Rt. Rev. Johnson Ekwe, the Anglican Bishop of Diocese of Niger West, Anglican Communion, Anambra State, has stated that President Muhammadu Buhari has been unfair to the Igbos with some of his actions.
He also stated that President Buhari is “doing everything possible to make Ndigbo vulnerable and irrelevant ever in the affairs of the country.”
The clergyman also advised the president to caution MACBAN or their actions will breed consequences which he will face.
He made this known while speaking at the third synod of the Immanuel Church, Umueri, Anambra.
He said: ”For the Fulani Islamic extremists, Igbo would either bow to Islam or be marked as ‘useless infidels’, the big headache of the Nigerian Islamisation project of the Fulani herdsmen.
“What was the reason for proscribing the nonviolent Indigenous People of Biafra and branding it a terrorist group while the Federal Government and the violent Miyetti Allah group went into round table negotiations to be paid in dollars?
“Let the Federal Government tell us when Nigeria has become the Federal Republic of the Fulani of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria.
“They should equally tell us if Muhammadu Buhari has ceased to be the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to become that of the Fulani herdsmen and the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria.
“We therefore call on the Federal Government to educate the Fulani herdsmen, MACBAN and their allies that Nigeria belongs to all of us and no tribe or group should threaten the corporate existence of other tribes or ethnic groups.”
