Cows are now valued more than human beings in Nigeria – Amaechi

Nigeria’s first Minister of Aviation, Chief Mbazulike Amaechi, has bemoaned a situation where cows seem to be valued more than human beings and citizens of the country and warned that Nigeria may disintegrate under President Muhammadu Buhari’s watch.

According to Amaechi, governments have come and gone but Nigeria did not break up and did not witness all the division currently bedeviling it today.

Northern Elders Forum, NEF, had called on President Buhari to protect Fulani herdsmen in the South, but Amaechi urged the President not to allow selfish Nigerian elders to destroy the country.

“It is very clear to everybody that the upsurge, the killings or assumption of power and weapons by the herdsmen started during this regime; it was not there during former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s regime; it was not there in late Umaru Y’Adua regime, it was not there during Goodluck Jonathan’s regime; it all started during the present Buhari’s regime, so let Nigerians count their teeth with their tongue,” he said as quoted by Vanguard.

Amaechi wondered why none of the weapon-carrying herdsmen, who move around the country have not been arrested and prosecuted by the authorities.

“Nigeria is finished under this administration; there is nothing like Nigeria again, what you have is a country where cows are valued more than human beings and citizens of the country,” the elder statesman cried out.

“Yes, Northern elders have called on Buhari to protect herdsmen in the South, let us see what will be his reaction.

‘’They are the ones killing people and some selfish Nigerians looking for favour from the president are asking him to protect them.

“This is not how to run a country, they are running Nigeria as if it belongs only to Fulani.”

Amaechi lamented that this is not the country he joined hands building, adding that he is so ashamed and disappointed with what is happening under the current government.
