Rt. Rev. Johnson Ekwe, the Anglican Bishop of Niger West Diocese, Anambra State, has vehemently condemned some of President Muhammadu Buhari’s actions, saying that they are unfair to the Igbo’s.
According to the bishop, the Buhari led government embarked on deliberate policies to suppress the Igbo.
He noted that the Igbo ethnicity is the big head of the Fulani islamisation project, adding that the Igbos are seen as useless infidels because they would not bow to Islam.
Naija Buzz News had few weeks ago published a shocking revelation by former President Olusegun over an alleged agenda by Boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen to Fulanise and Islamise Nigeria and West Africa.
The Bishop who spoke at the third synod of the diocese held at Immanuel Church, Umueri, Anambra East Local Government Area of Anambra State, further noted that the president was “doing everything possible to make Ndigbo vulnerable and irrelevant ever in the affairs of the country.”
Bishop Ekwe berated President Buhari for proscribing the non-violent Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and declaring it a terrorist organisation while at the same time promoting the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association allegedly responsible for the death of thousands.
Read below, the address delivered by the Anglican Bishop;
For the Fulani Islamic extremists, Igbo would either bow to Islam or be marked as ‘useless infidels’, the big headache of the Nigerian Islamisation project of the Fulani herdsmen.
“What was the reason for proscribing the nonviolent Indigenous People of Biafra and branding it a terrorist group while the Federal Government and the violent Miyetti Allah group went into round table negotiations to be paid in dollars?
“Let the Federal Government tell us when Nigeria has become the Federal Republic of the Fulani of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria.
“They should equally tell us if Muhammadu Buhari has ceased to be the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to become that of the Fulani herdsmen and the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria.
“We therefore call on the Federal Government to educate the Fulani herdsmen, MACBAN and their allies that Nigeria belongs to all of us and no tribe or group should threaten the corporate existence of other tribes or ethnic groups.”
