Eth­no­cen­trism, in­tol­er­ance dan­ger­ous to democ­racy – Buhari

Daily Trust - - ONLINE REACTIONS -

This stigma­ti­za­tion of Buhari is very un­for­tu­nate. Be­fore the elec­tions, his op­po­nents painted him a re­li­gious fa­natic. And the peo­ple know that his war on an­ti­cor­rup­tion knows no re­li­gious, eth­nic or class coloura­tion. Then come a re­hash of the prom­i­nent po­si­tions held by Mus­lims in Nige­ria. It is mis­chievous to cast as­per­sion of bias on Buhari. It amounts to the typ­i­cal Nige­rian game of chas­ing need­less shad­ows rather than fo­cus­ing on the ar­du­ous task of na­tion­build­ing.

This APC gov­ern­ment that has brought us so much di­vi­sion and dis­unity are the peo­ple now warning us. Bola Tin­ubu’s ef­forts to ma­nip­u­late and con­trol the Senate will pull down this di­vi­sive gov­ern­ment.

Sec­tional appointments by a sit­ting pres­i­dent are also eth­no­cen­trism and threaten na­tional se­cu­rity. Neb­u­lous gov­ern­ment like Buhari’s own is calamity to any na­tion.
