Niger Delta Group, NSWO, Condemns Northern Youths Threat Over Buhari
Niger Delta Security Watch Organization, NSWO, has condemned the threat by Northern youths that they would not condone any more attacks on the image of President Muhammadu Buhari, saying that former President Goodluck Jonathan was called all sorts of names during his tenure and nobody went to war over it.
Earlier in the week, some Northern youths under the aegis of Northern Youth Leaders Assembly, NYLA, warned that they would no longer tolerate attacks on President Muhammadu Buhari’s person and his family.
This prompted the response from NSWO, whose president, Dickson Bekederemo said in a statement, that Buhari is president of the entire country and cannot be free of criticism, Vanguard writes.
“We strongly condemn the irrational position taken by Northern youths under the auspices of Northern Youth Leaders Assembly, who threatened not to tolerate any further attack on Buhari’s image because he has done so much to put the nation on the path of progress,” the statement read in part.
“From their utterances, it appears they have forgotten that President Buhari is the President of Nigeria and not the president of Northern Nigeria, and so cannot be free from criticism. May we remind them that when President Jonathan was on the seat of power, he was called all sorts of names, ranging from clueless, incompetent and drunken fisherman.
“The pace has been set. President Buhari’s case will also not be different, as Nigerians from all walks of life have the right to criticize him.”
