President Buhari Has Northern Agenda -Dikeh

What do you have to say about the political situation of the country?

I tell you frankly, I see the big ship of Nigeria sinking into a big ocean if the president is not careful. You heard what Fani Kayode said that the president is the president of the north because most of his ministerial appointments are north oriented. The president is not supposed to ignore, neglect, underrate any ethnic or tribal group in Nigeria and he is not supposed to concentrate his appointment on the north as he has just done. I can tell you candidly that president Buhari has another agenda and this will ultimately have an adverse and not a salutary effect on the nation. Nigeria is not just for the north and the south alone, Nigeria is for every Nigerian, and everybody must have a sense of belonging.

People said that the former president Goodluck Jonathan was weak, do you agree with that?

No. I don’t, he was just intelligent and slow to action, he does not act irrationally, he does due consultation and deliberation on issues before taking action ; and that is the way wise people behave; only people that act with wisdom behave like that, so he was not weak.

What message do you have for the president?

He must be very careful, and avoid neglecting any tribe or an ethnic group as he is doing right now, If not that, I repeat the big ship of Nigeria will sink into the big ocean. Please tell him that.
