Fulani radio station is validation of Obasanjo’s ‘Fulanisation’ claim, says CAN

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has condemned the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government plan of acquiring a license to set up a ‘strictly Fulani radio station’.

The CAN said the plan was a validation of comments attributed to former president Olusegun Obasanjo about the planned Fulanisation of the country by the government.

This was contained, in a statement by the Special Assistant to CAN president, Samson Ayokunle, Pastor Bayo Oladeji.

He said, “It was reported in the newspapers that the government planned to give the Miyetti Allah N100 billion.

The government denied it only for the Miyetti Allah to own up, saying it was approved by former president Goodluck Jonathan. Who is fooling who?

“Why didn’t they set up a radio station for farmers too? Where is the radio station for the bandits in Zamfara, or for the Niger Delta militants? No single person has been prosecuted for the killings in the north central.

“Is the allegation by former president Olusegun Obasanjo that there is a planned Fulanisation of the country not playing out now?

“Every adult in the north listens to the radio, so why can’t they reach the herdsmen on the existing radio stations?

Why do they need to set up a different radio station for them? They should stop fooling us.”
