Former coordinator of the Benue State chapter of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), Dr. Garus Gololo, has said that the ongoing nationwide protest against the Special Anti Robbery Squad, SARS, was rather targeted at President Muhammadu Buhari and not unit of the Nigeria Police.
According to the All Progressives Congress, APC chieftain while addressing the press in Abuja on Monday, October 19, only ‘devilish’ and ‘unpatriotic’ Nigerians will want Buhari to resign of his position.
Gololo states further that those agitating for the President’s removal from office are enemies of Nigeria who don’t want Buhari to complete the good work he has started.
Naija News understands that despite that the President had announced the disbandment of the SARS operatives through the Inspector General of Police, Mohammad Adamu, Nigerians have refused to withdraw from streets but only mount more pressure as they continue to protest in a new dimension seeking for Buhari’s resignation.
Dr Gololo alleged in his statement today that some powerful politicians in the country may have been sponsoring the move to make President Buhari led government unpopular.
He said, “If not for mischief and devilish thought, why on earth would they still continue to protest when President Buhari has already disbanded the SARS? That means there are other motives behind that protest.”
“To even think some persons will cross the red line and start asking for Buhari to resign is the height of insolence and unpatriotic habit. Why are they asking him to resign when they didn’t vote for him in the first place? Check out the sections of those calling for his resignation, they didn’t vote for Buhari. Those who stood for Buhari and voted for him are pleased with his leadership charisma.”
According to Gololo, revolution cannot be achieved on mare street protests. He said, “We practice pure democracy and it amounts to treason to make attempt to upturn a democratically constituted government the way they are going. The only way to change a government is through the ballot which they could not achieve in 2019 because the majority of the people in Nigeria stood with Buhari”.
Gololo charged security agencies, especially, the Police and Secret Service to go after the sponsors of the protesters who are causing “civil unrest” and bring them to book.
He added, “The Inspector General of Police and the DG of DSS should live above board and carry out intelligence of those behind the civil unrest and move to unseat the President. Let the Service Chiefs also do their work and if they are tired, they should kindly bow out and stop the embarrassment.”
Meanwhile, Alhaji Asari Dokubo, a former Niger Delta militant, has urged people of the South-south region not to join the #EndSARS protest but instead fight for the actualization of Biafra.
