We welcome you back to the Federal Republic of Nigeria! We hope you are well? We saw some pictures of your images when you were in London, England.
We watched clips of your representation at the Education summit that you went for where you told the world that nobody can achieve beyond their educational trainings.
Mr. President, we saw the pictures that you took with Asiwaju Bola Tinibu, the national leader of All Progressives Congress, APC, your own party, standing side-by-side. We, as Indigenous People of Nigeria, are wondering what the both of you want?
Mr. President, yourself and Asiwaju Tinubu, who are supposed to be the leaders of our country, were found in London, England, in a porsche environment (Tinubu’s residence), smiling to the camera after getting the best of medical attention while Nigeria burns.
The Indigenous People of Nigeria are being slaughtered by the day in Jos, Plateau state. They are also being slaughtered across several communities in Zamfara state, Katsina state, where you hail from, even in the Federal Capital Territory, where you officially reside.
While you were away Mr President, all these have continued to ravage the land. Politics have started raring its face with the two major political parties having internal struggles at the moment. But we hope that the leadership that you, Mr. President, represents will guide the two major political parties to go where Nigeria ought to go.
We say this because history will be fair to you if you to Justice, Equity and Fairness, even in this wee hours of your administration. History will be kind to you, Mr. President, if you drive the enabling environment that will represent the oneness of Nigeria which every Indigenous People of Nigeria accuse you of sidelining, including people of your own ethnic Nationality. Because the Fulanis are also endangered. They are endangered because while you were away, while your government is on, their invaders, which Mr. President, confirmed that they came from Libya and Central African Republic, invaded our communities and slaughtered indigenous people all in the name of landgrabbing.
As the President and Commander-in-Chief, you are expected to jettison every parochial and political interests to put Nigeria first.
The Indigenous People of Nigeria will participate in the choice of the next President of Nigeria because we are the victims.
Therefore, Mr President, we restate our plea and prayer that you lead the Nation beyond political and parochial interest, and put the Nigeria first at this critical time.
Once again, we welcome you back Mr President!!!
This is a message from *Mazi Nnamdi Iroegbu*, the Convener of the *Indigenous People of Nigeria, IPN,* on behalf of every indigenous Nigerian.
