His name is Muhammadu Buhari. He is the current President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and supposedly hails from Daura in Katsina State. This would not be his first foray into the arena of governmental administration, as he was also the despotic and tyrannical head of a military dictatorship from 1983 - 1985. Her name is Amina Mohammed, current Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations, and she is the Fulani parochialist who has made it her mission at the world body to sanitize a man whose hands drip with enough blood to fill oceans of water. This is why he has aptly been named the 'Butcher of Daura'

Muhammadu Buhari, much like he has never met a Fulani he did not like, regardless of what country they may be from (he even once supported a Fulani individual for a regional position at the expense of a well qualified Nigerian who was non-Muslim and from the Southern part of Nigeria), has also never seen a non-Muslim and non-Fulani blood he could not shed, so long as his Fulanization and Islamization agenda is enhanced in the process. 

Fast forward to September 24, 2021, President Muhammadu Buhari stood before the United Nations General Assembly in New York, and in addressing that August gathering, he lied repeatedly and shamelessly from both sides of his mouth. What was even more disturbing was that the United Nations, a body whose credibility and global standing has been on shaky ground for at least two decades, welcomed a mass murderer and unabashed ethnic cleanser into its midst, and essentially sought to aid in the sanitization of a blood-thirsty dictator.

For the record, Muhammadu Buhari, after his tyrannical reign from 1983-1985 had been soundly rejected three times by Nigerians of all ethnic backgrounds when he ran for the Presidency of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in the elections of 20032007, and 2011. As a testament to his predisposition to blood-letting, he (Buhari) once issued a threat during his campaign for the 2015 Presidential Elections that "If what happened in 2011 should again happen in 2015, by the grace of God, the dog and the baboon would all be soaked in blood".

In addition to his propensity for violence or inciting violence to achieve his objectives, there is nothing Muhammadu Buhari can do to extricate himself from the perception and indeed the reality, that not only is he an ethnic bigot, but he is also a jaundiced religious bigot. His credentials as a religious extremist is buttressed by his calls in 2001 for the comprehensive adoption of Sharia Law in Nigeria stating at the time, "God willing, we will not stop the agitation for the total implementation of Sharia in the country."

His agenda of Islamization and Fulanization (putting his ethnic Fulani brethren who constitute a mere 5% of the Nigerian population in strategic positions of governance thus influencing key national policy agenda) has been evident since his second coming in 2015. The terrorist Fulani Herdsmen (designated by world bodies as being one of the five most deadly terrorist groups in the world) under the aegis of their benefactors, Miyetti Allah have been allowed to murder, usurp, rape and pillage at will. 

With the backing of the Buhari administration and the Fulani-born Attorney-General, Abubakar Malami, the Sultan of Sokoto, Mohamed Sa'ad Abubakar and the governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, the likes of Boko Haram, ISWAP and the Fulani Herdsmen have continued with their systematic killing of those opposed to the Islamization agenda of the Buhari administration and the Northern Nigeria oligarchy. 

The credibility of the United Nations and its Fulani-born Deputy Secretary-General, Amina Mohammed (the resident apologist for the Buhari tyranny being unleashed on Nigerians) has been further damaged by the charade of September 24, 2021. The optics both inside and outside that August Gathering were indeed bad for both the Nigerian government and the United Nations.

That the Buhari administration went to the extent of paying non-Nigerians in New York at the UNGA gathering of world leaders, to counter the demonstrations against his autocratic rule, was evidence of the fact that the UN was in bed with a tyrannical despot, desperate for international credibility and acceptance. 

It was indeed a disgrace and a black eye on an increasingly discredited global body that now officially has the blood of hundreds of thousands of innocent Nigerians on its hands.

The world is watching.
