There’s been mixed reactions after head of states, President Muhammadu Buhari issued a warning to those bent on destroying the country.
In a statement issued by Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Buhari vowed to shock those who are bent on destroying his government.
Buhari in his tweets, said attacks across the nation were aimed at giving the impression that his administration has failed. He went on to add that he visited all the 36 states before the 2019 elections “and majority of the people believed me, and the election proved it.”
He also stated that those causing chaos in certain parts of the country were obviously too young to know the deaths that resulted from the Nigerian Civil War.
He added: “Those of us in the fields for 30 months, who went through the war, will treat them in the language they understand. We are going to be very hard sooner than later.”
The President’s statement was supported by some, an example is Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo who tweeted,
“I hope some elites who couldn’t find their voices to rein in their wards when their region burnt, will not suddenly find their voices against Mr. President!
“Those who screamed that it’s Mr. President’s duty to maintain law & order should NOT try to teach him how to do his job now.”
However, a number of people have been against the president and accused him of threatening citizens from the southeast while treating bandits, herdsmen, and Boko Haram terrorists with kid’s gloves.
Author and social media speaker, Reno Omokri wrote,
“Exactly a month ago, General @MuhammaduBuhari was “appealing” to herdsmen and bandits to stop their acts of terror. A month later, another Buhari is threatening the Southeast with Nigerian Civil War 2.
“How can one man have a different reaction to similar events? Is this a case of Multiple Personality Disorder? Are we dealing with a Jekyll and Hyde schizophrenic personality? I am not understanding!”
He also added: “The man who held a graduation party for Boko Haram is the same man threatening the Southeast with Civil War 2?”
