The Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF) has condemned the plan by the Federal Government to declare a state of emergency in Anambra, stressing thatitreaffirmsdiscriminatory posture of President Muhammadu Buhari’s government.
PANDEF in a chat with Daily Independent on Wednesday, through its National Publicity Secretary, Hon. Ken Robinson, said that even though what is happening in Anambra State is condemn able, it should be regarded as a child’s play compared with what is happening in Zamfara, Katsina, Kaduna, Borno, Yobe, Niger states, and even extending to Sokoto State.
Robinson said, “This attitude of Abubakar Malami speaking for the Federal Government is unbecoming of the Attorney General of the Federation(AGF). He does not conduct himself in a manner that befits the office that he is occupying. He conducts him self as Attorney General of the Fulani Republic and not Attorney General of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. He is threatening a state of emergency in Anambra State, has he declared a state of emergency in Zamfara, Borno Kaduna, Katsina, Niger, Yobe states where the bandits are having a field day, terrorising, killing and maiming innocent citizens at will in the North-West, North- East and now North-Central regions?
“No effort has been made by Malami, the Federal Government or the spokesman that is the Minister of Information or even the president himself. Instead they are busy threatening a state of emergency in Anambra State. It speaks to the nepotism of this government and vibrates the discriminatory posture and elements of bias and bigotry of Buhari’s administration and it further heights the disaffection we have on our hands and it is totally unacceptable.”
