere Threat to Secede from Nigeria: Open Letter to the Sultan of Sokoto and the Caliphate’s MACBAN”, Vanguard, November 9, 2015, p. 44; and for a fuller account than Vanguard published please see “Afenifere’s secession threat & Armed Fulani herdsmen”
Nigerians need to understand that these cattle, whose so-called Herdsmen go armed with AK-47s and attack villages, are the hoofed agents of those who boasted in 2012, through Usman Faruk, Gov of NW State in the Gowon regime: “We subdued the Yorubas and conquered the Ijaws: We will do it again”. Please see “Caliphate Colonialism: The taproot of the trouble with Nigeria”
We can expect a constitutional crisis over Governor Fayose’s solution.
The MACBAN crime syndicate claimed that their grazing rights are protected by the Constitution:
“. . . The Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria guarantees freedom of movement for every citizen of the country; this includes the right to live, work and carry out any legitimate activity in any part of the country. . . .”
They are, therefore, likely to attack the Fayose solution as unconstitutional.
However, a Constitution that gives them a loophole for persistent criminal activities in their host communities (trespassing and grazing farms, gang raping women, kidnapping, murder, massacres, ethnic cleansing etc.) that threaten security and lives in five of the six zones in Nigeria needs to be questioned and discarded:
What is the origin of that constitution?
Who commissioned it?
How was it brought into operation?
Was it approved by the people in any referendum?
Whose sectional interest does it serve and whose interest does it harm?
Since it is self-advertised as a Federal Constitution, is it really and truly Federal?
And in any case, should a constitution be an altar for human sacrifice?
We must all prepare for a mighty battle over the legitimacy of their fake 1999 Constitution.
