Buhari told to declare state of emergency in Kaduna, remove el-Rufai as governor
Following renewed wave of attacks by terrorists in Kaduna state, President Muhammadu Buhari has been told to remove Nasir el-Rufai as governor of the state.
A former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan and socio-political activist, Reno Omokri, who gave the advice, also implored Buhari to follow el-rufai’s removal with declaration of state of emergency in the beleaguered northern enclave.
Omokri, who’s a vociferous critic of the current administration, said Buhari would have invaded the South-East without batting an eyelid had the train bombing by terrorists happened in the region.
The former presidential aide said events of lesser significance attracted the full might and wrath of the federal government to the troubled south east, leading to death and destruction in region.
He, however, doubted Buhari’s ability to declare a military rule in Kaduna State because, according to him, the terrorists may expose the President and El-Rufai.
In recent weeks, Kaduna State has become the hotbed of mind-numbing and violent attacks by terrorists who have moved from kidnapping and killing students, attacking military formations, critical infrastructure and taking over rural villages in the State.
The daredevil terrorists recently bombed the Abuja-Kaduna bound train between Katari and Rigina axis, killed passengers and kidnapped as many as they wanted.
He wrote: “You think that if a train was bombed in South-East Nigeria, Buhari would not have overwhelmed the region with troops?
“Remember how troops overwhelmed Orlu in Imo last year with helicopter gunships? Why hasn’t Buhari sent them to Kaduna? Because he is protecting terrorists.
“How many people did IPOB kill before General Buhari invaded the Southeast with Operation Python Dance?
“Who was killed before Buhari sent Operation Crocodile Smile to the Southsouth? Now, terrorists have turned Kaduna to a war zone and Buhari is smiling at Aso Rock!”
“Kaduna is a war zone. The best thing now is to declare a state of emergency and remove the Governor, @elrufai, whose comments and actions have fuelled the crisis. But of course, General Buhari won’t do it. Why? Because the terrorists may expose him and El-Rufai,” he claimed.
