- A group has condemned the recent on the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration by Governor Aminu Tambuwal - The group said no attack on the president will deter him from delivering his promises to Nigerians - According to the youth group, corruption in Nigeria deepened because the seventh National Assembly - which Tambuwal was part of - failed to do their job A Nigerian youth group has condemned the recent attack on President Muhammadu Buhari by the governor of Sokoto state, Aminu Tambuwal. The group, Nigerian Youth Impact Movement (NYIM) said it is very disheartening to see people who were in the helms of affairs in the old regime known for waste, nepotism among many others cast aspersions on President Buhari. In a statement released on Friday, July 13, the executive director of the NYIM, Odoh Chima, warned Tambuwal not to throw caution to the winds because he appears to be eyeing the presidential seat. Chima said Nigeria relapsed into recession shortly after the take off of the present administration because the seventh National Assembly - which Tambuwal was part of - failed to do their job.

He said the Sokoto governor lacked the moral justification to attack the person of President Muhammadu Buhari. On national security, Chima also accused Tambuwal of being nonchalant of the plight of many Nigerians during various killings spree across regions in the country. He said: " We view this call as unfortunate and Ill conceived but we are not surprised because Tambuwal has again proven himself to be the chameleon that he is." "While we are not against his hobnobbing with the opposition which he now clearly belongs, we are warning him to stop playing politics with the lives of Nigerians. The Nigerian security architecture as presently constituted has performed remarkably well, no wonder they have decapitated the dreaded Boko Haram terrorists, quelled all insurrections around the country and currently working to end the persistent farmers-herders crisis. Tambuwal and his co-travellers should know that no amount of blackmail to score cheap political goals can deter Mr President from delivering on his promises which he has continued to do. Comments like these amount to hate speech because they are capable of inflaming the already tensed situation around the country," Chima said. Much as we know that the evil intent of Hon Tambuwal is to paint Mr President in a bad light and turn his people against him, we also can now clearly see that he is one of those who have seen President Buhari as a convenient scapegoat on account of his ethnicity. Now that investigations have it that the recent killings have a political undertone, it is very clear that while we are hearing the voice of Jacob, the hand we feel is that of Esau. “Stereotyping a particular ethnic group who have lived peacefully with their host communities for hundreds of years because of one man has put the innocent Fulani man at harm's way. “Only a witch is quick to accuse others of witchcraft there is no way Hon Tambuwal can tell Nigerians he knows nothing about the grand plot to destabilize Nigeria," Chima concluded.
