The Hausa Association of Nigeria, also known as Kungiyar Hausawan Nijeriya or KUNHAN) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to resign from office because of the obvious failures of his administration.
The association in an open letter to Buhari on Sunday, which was obtained by SaharaReporters, said the Buhari regime spared Fulani terrorists and bandits, but went after agitators such as Nnamdi Kanu, the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra and Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho, Yoruba Nation agitator.
The association noted that the “Hausas regret supporting and voting" for Buhari massively.
"Therefore, we call for your resignation with immediate effect. As we suspect the worst ahead under your administration,” the letter reads.
The letter further reads, “As an Hausa Association (KUNHAN), we deem it necessary to write you this open letter to portray the true picture of Hausas' mood during this trying time. We thought we have chosen a messiah based on your saying, 'We are going to secure this country, we are going to manage it properly, we will continue to improve the security situation, economic and fighting corruption', but it turned out to be fictitious.
“Turji and Co. are high profile deadly Fulani terrorists but still nowhere to be found because they are just a threat to Hausas rather than your sovereignty while Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho could be found even beyond our territory.
“The most basic obligation you were bestowed with as a President when you were sworn in, is to protect lives and property but under your watch, hundreds if not thousands of atrocities and genocide were carried out on Hausas. Our people are always incarcerated, killed while our mothers and daughters are being raped mercilessly without tangible measures to tackle the menace. On so many occasions, you have bragged to crush the bandits and proclaimed to take necessary action but all in vain.
“The bandits are now matured to dictate to our collective population because of your empty threat. It has been happening for over five years and these terrorists are known as we have been seeing them on so many occasions with Sheikh Abubakar Gumi, even with serving Governors yet they could not be apprehended and dealt with. The answer is one, because they are not a threat to this administration while those that seem to be a threat are already in jail; Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho.
“That's why a whole Minister of Information named them just an ordinary criminal but called Nnamdi Kanu a terrorist. We Hausas have regretted supporting and voting you massively, “Therefore, we call for your resignation with immediate effect, as we suspect the worst ahead under your administration.”
