In de­fence of Nyako

Daily Trust - - VIEWS -

Nyako has spo­ken not only his mind but that of north­ern Nige­ri­ans. Only the gullible can agree with the so-called FG’s fight against in­sur­gency. The govern­ment at the cen­tre should pro­vide an­swer(s) to those al­le­ga­tions raised by Obasanjo and Nyako.

sqmi­lan@ya­ ************************ The sus­pi­cion that govern­ment is be­hind these crises is in ev­ery north­erner’s mind, from peas­ants to Emirs in­clud­ing people in the se­cu­rity cir­cle. There­fore, the Lamido and Nyako’s ac­tions sim­ply rep­re­sent the feel­ings of aver­age north­ern­ers hence we are solidly be­hind them. A lot of unan­swered, nay, unan­swer­able ques­tions about the crises gave rise to these sus­pi­cions; many of which ap­peared in this main write-up.

ma­sud­haruna@ya­ ************************ The um­brage and hot air apart, Nyako hit the nail on the head. The reck­less and ruth­less killings of Mo­hammed Yusuf, Foi and count­less Nige­ri­ans by the po­lice pre­cip­i­tated this cri­sis. The root of it all is power and the lu­cre that ac­crues to who­ever wields that power through the in­stru­ments of of­fice. The so­lu­tion is open, free and fair elec­tion that count only the votes casts and de­clare the re­sult openly so that the people are rep­re­sented by elected rep­re­sen­ta­tives and not eth­nic/INEC/Court-de­clared win­ners.
