Alhaji Bashir Othman Tofa, Presidential candidate of the National Republican Convention, during the third republic says that he is deeply concerned about the way Fulanis are being attacked.
He added that those who are masterminding the attacks are instigating violence that could destroy Nigeria.
He lamented that if the north begins to launch reprisal attacks in the northern part of the country, it will be extremely difficult to control
He lamented the rate of Insecurity in the northern part of Nigeria, saying that it is not acceptable.
He observed that, “There is clearly a nefarious plan by the enemies of this potentially great country to initiate a violent crisis that may lead to its destruction.”
He noted that “the enemies are from within and outside, some well-known by our Security Agencies”, stressing that “they are more determined than ever to set us against each other, so that we may get to a point of no return when the conflagration begins.”
He urged President Buhari to “take the insecurity and the tribal lynching very seriously, and put up urgent measures to deal with them without any more delays.”
According to him, “if that were to be the case, then, we have no country”, adding that “that is how serious it is and that is what our enemies desire, and that is why we must not allow them by our inaction.”
He observed, “Those foolish leaders and their stupid hirelings who encourage the expulsion of other Nigerians from their States, should remember that their own indigenes also live in other parts. They must stop, or the law should stop them by all means necessary.”
