The Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has likened President Muhammadu Buhari’s method of tackling insecurity in Nigeria to that of the Taliban, the terrorist group which recently took over Afghanistan.
Governor Ortom remarked day in a statement issued and made available to DAILY POST by his Chief Press Secretary, Terver Akase.
The statement alleged that Buhari’s government prioritized the welfare of cattle to the detriment of Nigerians, stating that the president has taken the country back to the precolonial era.
According to Akase, “What is the difference between the Buhari administration’s approach to insecurity and the Taliban agenda in Afghanistan?
It is now evident that the government at the center prioritizes the welfare of cattle over human beings and is bent on taking Nigeria back to the pre-colonial era with some snippets of a society wherein the words of Thomas Hobbes, life has become ‘solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short’.
The country has been turned to a cow republic by the present administration and the basic principles of equality, justice, fairness, and equity which engender peace and suppress anarchy are non-existent”.
