…As Tanko slams Danjuma

By Nwafor Sunday

The Rivers state governor, Nyesome Wike, has commended the audacity displayed by former Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Theophilus Yakubu Danjuma at the convocation ceremony of Taraba state on Saturday.

Danjuma who accused the Nigerian army and other security agencies of colluding with killers to attack Nigerians charged the people of Taraba and Nigerians to defend themselves against ethnic cleansing, yesterday received both kudos and criticisms from Nigerians.

Governor Nyesome Wike was among those who praised him and saluted his guts. On the other hand Tanko Yakassai, an elder statesman slammed him, saying that his advice cannot be likened as words from an elder.

Speaking during the swearing in of judges in Port Harcourt, Wike said, “Nigeria, as it is, is now completely directionless and heading on a dangerous downward slide. Nigeria has got to a point that we don’t know where we are heading.

“I don’t fast, but I will fast and pray to God to keep General Danjuma. General Theophilus Danjuma has said the truth. It is happening daily in Rivers state”, he said.

On his own, Tanko Yakassai, said, “What Gen. Danjuma said is hardly the words of elders. Elders are known for trying to calm down tension and not to invite conflict.

“If the two warring groups decide to defend themselves, it means there would be endless anarchy and this is not what we want in this 20th century.

“The military remains his constituency even though he left service over 40 years ago. He is still respected among the rank and file. He has the opportunity to meet the highest echelon of the army to talk to them and advise them. This is a better option than calling for anarchy’, he said.
