Sulaiman Ibrahim Jalo Wriets;
The instigators of religious disharmony,ethnic tensions,violent conflicts and all other major crisis in Nigeria are:
1. IPOB/Biafraud:These people earnestly want a separate country of their own rather than the Federation of Nigeria,their struggle has started before and after the Nigeria’s civil war;they use different tactics in achieving their aims,even if it means creating civil disharmony,political and societal tensions and some forms of violent conflicts;they do that through both covert and overt operations and sometimes they hide under religion,ethnicity and regional/sectional sentiments to becloud their motives and project their cause;no matter the price it takes,the ends always justify the means…
2.The corrupt official who are facing trials in different courts of law and are under anti graft investigations:
Another group of people who instigates religious/ethnic disharmony are:those presently undergoing trials in different courts of law for looting our common patrimony. To this group, if God granted their prayers, and government,somehow is being distracted by those crises,there would be no longer the Will to continue their trials in the law courts.
3.Those Who Lost Elections in 2015 and their disgruntled supporters:Theis group of people have refused to let the bygone be bygone;they are always on the attack to win back their lost glories,they always feel they can turn back the hands of the clocks…They never imagined that the power they had been enjoying for nearly two decades would be taken away from them,let alone Mr Buhari could become their president once again….They have started their hate campaigns and political propaganda immediately the President was sworn in. So,religious tension,civil disorder and ethnic violence,to them would be a blessing and that would soothe their wailing hearts.
4. The Religious/Ethnic Bigots:Remember,from the time immemorial,Fulani Herdsmen have been living together peacefully in harmony with their host communities and are usually interacting,inter Marrying and harmoniously engaging in various business activities with different ethnic groups in many parts of the World, they have happened to find themselves in;the Fulani (who are sometimes known as Fulbe, Pullo, Fula or peoul) are mostly and globally known as partly nomadic and partly settled tribe of a race of people with distinct and unique culture that are widely settled and mostly scattered around the world and have been the great travellers and explorers,founders and originators of many:hamlets,villages,towns and cities across the countries of Africa and some parts of the world;they move to and fro across frontiers in search of water, grass and fodder for their cattle;they are industrious,hardworking, independent and economically active group of people…But these days,the regular reportage on this unique,endowed,adequately blessed and highly intelligent ethnic group is mixed with falsehood,hate and propaganda by some misguided section of the media and other mischievous,sentimental, religious bloggers and some social media cynics and skeptics. They scoop the internet to bring up some old war pictures from Uganda and Rwanda and tag them as ‘Fulani killings’ or ‘Fulani Massacre’ so as to stir up unwarranted emotions in order to push further their unpopular political agenda and clear perceived hatred for President BUHARI,this is simply because,Mr President is ethnically a Fulani by tribe;they mischievously tag all those people who herd cattle as Fulani and are always regarded as Muslims(unknown to them there are many Christians and even pagan Fulani,also there are scores of other ethnic groups around the world who are practicing the culture of cattle rearing e.g,the Malles or Mandingos of Mali,the Masai of Kenya,the Shuwa Arab of Northeastern Nigeria and Chad Republic, the Turreg of Mali,libya and Niger and many other ethnic nationalities here in Africa and around the world) while those that engage in the farming activities are ignorantly labelled as Christians(as if only Christian and non Fulani people that have the monopoly of practicing the farming culture)all these take place in order to create some wide divisions and tensions among these two religious groups,but in this case,they(the instigators)cowardly,ignorantly,mischievously and hypocritically air their useless,misguided,stupid and foolish comments and propaganda without mentioning the ethnic affiliations or the tribal identities of those farmers;please see the hypocrisy of these liars and criminal hate mongers that do not want peace and unity of this country. And
5.The Fake Prophets and preachers:A lot of fake preachers and political prophets,ranging from the fake imams,pastors, clergies,bokas,gurus,magicians,Maharajis,and clerics in a bid to retain their status, memberships,lost sources of income from corrupt politicians,glory and Prestige among their ignorant followers,have been and always are the major instigators of civil disharmony and religious tensions in this country.
Others are:some disgruntled politicians,Niger delta agitators,smugglers and their godfathers,business men that import goods into this country but now are being blocked or stopped,the powerful Nigerian capitalists,the Boko Haram members,the religious extremists,the arms merchants,the neocolonialists and their domestic collaborators and the 2019 political hopefuls who do not have good manifestoes but want to use religious,sectarian and ethnic divisions for political gains…
My take on these groups of people:I and all of the other people that love to see Nigeria united,developed,prospered and become a highly progressive country,won’t curse back the enemies of this blessed nation but will continue to Pray to the almighty God to touch their deviated hearts and cleanse them from the evil thoughts they harbor against this country and its Patriotic leader,President Muhammadu Buhari;may God bless,unite and protect the Federal Republic of Nigeria,ameen..
