Good morning brethren, today’s sermon will be a difficult but honest one.

1. I wasn’t going to say anything about #Zamfara, or lend my voice to the sudden outrage. As most of you will know, I hate hypocrisy.

Where was this outrage BEFORE the elections when people were dying?
2. Even with this new anger at FG’s failure to secure lives & property, people are STILL reluctant to hold @mbuhari the C-in-C to account, blaming @GovYari instead

3. Some are angry that Baba was silent about #Zamfara but managed to express his sadness at the death of a Lagosian
4. The same people that mocked us when we protested against the REFUSAL of the FG and @mBuhari to act against killers in #Benue, #SouthernKaduna, #Taraba, #Plateau are organizing a tokenistic protest on a Saturday while Baba is out of the country and are “slightly pissed” at him.

.@MBuhari says he wants to take #Nigeria to the #NextLevel but while as HoS in 85, he cancelled an Education Reform Policy of Prof Babatunde Fafunwa which could have turned our academic curricular into a modern tool to raise the next generation of IT gurus & other professionals!
Same @MBuhari canceled a light rail project of Gov Lateef Jakande of Lagos in '85! A $400M loan project that would have forever transformed the face of public transportation in Lagos & served as template for other states! Say No to #NextLevel
#LetsGetNigeriaWorkingAgain
Again, @MBuhari as military General, plotted a coup with fellow coupists & disrupted a democratically elected govt of Pres Shagari & VP Ekwueme for no just reason asides contempt for democratic ideals & a penchant for dictatorship! So NO to #NextLevel #LetsGetNigeriaWorkingAgain

It must be noted that this crisis is not the first this year to engulf Kasuwan Magani, #Kaduna.

At least 12 persons were killed and 1,000 houses destroyed in a religious crisis that erupted on 26 February over the conversion of a Christian girl to Islam by her Muslim boyfriend.
65 persons were subsequently arrested and charged to court by @contactkdsg.

The history of #Kaduna is filled with crises cutting across religious, economic and tribal lines, and various governments, both military and civilian have been unable to prevent the lawlessness.
The state government’s helplessness was laid bare during the 2016 crisis between herdsmen and farmers in #Godogodo.

The payment of compensation only for cattle killed in the crisis exposed the unwillingness of @contactkdsg to confront these security threats head-on.

Plateau’s bloody week holds important long-term consequences for the rest of the country, as does our global poverty profile, the President taking a swipe at restructuring advocates, and the finance ministry’s chest thumping while not saying much.
The #Plateau incident underscores the simmering nature of multiple low and medium intensity conflicts occurring across #Nigeria, a historically certain prelude to a total breakdown of law and order.
Inter-communal distrust has continued to escalate with cyclical patterns of strife in conflict areas.

The pervasive loss of confidence in @AsoRock as a neutral arbiter is a key factor in this escalation as it encourages communities to adopt vigilantism with catastrophic results
