Kaduna State Government Regrets Killings/Kidnappings, Reacts To El-Rufai’s Old Video

Amidst the violence unleashed by criminal elements on the people of Kaduna State, some commentators have responded by blaming KDSG for asserting that the duty of the state is to uphold the law and not to reward hoodlums for violating the lives, property and liberties of citizens. Those pushing that kind of narrative are sharing a video clip of a 2014 interview in which Malam Nasir El-Rufai called on the government of President Goodluck Jonathan to use all options, including negotiation, to rescue the Chibok girls. The years since 2014 may have led some people to forget the denial and doubt that defined the FG's response to the Chibok abductions, especially the initial refusal to acknowledge that it happened. That was the context under which civic pressures were brought on the gov...

The problem of Fulani herdsmen started long ago as isolated cases. It only assumed frightening proportions because one of their own is the president of Nigeria. Under Buhari, herds of cattle roam through Asokoro as if on a state visit to the president. In the last two years, cows have been seen wandering through the Abuja city centre, causing traffic gridlocks and sometimes accidents. The menace of the herdsmen is a sign of what is to come. The hunger for land, with simmering religious and ethnic tensions, if not checked, will tear this country apart. The Fulani have never hidden their thirst for political and teritorial supremacy, a thirst that knows no borders. Their territorial interests always exclude the well-being of indigenous populations, with no interest in existing political an...
